Anything in particular I should look for aside from the usual inspection stuff? It's a '93 impreza wagon, GF6 if I remember my alphabet soup right.

Listen to the rear wheel bearings... make sure they aren't bad.
Also make sure the car is cold when you start it up so you can listen to see how much piston slap there is.

The piston slap isn't really too much of a concern, it's just a good indicator on how old the car is or how tired the motor is.

Erik's Outback has 230k on it and it pretty much has it all the time now.
Mine is 180k and it only has it when it's cold.. once it warms up it's good.

That's about it as far as the early GC body style cars go.

Cool, figured there wasn't much to go over aside from the usual stuff. Hopefully it checks out ok and I come home with a rumble. :3

Pics are coming, was going to start cleaning it up today but I didn't find the keys until it was time to leave for work. Maybe tomorrow.

Most likely an engine.

According to the PO the timing belt slipped some teeth or something and messed up some of the valves. I was going to try and get the front covers off last night but my tool kit has gone missing and didn't want to use SAE sockets on stuff. I'm going to run by the shop today to get my metric stuff and bring it home so I can get in there and find what's up. A cursory inspection of the outside doesn't show any damage (leaky fluids, holes in the head/block) so there doesn't appear to be any catastrophic failure.

I'm really hoping the timing is just off or something and can be reset for a quick fix. I'll know more as the week progresses, or by this afternoon if I don't hear back from work.

easy thing to do is pop the front timing covers off and check the timing on each cam.

since it's a sohc.. it's really easy to check it. if it has slipped a tooth it will probably cause it to run poorly or not run at all.

i would put the timing back to stock.. see how well it runs.
if it runs rough.. a valve may be bent but then just pull the plugs to see which plug is fouled and that will let you know which cylinder.

pull the head off.. rebuild the head... and slap it back together.

bingo.

way cheaper than a new motor.
