Hello everyone. I need to change my valve cover gasket since I found them leaking. Did anybody change theirs? I can't find the right part number for them. There is many variant of ej20g and can't seem to find the right info.

      Rockauto.com is your friend. I think I used a Legacy's valve cover gasket.

      I'll check to see if they have a purchase history option and let you know what I picked. Don't forget the donut gaskets and the ones for around the spark plug holes.

        Any time i need part numbers for JDM subarus I use this website.

        http://subaru.epcdata.ru/

        its russian but if you use chrome with page translate it works mint! Put in your VIN number off your forester, find the valve covers and get the number. I usually google search the number after and see if it crosses over to another USDM car. Or, call up Trevor at Frontier and ask him if that number is available. Hes my go to guy at subaru
