The wife is going to go ballistic when she finds out warranty is gone lol.

Already have a quote to ship the car down to TAV. $175. Not bad. Build motor will be $400 by Bertune. $1500 to install. Hopefully no hang ups and we should be good. I am still missing a timing belt, head studs, gaskets and bearings though so that should all add up to about $800. So roughly $3000 total.
What!!!!! Sorry man.

Man you serioiusly have the "gotta haves". You're my hero! Your not alone with dealing with the ole ball'n chain though, been there and done that. Just tell her look honey, I have another engine I was going to swap in anyway! Then you stretch the truth and say hey honey, I'll be able to sell the OEM unit for some cash - dont forget to smile when you lay down the news.

A word of advice - though you may already know it - get a total game plan and a realistic outlook on what you really want to achieve. You seem to keep moving your goals, that's ok as long as all the other parts keep up with the new goals. If you don't think the plan over each time the plan changes you risk having a weak link that makes things go way wrong.

Also you will almost never be satisfied with the amount of power. Who is. Remember its your DD, not a race car, and even good parts and install wont guarantee you wont have many little issues you will always be chasing down. The more you mod the more likely that is.

Just some friendly advice. Otherwise have fun. and good luck.

I'm sorry to hear this. I hope you and your wife work things out.

good luck in the engine rebuild. At least now you can built the bottom end to handle the power.

This is my problem, I bought a 2011 wrx, and have done everything to get the most out of the stock VF52, tbe,injectors, fuel pump, cai, intercooler, BPV etc... plus all the suspension work and bushings, blah, blah, blah, it's really fast for a DD, but now i'm thinking bigger turbo......

I don't keep a car for more than 2 years, if I broke down what i've spent on my car in mods for the 2 months i've owned it by 24 months (time before I trade it in) plus my car payment of $420 per month that would total probably $620 per month for 2 years.....GODDAMNIT, I should just buy a GT-R and not touch the thing and be happy...with a friggin warantee on top of it because mine is gone.

You would still touch it though, insurance would be more, sales tax, license ext.

Such is the life of a car enthusiast. Why do people that love building gaming machines build machines that are overkill and could wipe the face of some business servers... Because they can.

It's a never ending cycle, and it's an expensive cycle lol

A whole lot. It looks like the proverbial can of worms is opening up....

All plausible, but see what SOA has to say. Ure issue has been very common as of late for that year car.

Glad to hear they are fixing it for you. A broken piston would be one thing I can understand blaming on tuning or increasing power output, but spinning a bearing at your mileage seems more like manufacturing defect to me assuming you changed the oil regularly and maintained the correct level of oil.

Are they considering your warranty voided now since you modded the car?

They said no. I have had the dealership do every oil change at 3,000+ miles so that is not an issue. I did leave a message for them that I wanted a picture of the pick up pipe and that I knew about the failures they have with them. Maybe that was the real issue and they knew that should be on them even with all the mods. Who knows. Eitherway I'm not complaining! I will sing the praises of this dealership once all is said and done. Maybe as soon as Friday they said.

My block is still being built this week though. Gives me time for some stocks to go up to pay for the swap lol.
