    What year/model is the car? My bet is you will have problems getting the cam sprockets off, depending on the year???.....I put cams in an 06 WRX at work a few months ago and dear lord, it took a torch, an air chisel and all my might to brake loose the cam sprocket bolt, and in the end I had no choice but to destroy the bolt and cam sprocket and order another one, the shoulder on the bolt is tight as sin...I'm just sharing my experience, I have done dozens and dozens of these timing belts and depending on the year, and if they are leaking or not you may want to avoid installing cam seals, I never install them with a timing belt job unless they are leaking, same with the water pump...I dont think in all the years I have been working on these things have I seen a water pump fail...
