    Timing chain for sure..
    Have the trans. checked out prior to purchase.
    I'd consider doing the 90K mile tune up done if it hasn't been done....I had my 60K done 4 years and 10K miles late with no problems. Just had the bucks to do it.
    I have an 89 Subie that I love..it's only got 75K miles on it and the timing chain was changed out at 70K because I wanted to keep driving it forever...These cars will go anywhere for a long time.
