    I was doing my timing belt on my 2009 WRX and I got to where I had to readjust the two driver's side cams since they sprung out of position. My friend came over and started rotating both top and bottom one clockwise (which I realized later on that the bottom one was supposed to only rotate...

    What are the good kits these days? Specifically for ~300 whp. All my research indicated Gates used to be good but the quality went into the trash can around 2014. I have also seen recommendations for OEM but that looks like one of the most expensive options. Currently I am thinking Aisin vs...

    When swapping out my timing belt, I aligned the intake cam of the #2 & #4 cylinders 180 degrees off. I only realized this when the car wouldn't start or even stumble after reassembling everything (the timing marks are remarkably similar!:rolleyes:). I don't think I bent a valve because nothing...
