Let me know what you think of the beatrush trans mount, I'm in the market for one. I have the beatrush pitchstop mount. It's very solid and a great piece just lots of nvh even with a straight pipe. Haven't really seen a good review on one.

I'll let you know for sure! I just installed my JDM double DIN AV plate the other day. Just been super swamped and now it's supposed to snow :O


I'm debating going EWG and getting a Grimmspeed Up pipe to compliment the flex fuel stuff.

I need another job. lol

Not 100% sure, but it sounded like rocks in a can. I'm guessing it's possible that either the oil pick up tube broke completely (or partially), or ring lands. LOTS AND LOTS of knock, which wasn't audible at speed, but when I pulled over to the shoulder it was like - Oh. Yeah. So something was moving around in there. Funny thing is, I had no unusual knock until it, just broke.

Got towed to the dealer for now, so we'll see if they warranty it. I always knew this would happen, and it's certainly not my first blown motor (I think this is number 6 or 7 in the line of engines I've ever had in various cars lol), but damn the timing is poor.

Full report as soon as I can.

I guess if they won't warranty it for whatever reason, I'm at 45K, in just shy of 2 years, I will look at IAG or Out Front Motorsports.

Looking back, I kinda felt this was coming - idle has been a little more choppy/rough than it usually is, and power seemed to maybe be a little down, I assumed I was just used to what it had. I do a lot of daily driving so I don't beat the crap out of it a lot, so it was curious that the power felt down.

Sounds like a rod bearing to me. Good luck with the repair. Hopefully Subaru takes care of you. Happened to me about 4,000 miles ago. It's an oiling issue and, sadly, NOT uncommon. As long as you've done your oil changes at the proper intervals you should be ok. You did say you were getting excessive blowby though. Were you checking your oil about every week or so to make sure you weren't low?
