I dunno, I don't work on em every day, and I'm sure there are easier cars to work on as well as much more difficult cars to work on, but they're not really that bad
I did a top end overhaul. It wasn't that bad but there were a bunch of things that should have taken 1/5th the effort they did.

It’s funny, now that I bought the Subaru, I see clean v70s everywhere. I’ll probably get one someday, but a cheap, simple Legacy is perfect for now.

But really the best part is that since my daily is so slow, my 142 will always feel fast. I wasn’t looking forward to having a bone stock v70 turbo be faster than that rusty money pit in my garage.

That's how it always works out.

I don't know how fast a V70 would have been. Some P2 cars seem to feel much peppier than others with comparable service records imho.

You need a crows foot flare wrench to easily get it off of the rack...i might be thinking p80 with that actually.

It’s that it’s a hard line going around the whole subframe, tight fit with several bends. I just didn’t see how to easily get it out and get the new one in place.
