How so? You can make 450whp reliably with just forged pistons. Theres no need to waste money on forged rods or other unnecessary parts.

Ahhhh no. You need more supporting mods than just pistons. Do research before posting please. I am on my phone or I would educate you. Hoping Scotty or Unabomber sees this.

I'm not an idiot. I'm only refering to what he needs done to his shortblock that more than likely has a blown ringland. I never said you don't need supporting mods. And tuzzio that's untrue. Me and my buddy built one. Had 20,000 miles with probably 15,000 miles of 24 psi pulls. Tuned it to 550whp to push it and finally bent a stock rod. You all can bash my recommendations but what I said is proven. It may say I'm a newbie but that's far from the truth.

You can't call people idiots if they wanna push things to the limit. Wanted to see what the stock rods would really handle. Sorry for not giving a **** and wanting to go fast.

You realize he's not JUST talking about you, right?
And pushing a stock part to the "limit" and not giving a crap is just a bad excuse for being an idiot.

Thats all well and fine if your definition of realiable is less then 30K miles. The average person would like to make a car last longer then that.

There's a lot of people that get 60,000 out of 500+who. That's pretty Damn reliable in my book. Your never gunna get 100,000 out of a built motor like that if your racing it and thats what built motors are for.

+1 for leakdown test, that should give you a pretty good idea of where to start looking.

Not sure if it's an issue on these cars per se, but nobody has mentioned the possibility of it being a bad valve stem seal... Does any one plug come out much darker or oil coated than the others, or are they generally all the same?

New sb time!

I have the same symptoms. Oil consumption, no smoke, perfect compression test. I've already been preparing for this ringland so its going for a tear down at IAG with a new 20gxtr.

I suggest you call the shops around your area and come with a budget in mind. It's def a ringland IMO.

On the upside, Maryland has some really good suby shops.

how does a bad PCV valve cause oil consumption? I'm not disagreeing that it does im just trying to get an explanation of what causes it..

My thinking is that if it gets sludged up and stuck open, oil would be drawn from out of the crankcase and cause oil consumption and buildup within the intake tract. Is that right or am I way off base??

It's always good to exhaust every option before jumping into a new block but its not gonna be the pcv at that consumption rate. It's just wishful thinking. Be prepared for a new block, your gonna need it

yeah..that too...it can get stuck closed and cause too much crank case pressure and cause oil burning

Default 2005 Legacy GT eats oil...

My car eats oil like crazy and it gets dirty fast. Two quarts for every 1400 miles.

I really need to find a reasonably priced mechanic that will perform a tune-up for me here in the St. Louis metro - I am hoping that fixes the dirty oil problem!!! When I say resonable I mean someone that's an enthusist that knows how to do the tune-up, etc. I am despirate to get this done this month because my tags are due and the check engine light is on - arg. HELP...

I get my oil changes at JiffyLube and they have free top off's. I estimate that they are paying me for oil changes at this point!!!
