Default 2015 Sti Rod knock

I have a 2015 Sti with 11k miles on it, I run Rotella T6 oil in it, and the only mod I have on the car right now is an AEM Cold Air Intake, do you think subaru will try to void my warranty?

You're not running a tune with your intake? I just don't understand why people still seem to put parts on and not tune for them; especially something that changes a crucial component (Intake). To answer your question; they could indeed deny coverage as you're running aftermarket parts, and also not running (Subaru recommended weight oil 5-30 API SN) While Rotella probably wasn't the cause, it gives them an excuse. I hope that you have good luck and get them to cover any issues though.

Did you tune the car with the intake ? You should have.

Yes I run the Cobb AP with OTS Maps, but I uninstalled it before turning it into the dealership

I didn't know Cobb had a OTS map for that intake for the 2015's. Hopefully all will turn out good for you though man!

Did you datalog?

Even people who blow their motors on Stage1/2, I've seen get covered under warranty. Just got to be tactful.

This guy man,

Maybe next time listen to the people telling you what your doing is a bad idea.

& maybe then you wouldn't have to be posting on here about your "rod knock"
