This set was a perfect fit on my 2003 Subaru Baja.
My car was running terrible: stumbling on excelleration, lack of power, backfiring, OBDII misfire cylinder 3. Spark plugs and wires looked good. When I checked the plugs I noticed all the plug hoods had oil on them. I got strange readings on the ignition coil, but I didn't think that expensive part was really the problem.
I talked to a mechanic friend who told me the high voltage from the coil was probably arcing through the oil on the hoods, and that I needed to replace the gaskets that seal off the spark plug tubes at the valve cover. I had planned on replacing them (and the the wires) anyway, but to stop the oil from leaking not thinking about the arcing issue.
Sure enough, this fixed the whole performance problem!
I did the whole job from the topside, and it was actually pretty easy to do. A tip I learned the hard way - I took the oil filler spout off the cover to remove it (may not be necessary), but be sure to reinstall it before reinstalling the cover, or you won't be able to install one of the bolts.

I bought these for my car which seemed great. The gasket set was on sale, and I got 20% off. The problem was the set says all parts included, but the spark plug grommets were missing, so I take them back to the store and sounds like all are the same.I guess Im better off with my local dealer.

    Comments about Felpro Valve Cover Gasket Set:

    I only use Fel-Pro products whenever possible. They always fit. They also have a blue color to them. That might not seem like it is important but it stands out in an engine compartment to prove that I have made the replacement.

          Comments about Felpro Valve Cover Gasket Set:

          Installed myself in an '03 Forester 2.5X manual transmission. Kit includes two cover gaskets and four plug well gaskets. The gaskets looked and felt like quality materials, perhaps even superior to the Japanese factory parts (this year and model was made in Japan. The valve cover gasket path is busy, the gaskets were pre-formed and sat snugly in the covers, which is a plus for installation given the H configuration and limited working clearances, particularly on the driver's side. The result is a bone dry seal, nice and uniform and tight. As an aside, I've used Felpro gaskets on small block Chevy's, Series 1 Buick 3.8, Toyota 20R, Ford 4.6L, Nissan 2.5L, and now the Subaru H4(yes, I like a good motor, regardless of size); engine, exhaust, water pump gaskets, and I have always been pleased with the product. I am not a mechanic and not in the auto parts industry, just a guy who likes to wrench on his own vehicle when the work matches my available time, determination, and skill set.

            Comments about Felpro Valve Cover Gasket Set:

            My 2002 Subaru Outback was drinking oil. We think most of it was ending up in the spark plug wells turning into sludge and eventually fouling the plugs. CEL would come on indicating either misfire or poor Catalyst efficiency. These new gaskets appear to have solved these issues. Take your time installing them and you should be fine. Replace the spark plugs and wires at the same time.

              Comments about Felpro Valve Cover Gasket Set:

              I was very surprised to the quality of the gaskets. This was a kit with three different gaskets. It was great. I was more than satisfied in that when I felt of the quality it was supple, thick and of good consistency. The price was the best price I could find and believe me I research every car part before I choose where and whom to buy it from. It was also a pleasure to have a code discount that applied to each and every order. The only catch was to register and I have no problem with that because most websites require this anyway. I highly recommend Advance Auto Parts when you need auto parts. And if for any reason you are not satisfied you can take the part back to any Advance Auto parts store with no questions asked, just bring your receipt. Thanks.
