Unable to get it started, had it towed to the shop.
They called and the were unable to get it turn over by hand.
They have started the tear down and will let me know what they find.

I'll keep you all posted as to what they find.

My poor baby

How does water gen onto the oil - especially if not hydro-locked.

I helped a friend get a junkyard engine that sat with a head off with dirt and water in some cylinders. He work oil into em and honed em after he got they assembly rotating, honed em above the pistons.

Not what I'd want to see at my shop, but it ran fine for a couple of years . . . Changing the oil can't hurt, but water doesn't normally get there easily

Heard back from the shop today.
Top end looks ok, but lower short block is stuck and will not turnover by hand.

The insurance adjuster is going to swing by the shop tomorrow and go over with the mechanic to see what will need to be done. I'm thinking new short block is going to be next...

<fingers crossed> hopefully get my baby back soon.

IFyou're covered like me, you'll most likely receive an entire long-block. It'll be way cheaper AND EASIER for insurance to simply swap out the entire long block, rather than a dealer having to worry about getting the heads disassembled, inspected and skimmed if needed, then needing to worry about correctly torque'ing the heads onto the block (which we all know is an entire can of worms in and of itself.)

Production numbers of my Type-S (with the specific J35) are much less than the STi so if they were able to source me a J35, an EJ25 should be no problem for you.

Update:

Got the car back from the shop today... $ 5k later.
Insurance covered most of it thank goodness.

Breaking in the new short block and enjoying the new clutch.

Thanks all for the advise and suggestions !!!

Wow I'm surprised to hear they reused your heads.

I did the same thing; while the engine was out I had them install new rear motor mount and clutch/flywheel. Out of my own pocket, obvi.


Glad to hear it worked out
