I have an 00 Outback as well. SOHC. there ar no know problems with the SOHC motors, only the DOHC motors are renouned to blow gaskets at 160-180 thousand ks.

i just took it for a good hard run, the temp doesnt go above half at all, so im very pleased with that, now all i have to do is sort out this steering wobble issue when braking from 100km/h.... what do you think, wheel alignment? wheel bearings? or discs warped?

Probably warped, if you hit water when the brakes are hot it can easily warp the discs, maybe just rip them off & get them skimmed at a brake/clutch shop.

Apparently people reckon EJ251? are really bad for head gasket problems, usually before 160000 km. Mine is a 251 in my 03, with 168,000km on the clock.

Damn Many km on her/him?

H6 or just another EJ25? What is actually wrong with the engine? Could it be worth a rebuild if you got antoher 200,000km from it?

i hear that the H6 has a timing chain, where as the H4 is a belt, how hard would it be to install a H6 chain onto a H4?
