Timing belt change doesn't seem all that hard on a Subaru. Since its a boxer engine...the timing belt is literally front and center looking right at you.

I've seen timing belt changes on which the timing belt is all the way to right (or left...depending which model you have) of the engine. Mechanics had to unbolt the engine from the chassis to gain access to the timing belt.

To OP,
how about a 4 door civic si? EPA is 29mpg HIGHWAY...however, since you're an ecomodder, im sure you can achieve 35mpg highway

See the rest of the Sti project log:
