    Big Sky,,
    Wont a 3/8"drive torque wrench handle all the torque work??
    I ordered those to start with.
    Mark from QR is helping me out with the tools.
    He is buying them for me and sending me them.
    3/8" Flex-Head ratchet
    3/8" Breaker bar
    3/8" Torque wrench
    3/8" 6-point set of metric sockets 8mm thru 17mm
    3/8" extensions (3", 6", 9")
    U-Joint
    spark plug socket
    O2 socket
    telescoping magnet
    Most of them excluding the magnet,O2 socket and spark plug sockets are Craftsman.
    Do you think with those tools i can start ??
    First i want to change uppipe and downpipe ,After i will change Fuel Pump,Injectors and Turbo..
    I know i need more tools like Pliers and those things ,,but i will buy slowly cause good tools are expensive.
    Thanks

    That's a good start and will do all the jobs you've listed- although I don't see any combination wrenches listed- you'll need a set of wrenches in addition to your sockets.

    The 1/2" torque wrench comes more into play for suspension related worked- higher torque specs.

    Those are the wrenches i have,
    They are in Inches sizes,,so i dont think they will work well with Subaru Bolts.
    Are they good to Subarus Bolts??
    Also the top right of the pic shows my tool to take my spark plug from my motocross bike,,but i dont think it will fit to take a cars spark plug..The right bottom part shows 2 screwdrivers i have that i love them,when i bought there were 6,,now there are only 2 ,,i lost the rest.
    Are those Durabuilt screwdrivers hard to find there in the USA??

    My 2 remaining babies.
    I have lots of tools cause i was the one who worked on my dirt bike(i sold it when i broke myself),,i am the one who fixes the paintball guns from my paintball team,I am the one who work on my Kart.
    I know working on car is much more complicated,,and thats why i cant work on my car alone,but definately making experiences from working on other things that i can f*** up is better than messing with my WRX..
    Why the WRX egine is so complex??

    Your going to need wrenches- the SAE (inches) won't be of any help. Have him add it to your craftsman order, also have him get you the spark plug socket w/ a built in wobble (universal) these are worth it.

    I'm not familiar w/ Durabuilt tools.

    This is a stupid question, but after trying to use my father's ramps I have to ask. Are the Rhino Ramps low enough to allow me to drive up on them with my WRX which has factory ground effects? If not, does anyone know of a ramp that will? Jacking this car up all the time is a royal pain when I would like to just drive it up on some ramps sometimes. Thanks guys

    One tool that is really handy and easy on the budget is a combination screwdriver - it has different tips stored in the handle and it is really easy to switch them out without going back to the toolbox.

    Rhino ramps will work. I was running the front oe lip and was lowered about 1.5" and had no problems. I bought mine cheap at Walmart.

    Thought I'd pass on a deal I recently saw for Craftsman. It's a 251 pc set (SAE and metric) 1/4", 3/8" and 1/2" drive includes 153 sockets (6pt and 12pt) and 26 combination wrenches (SAE and metric)- they have this set half off for $134.99 if you a Craftsman club memeber (free)- this set normally sells for $300. If your looking for a good set to build off of, you won't beat this price (sale starts Mar17-31).

    oops, missed that one.

    Yeah, he sure was. I've heard the guy was practically worshiped in Brazil.
