  1. Yes found the EZ thanks, no reference to H6 though.
  2. Thanks, a lot to think about there, but hopefully its all top end work, and will fit new water pump. You mentioned that EZ is the unstated crown jewel of Subaru engines, good to hear but what does EZ refer to?
  3. Thanks Mr B, you also confirm my own thoughts. As for the price I could shop around, but I am mindful that if there are problems, I might be better off with our local dealership who I have some trading history with, rather than a outfit miles away who I won't know from Adam?

I had it converted to dual fuel, LPG/petrol, and it has been a brilliant car for 7 years, drives like a dream, and is so cheap to run. In December, I suffered a major water loss and by the time I realised, the head was cooked. I had the cooling system fixed, and the local dealership sniff tested the coolant and confirmed that there is gas in it. Quote to do both gaskets is £2,800 + vat (if the job is s
