There are much more affordable options that are better than OEM but cheaper than the cossie block.

Couldn't have said it better.

Way overkill for that. You can get a nice shortblock installed for $5-6k. No need to spend $12k+.

Yeah i'm going to peak reliability. Why I said a cossie block, only one that I know of and can think of at the moment. I'll keep looking into it. Any suggestions?

Just because your paying 12k for that block doesn't mean its better it safer.

Your over-paying for the cosworth name and they're more high HP racing applications. If you want reliability, just go to a shop and have them install forged pistons. I had 365/365 on a stock block with pistons and stock heads with cams.

12k can get you one hell of a motor at an independent shop... like EFI Logics.

Yeah, for sure. It's usually not the block. its the owner. You can have the most expansive block in the world and still blow ringlands for being stupid.

I'll talk to efi about it, once i get my result back from subaru. Hopefully its fine or at the very least covered by the warranty. if not. Oh well. Got to pay to play

Took it to subaru and they said nothing was found in the oil. And will be putting me on the consumption test. If I find any consumption bring it and they will have a look at it. Got put on subaru oil. Specially designed for turbo charged engines. So It shouldn't be consuming much now.

got a quote for a compression test. $228 + taxes(12%)

Wow. Compression test is something you can do yourself. I'd never pay that much for one, it should be a third of that price.
