Hey guys
Anyone know what would cause the cam gears on one side to be slightly out of timing. It's an EJ206 that I've swapped into my Outback.
With the right hand side lined up perfectly

The left hand side is like this, only slightly out

Timing belt was changed about 1000ks ago before the engine was swapped in. All genuine with new tensioner and ilders etc. Was all perfectly timed when installed.
Could this be what's causing its rough running. (Everyting except MAP sensor has been replaced with brand new genuine parts)
