Default Re: Threw a rod. Help me choose a new engine.

I believe IAG offers a warranty if they build and install the motor! To be honest, I don't know why every shop wouldn't warranty a motor build, if they build, and install it, and either tune it, or look at the existing tune on the car. If a shop won't warranty a motor that they build, install, and tune.... They are not confident in their own abilities, and therefore would be scratched off the list if it were my build!! Its pretty sad to keep seeing peoiple spend $10-$20,000 on a complete build at a shop, and then getting completely screwed when the motor goes again, sometimes in just a few hundted miles!
BTW, AMR is surely on the list of scumbag companies not to trust with your Subaru!!

Are there engine builders out there that will waranty a built motor? . . . Looking into Ralispec, Performance Auto Solutions, AMR, and Element... any other shops in the northeast that anyone would recommend for a big job like this? Anyone have any other experience with engines built or tuned by these guys?
No one I know of offers an actual warranty.

I'm in the same boat time wise. I would build today. IAG hasn't gotten me an estimate/quote or schedule. I think I have a close to a dozen emails and a long phone conversation during the last month. Ralispec has never even answered one email, and I've made several inquiries of the last three years.

Frustrated.

No they don't. Info obtained firsthand. They say they stand behind their work, but no written or official warranty.

IMHO, to justify its' price, the S209 needs to perform at least as well as my moderately powered 05 built beater, and even that might not convince me to buy one cause my next STI isn't likely to be moderately powered.

I'm putting IAG back in here. Engine wise the car hase been trouble free for 56K. My STI is nearing the 60K minimum JJ led meto expect from a 2618 piston equipped block and it's still running strong.
