Cool.

Head straight to the FAQ sticky section. A wealth of info there.

Change all of the fuel lines and filters. Check the fuel flow from the tank when the hose is off. It should pour out quickly.
Don't trust the Cat's efficiency if it looks at all on the old side.

Oh yeah, and welcome!

Get ready, start!

1. Replace all fuel lines.
2. Solder new eyelets on ALL GROUNDS
3. Add new ground strap at engine
4. New injector seals
5. Re-seal gas tank if leaking. Or, don't top it up & use gas dry!
6. New temp sensors, oil sensors (or, add guage)
7. Replace all vacuum lines
8. Repack CV joints.
9. Replace O2 Sensor ground wire!
10. Add Subaru coolant conditioner.
11. Replace ALL cooling hoses
12. Replace radiator...trust me.
13. Test rad fan relays & clean terminals at resistor.
14. Put in Evans waterless coolant. (read: no cooling pressure req'd)

OR, take it camping this weekend. The Vanagods are in control anyways!
