Answer this. 2 cars, similar mileage, condition, one with engine replaced, what would you purchase. Just think about it. I hate that you made me type this.
Not likely to replace the engine. As in WHOLE engine. A whole engine includes the short and long block. My best friend is a tech, I know what is involved with mitigating an oil consumption issue in the FB motors, both Forester and Impreza. Also the 1qt per 1200 miles is the standard they use as the threshold, so that is a fact, not a matter of opinion. With regards to 'you people', I thought I was doing you a favor by not calling you out, but hey - I meant "vwgti123". Happy? To to answer your last point, you still haven't addressed how they would know it was a replacement engine? That's MY
point, you don't seem to get it. Perhaps you should take a bit more time reading the post thoroughly. As the FNG, I would think you would do more listening?
