I agree with your statement. Maybe 06+ owners are not seeing the poll thread?

As mileage on the cars goes up so does the failures. I'm starting to see and more 08 failures and some 09 models too. No 2010 failures yet, but I supose no one has racket up enough miles on those yet.

Well I have the KBM oil pickup tube and oil pan on order. I ordered it before the 2/8 B-O date so I hope that it gets here soon. It is so unsettling that this is a problem and apparently Subaru is doing nothing about it until you cook your engine and then bring it into the dealer on a flatbed.

why would one need a different oil pan too?

You don't.

Since I will be taking the factory pan out, why not add the KBM oil pan which provides for an extra quart of oil capacity as well as for a second drain port which would allow for the addition of an oil temperature gauge system.

My choice to meet current as well as for potential future needs.

Well I'm not taking any chances with 2010 WRX. I'll be ordering this for my next oil change. Nothing wrong with a day in the garage....Perrin DP, SPT exhaust, Cobb Accessport Stage 2, Perrin filter, KB Oil pickup tube, Motuls 5w-30 oil....

I have an 06. Oil pressure light started flickering at startup and then would go away.

Here's how mine looked:


Freakin rediculous.

Thanks KillerB for all the help!

Is this usually a milage issue or can this just happen over time. The reason I ask is I have an 07 STI with only 13,000 miles on it but I never seem to be able to keep a car long enough to rack up more than 20-30k miles before I get bored and want something new.

Before 2006 you could pretty much count on 40K miles before failure. Since the design change that was made in 2006 the failures are more inconsistent. Generally they are over 30K, but in a few cases they are a bit sooner than that and there are a few instances (search here, on IWSTI.com & Legacygt.com) where pickup failure has happened to the same person more than once.

No but really. Now I'm worried. Although my 07 runs like a champ I dont want this to eventually happen.

Please run another groupbuy, I need one of these.

I believe it is inevitable stock pick ups will fail. My 04 sti failed a couple years ago resulting in a spun rod bearing post rod knock.

Any of you guys used a Permatex gasket maker to seal it back up? If you did, which one did you use?

this part is a must have ...period. the guys at killerb are super awesome, full of knowledge, and sell a quality part. I try to tell everybody that it is cheap insurance at $200 especially when people have so much $ dumped into the car, especially if you have a built motor.

I found out the hard way mine was bad, oil light flickered about 1000 feet from my house and went solid. killed the motor and coasted home. Ordered pick up and installed it, car ran fine. I thought I got lucky, till my brand new turbo took a dive and the car started smokin. I am pulling it to send off for a rebuild from lack of oil pressure. my pick up is at the bottom of page 1 of carnage if ya wanna take a look...completely broken

also, FWIW, I was running on a safe map as the car was not fully tuned for all the new parts i installed so I had not at all been driving the car hard. Had I installed this part sooner, it would have saved my $2000 dollar turbo
