Best place to get ej22 headgaskets
 
Gday,

I'm currently in the process of pulling my engine to do the headgaskets and the oil separator plate but I'm not sure the best place to get my them from. I'm guessing subaru could supply some but it would be more expensive? Is there an online store someone could suggest?

Thanks

Alldrive Subaru do the better MLS headgaskets. Don't bother getting graphite ones, they are a joke.

Oil separator plate was $54.10 including the 6 bolts (5 of one type and 1 of the other) from Subaru. There may be cheaper online, but I wanted it quickly. Just make sure you get the steel one and not the plastic or aluminum one.

Subaru have chosen some dud materials to seal their engines with over the years...

Headgaskets on an EJ22 is quite rare, haven't heard of it before.

The AllDriveSubaroo product would be good I imagine.
@El_Freddo probably also knows a good source.

Any engine will need HGs at some point. It can come down to design and the engine's treatment/abuse.

My 22 was fitted in 2008, it had 127k km on it according to the donor vehicle's odometre. I've put 120k km extra on it that have been documented. I say documented as for about 10k km I had no speedo and for a large number of those km I put on it as the speedo was about 28km under actual speed - I used to drive by a gps.
Further, my engine was run at 120 deg while off-roading in very soft sand for a few minutes running anti boil coolant (read from a mechanical gauge tapped into heater circuit line on coolant out from engine line). I managed to freeze the coolant in the block during my first season at Hotham after replacing the coolant with the wrong type and extremely cold westerly wind of about -15*C at the start of the season while the vehicle was still parked up high and facing into the wind.

Even after the above, loads of off-roading and some rev limiter action the HGs didn't pop until I got the AC regassed. Seems that little bit of extra heat in summer finished them off good and proper after two days >:( that was about four years ago now.

Hit up Andy (green tree frog on the forum I think) at Dom's motors in Griffith or partsouq.com for genuine parts. Having a VIN on hand is mega useful in both cases. Andy is very informative and partsouq is dangerous as you start racking up the shopping cart!

Cheers
