I wish.

Side note: Killer B oil pan/baffle/pick up are all on the block now. Almost go time. I have pictures, but I haven't had a chance to upload them. Been working a lot lately to pay for this debacle.

And I bought a new argon cylinder on Friday, sure as shit it's contaminated so I need to go back to the gas place today. C'est la vie!!

Well.. I got it back last night, I'd be lying if I said I wasn't disheartened at the condition that it was left in, among other things.

Last night was pretty rough. Broken bolts, dirty Alcantara from the boxes they put on the seats, and a motor that never actually got torn down.

Stupid dickheads. This is why I probably won't take it to the dealer even if it's within my extended warranty. Im sure there's good dealers just like there's good and bad tuners etc but they aren't close to me and if I'm shipping the car its going to be to Maryland.

At least she's safe back with you again. I used to do only minimal work on my cars, especially with the STI under warranty. Multiple bad experiences led me to do almost exclusive work on my cars now. If it needs something I can't do like annual inspection or if I'm truly stumped, I go to an independent mechanic with some sense. It's sad that it has to be that way. I've learned to value actual reliability over warranty tenfold now, though luckily overall subaru reliability is very high.

What's the argon for, plasma cutting their mistakes off?

I typically do all my own work, there isn't anything I don't have access to when it comes to tools (for the most part). I only did this, because the car is still under warranty.


The argon is to try and make more money TIG welding so I can pay for this mess. :-|

That's fair. I'm still on the fence if I'll take mine to Subaru if it blows while under warranty. On one hand I paid for it and I should use it, but on the other hand I don't know if it's worth the risk exposing it to arguably incompetent and/or apathetic individuals. I'd rather go ahead and have a working short block that I could sell when swapping out, but it may not be worth it. That, and I've seen so many times where Subaru took weeks and weeks to get the job done. I'd hate to go without the car all that time, then be without it even longer during the engine swap, and all the while it might even have new issues from its time at Subaru. It almost isn't worth it to me.

I recommend not taking it there. I'll have the pictures up soon... I'm going very much public with the retaliation that resulted from me refusing to have the car serviced by them

I've read too many similar posts where the dealer just boxed shit up once the consumer decided to go elsewhere rather than pay for a stock block...damaged parts, missing bits, stripped bolts, etc. All that damage and half the time you have a four figure bill to "repay" them for all that useless "work." No thx, I'd rather pay out of pocket than run that risk.

It really all depends which dealership; the one I deal with, has 2 guys who are heavy into modding sitting at the service desk. I was assured, not on the record and discretely, that if my engine blew and I brought the car back with stock parts and tune back on, that they would push a new shortblock through warranty. Luckily it never came to that, but just goes to show you its luck of the draw with how dealerships react. Sorry to hear that you got a crap one...
