    Though about no-name, but I'm 90% sure it cylinder 4 which is a PITA to replace. I just ordered 2 OEM so I can change #3&4 while I'm there. Rockauto was the best price for new from the searching I did. Amazon.com was close but I always get a fedex bill for custom clearance from them for $40 like 1 month later.

    Camping with bugeye and my oldest son. Did a couple days of sweet hiking in the David Thompson area.

    Back for sale again. I found I'm daily driving my truck or van most of the time so I may as well get something more impractical, right?!

    New owners drove this Subaru away today. Back to the auctions, again.

    That's not necessarily a bad thing!

    I forgot the exclamation mark! I'm actually excited to bring in another car, this time something very impractical since my last import was a van, haha!

    I have nearly the identical car on the way. Do you just run 94 in it or is there a way to get it tuned for 91?

    I ran 94 husky 90% of the time with the occasional top up only of 91 shell.

    Tuning options are limited to 3 options:
    1) PowerFC
    2) Standalone ecu like Vi-PEC.
    3) Ecutek, software and tune only

    Talk to a tuner near you. Lightspeed Innovations in Red Deer can work with some standalone's and Ecutek. Budget $2kish.

    Here in NS I don't know anyone besides Paynter's Symmetrical Autoworks that might be able to tune it. We don't have 94 at the pump anywhere, so it looks like I'll be buying toluene in bulk.
