Hey Ben what did it end up costing you to have the helicoil done on the rocker arm?

that's why mechanical wise i love the subaru's..most of the stuff like the pitch stop mount and a bunch of other parts are compatible from the mid 90's through the late 2000's..

Actually, the previous owner had the helicoil reinstalled, but he used the wrong part. I think he used cast iron instead of aluminum.

As for cost - i have no clue. My dad ordered it without my permission and didn't give me a price, so i have a feeling i will be working overtime for a week or so.

I'm genuinely curious because now that my suspension will be complete with the sway bars I'm interested in some racing seats. R!ce or not I want seats that hold me in during the nice cornering/back roads I like to go on, stock seats suck ass at holding you in.

I love the stock seats on my 330, they're very confirmable and they look really sporty.

Tanner, I decided to keep my seats, and spent the money on my retrofit.

But if you were going to get seats. I suggest the following for fitment.

- sparco torino 2 (what I have)
- sparco r100 (what I planned on getting)

The torino 2 is discontinued. But can be found used or some sites still have them new but iffy on if they are reputable site or not. Do research! The torino 2's are VERY tight fit. But are very nice. And you can bolt them to your stocl seat brackets with little modification. My driver side is power/manual adjusment. I got mine used in like new condition for 420 for the pair. Hell of a deal. New they are 600-700 a seat depending on where you look.


As for the r100. They are a little bigger in some measurements and also a little smaller in other measurements compared to the torino 2 seats. So when I did research I believe they would fit. Most other seats are way to big so I wouldnt really bother at looking at others. Mfuller has recaros. But those are like 1000 a seat or something crazy IIRC. And unless you want to spend the money... 3200 for bride seats are also out of the question.


But im still happy with my torino 2 seats. I just want to change the color of them, really. I like the blue. But wouldnt mind a silver or grey color with black.



Oh and the r100 is about 130 a seat. So very affordable and also reclinable. Same with the torino 2.


But my seats are 10x more comfy then stock. I can ride 5 hours and not have a single ache compared to stock seats. And they hold me in very well.

I also want to have a seat that matches stock colors, I feel black would stand out too much since the interior is a dark/light grey.

Yeah, I really need seats to. The stockers don't hold you very well in corners, and mine especially don't since they are the leather (vinyl). I always wanted Torino 2's but could never afford them at $600 each. I've considered Corbeau since they are more affordable, but it's still a decent chunk of change. My other option would be possibly finding some factory Recaros from a junkyard car (Cobalt SS/Saturn Ion redline maybe? Not sure what other cars have them).
