Best of luck . . . .
Thanks and yes, running a AEM Pump and Cobb 1050 injectors with Delicious tuning flex fuel kit. I am very happy about the warranty, it seems IAG only put it into effect last month. But I must follow the break in oil changes.

*Permissible Break-In Oils: Motul Break-In Oil (Preferred), Royal Purple Break-In, Brad Penn Break-In.
• Run Conventional 5w30 fluid and OEM or Purolator Pureone filter for first 50 miles, as outlined above.
• Change oil to break-in oil at 50 miles (as highlighted above), and replace oil filter and crush washer.*
• Change oil with break-in oil at 500 miles on your new engine, and replace oil filter and crush washer.
• Change oil with break-in oil at 1500 miles and replace oil filter and crush washer.
• Finally, change oil at 3000 to Motul 5w40 Synthetic and replace oil filter and crush washer.
• From this point forward, use Motul 5w40 Synthetic and change oil and filter every 2500-3000 miles.
• Make a habit of always checking your fluids every few hundred miles. Built engines can consume oil, though
most IAG street-clearance engines should use less than 1 quart of oil per 3000 mile oil change after break-in. If
your oil consumption deviates, please let us know.

$140/hr is disrespectfully high.

I paid half of that but I got a deal, you shouldn’t be paying a penny over $100/hr for quality experienced labor. (And I wouldn’t even pay that much)

Its not Florida its Long Island where everything is expensive. $140 is pretty damn high, thats dealership pricing but you get what you pay for around here.

I don't know of a great shop under $100.
As another reference point IAG still says $110/r on their web site.
Ill add if i get a chance.

Basic Labor Rates:
$
EFI Logics (CT) 125
IAG (MD) 110

Default Re: Short Block Quote and Labor Prices

So I stopped by the shop today to drop off something and was asked if I'd like to do the clutch. The recommended the ACT Extreme street and flywheel, I figured I might as well while the car is still apart, I'll save on labor costs and my current stock clutch has 40 miles on it. I figure I can have them increase the TQ after break in.

I'm looking at a total now of 11.6k when all is said and done. Just a heads up to anyone else in this situation and looking for a guesstimate. I plan on keeping the car now and I will look for a daily and keep this one for weekend/ summer trips and future track use. It's very expensive to own and modify a Subaru. I am at around 17k with the engine and modifications/tunes so far. I bought the car for 30k.

According to the shop the car could be ready as early as tomorrow afternoon or Monday.

Edit: I just wanted to say that the shop I went with was thousands cheaper then the 3 other quotes I received.

Is it actually cheaper to mod other cars to the same extent as what you've done with the Subaru?

Thank you for reminding me why I do all my own work

If I had to pay someone to do mods, I would never do them.

Damn, I don't have that much into modding my car, and that includes suspension, brakes, gauges, etc. I did the cheapest, effective motor build I could... A new shirt block with drop-in pistons and head studs.

Hope it all stays together for you.

You never paid for labor ! I couldn't do the motor rebuild myself, but I did everything else on my car and sometimes with help, and I saved sooo much money. The car wouldn't be where it is now if I had paid to get everything done.
