    So I was changing the timing kit on my 2000 Impreza and my right side cam (drivers right) move a bit. I can just move this back tho right if the crank is at Tdc. But when I went to move it back it felt like it wasn’t doing anything when being turned. I don’t even know where to begin with this...

    I have a 2002 Wrx. I bought it with a blown engine so I swapped it out for a good one. The car has a bigger turbo, bigger intercooler, cold air intake, and some other stuff.

    Hey all, figured I'd come to the Subaru guru's and ask this question. When I take off, even babying the car, I can hear an audible clunk/knock. Also, sometimes when I shift I'll hear the same clunk/knock. I was thinking engine mount(s) or transmission mount(s) or both. The vehicle also shakes...

    forgive me if this issue was discussed in the "raw gas smell" sticky but I wasn't quite sure..
