Hi, funny enough I am getting my driver side rocker gasket done by Revolution in a few weeks and its going to cost me roughly 145 that includes all rubber gaskets replaced and labour for a 1999 classic Turbo 2000.

Re: Newbie help - Rocker cover replacement

Just had the driver side rocker gaskets done, this is what is listed on the receipt:
All genuine subaru parts.
Rocker chest gasket kit right hand side classic
this kit included
Cylinder head plug x 2
Gasket rocker cover right hand side x 1
Washer rocker cover x 8
gasket rocker cover x 2

All this needed to be done as he showed me the original gaskets and they are in quite a state.
