IAG Threaded Plugs for FA Cylinder Heads (Set of 8)
The Subaru FA20 cylinder heads use pressed-in freeze plugs from the factory. It's common for the plugs to fall out, lose coolant externally or even internally into the oil. Unfortunately, most of the freeze plugs are located behind the timing cover and valve covers, so you would never know if they popped out. This can happen on OEM cars as well as cars with performance upgrades causing a number issues that could be catastrophic.
To solve the issue, the failure prone pressed-in freeze plugs are removed from the cylinder heads and threaded plugs are added in place. IAG provides the threaded plug upgrade on all of our FA cylinder head packages. In order to install the plugs IAG machine threads into (x4) freeze plug locations on each cylinder head. IAG offers the machine service separately (Service# IAG-MSS-2920).
