My machine shop buddy, dose a lot of these heads for the different dealers and repair shops in CT. When I told him about the timing flaw, he said, "oh, that explains it, why see see so many with bad valves.

My 05 has been on Cobb AP since 8000 miles. When he rebuilt my heads this past May, he said mine was the first one of these heads that didn't need any valves of guide work.

My Tuner has also found a the same flaw on the 5th gen's.

BTW, I have had a Perrin panel filter in the wagon since about 3000 miles.

So basically I would purchase this:
COBB Stage 1 Power Package for Legacy GT 05-06(COBB AP-SUB-002)

for around $700, plug it into the cars OBDII port, follow the on screen instructions and in about 10 minutes or so, I would gain 35HP and 40 lb/ft?? And not worry or worry as much about a burnt valve??

I wouldn't have to change the exhaust/air intake or anything?

My biggest concern is that my wifes Legacy would then be quicker than my Tundra
