uh yeah. i've overheated the forester a few times. this particular engine, the type1 ej25 is notorious for blowing headgaskets. so i'm treating myself to some new ones. before i destroy the block and heads. heads are warped and will get machined flat. new gaskets and head bolts. they were worried about a weird mark in the cylinder wall but they tested it and it's ok. can't wait to get it back and fixed.
