Flames welcome I deserve it for what I did. I blew up my 2014 sti looking to see what or who people recommend to do a build or if I should looking to get it done quick and in Houston. Rod knock pretty sure the dealer will want to void my warranty. Need to keep it cheap as possible

Go to the dealer. If you have a warranty they should cover it. So long as you didn't do mods on it that would void your warranty like a retard

Anybody have any advice ? Should I just take it to the dealer or is there somewhere else I could get a better deal and maybe a better build ?

Dealer is going to turn you down. I don't know much about Houston for tuners, but I would start searching for a builder/tuner

Does it do any good to throw the stock parts back on there before taking it in? I guess they're going to check the ECU.

What caused it? Did you just beat the hell out of it, you really dont have much done to cause to motor to blow? Try the dealer first, worst thing they can do is say no.

Thinking I will take it to the dealer but might talk to someone at engine logistics and see what they say. I was thinking about taking the mods off but any mechanic would know that they had been fooled with just looking at the bolts and then they would just think i was been dishonest and trying to dupe them. As for what happened is I didn't have time to do the oil change so my wife to it to a shady ass place and I think they didn't top it off so ran low on oil .......shouldn't have let anyone else change my oil !

This is what insurance is for. Have them get the lawyers involved.

Good luck getting the oil change place to replace your 6k motor due to a completely unprovable suspicion.

You could try being honest and take it to a dealership. Obviously they'll know you modded but some dealerships are mod friendly, most are not.

If you can't revert the ECU back to stock don't even bother.
There is the off chance that a tech might be able to tell you swapped parts, but more than anything this would be fraud. Not quite as bad as trying it for an insurance pay out, but still not the best idea especially when disclosed on the interwebs.
Dealers can't void a warranty claim on mods alone unless they can link the mods as the cause of failure. Since we don't really know what happened to your car we can't advise much either way. My guess would be that with those mods, unless you had a killer tune, they could be the cause of a dead motor.

Also, it may not be the fault of the oil change place. I have similar mods to yours and burned more than a quart per oil change before I switched to T6.

Ill tell u rite now be honest, the dealers know that the engines suck and all about the tuning, they might have you pay a deductible and will be a one shot deal....my 2012 wrx spun a rod bearing and i paid 500 deductible its also since i had oil issues and transmission issues and i had a catted dp, ap mufflerless cbe, cobb ap(which they see no matter if its cleared or not), bov, short ram air intake, so pretty much voided but since i always tell them when somethings up and my mom and i bought a couple vehicles there they knew me and gave me a one time fix.....wish you luck and just be honest to the dealer!

Get a lawyer, sue the place civilly, call the BBB and see if they can help at all.
Most likely you signed off on a waiver that gave permission to do the work, but it's worth a try.
