Just make sure you read the review forums of wherever you take it. For me Outback Automotive in Auburn was my choice. Good work, prices and peeps.

Thanks for the input fellas. Yeah I went back and forth between English and PRE. I may go with PRE because it'll be on the way to the beach for my vacation so I can drop it off and pick it up on the way back.

Negative. I have to replace a wheel bearing before it can go on the dyno. Plus I used all my vacation and sick time when my daughter was born four weeks ago so I have to figure out when I can take it over.

You move up here yet?

Yep! Just got into town on Friday. Managed to tow the subie up here too, looking forward to tearing into it, just need some time to get all situated. We should be in a house this week, start work on the 27th.

Do you have access to a press? You can do that wheel bearing pretty cheap by yourself, under $100. Which one went out?

Good deal. You getting a house in the same area again?

It's the rear passenger side this time.It cost me $100 just for the bearing from LIC last one I changed. Is there somewhere cheaper to get an OEM bearing? There's an old guy in Pasco that hangs out at his machine shop all the time because he doesn't have anything better to do and pressed my last one for $20 cash so I was going to go to him again. He's there late even on weekends which works out well for my busy schedule.

Thats a good hookup. I bought one bearing set from subarugenuineparts.com. Thought it was like $77 last time, but that was in 09. Moving up to where beer falls use to be in kennewick before they developed there.

That machine shop in kennewick pretty much just does head work, I stopped by and spoke to them this morning. I am going to end up doing most of the work myself it looks like. It just costs more than I can justify right now taking it too a shop from all the quotes I have recently gotten.

Yes it is, directly behind baxters auto parts. I had machine work done to my 4g63 when I had my talon and he did a very good job and a decent price

I stopped in there the other day, he said he does the heads for the local dealership, but doesn't assemble anything. I will take my heads to him and have them freshened up. Most likely will have to assemble the motor myself. Think I'm just going to by a new oem short block and drop in forged pistons and put it back together.

Must have changed it to just headwork then, it has been a few years since i've used him. Only thing that sucks about a new OEM short block is the price.... haha

Yeah really! I found them at a colorado dealer with the nitrated crank for $1700 plus $105 to deliver. Then firgure another $500 - $550 for piston & rings. I figure spending $3500 or total Whole thing with all the misc. parts.


Kyler, let me know how it turns out. Hoping to see that thing put down 350whp or so! Gonna have to take me for a ride after you get it all broke in.

I go to Surgeline they do great work but they are normally booked a month out. I know they were doing a pronation get a ap and get a free protune. Pretty good deal. Have no idea if it is still going on though.
I know they charge 2k for a new short block and I did Wisco drop ins and it ran me like 3k all together I think.

I'll call them and get a quote, Most shops are quoting me over double that if they do everything. I would just like to drop my motor off, then pick it up all assembled at a reasonable price and reinstall it myself. Thanks for the recommendation.

You talking a long block? I did the heads myself I can see the extra price if you want it fully done. I don't trust my car to any other place making 410 whp and 395 tq with a rotated 30r did the speed density tune car runs so smooth now and frees you up to run a vta valve if you like, like a tial with no side effects since your no longer MAF based tuned. Hopefully one of these days some of us from Yakima will make it Down for a meet.

So, did you assemble the everything other than the short block? If so, I might be bugging you over the next couple months with questions.

Ya it's pretty easy. Just get a shop Manuel. Only tricky part is tq down the studs in the heads which isn't hard and tq ing down your valve covers. Really all you need is a food tq wrench. Things I would recommend when your down there is new oil pick up, oil pump, new water pump, tensioner, and idler pillows. On extra thing that's not that important but a good idea is replace the crank pully as well. Oh and timing belt.

And Surgeline is awesome they know there ****. Lance was traind by Tim baily. The guy that built all the ap maps for subarus.

Surgeline is def. the best of the best outside of WA that is close-by..

The only other recommendation I would have is PIA.. they are in Tacoma, WA. Basically sister shops to surgeline and they would be a bit cheaper. Better work in my opinion that Surgeline too.

Talk to Mike/Steve/Dave and tell them I sent ya, they will help you out.
