Dealer will more than likely deny the warranty claim they will probably look at it and ask you "you spin a bearing?" All is not lost, buy an assembled short block, oil cooler, oil pump. Swap your heads and accessories over to that and drop your engine back.

That is the cheapest fix outside finding a complete used/salvaged running longblock and simply swapping accessories.

Thats loud knock.

Its entirely possible that the destroyed bearing has scored everything in the top end too.

There is a good chance he's going to need a longblock.

I hope the dealership sees this attempted warranty fraud. There are 9million threads on here about how M1 spins bearings. Lesson learned. Next time research then buy.

It can't stand up to the heat and fuel contamination of the boxer motor.

I know for me, before I knew better, I went with what the factory fill was. When I bought my evo 8, it says mobil 1 on the oil cap. So of course that is all I used. I am almost positive that there are other very high end cars that use mobil 1 from the factory. Not sure if that is some marketing scheme between mobil and the automakers or what, but subarus just do not like mobil 1. Porsche always used mobil 1 from the factory, so that part is a bit confusing considering the boxer engine.

Yeah I hear ya on the M1 for EVOs, but the boxer motor is no where near the same as the 4G63 lol.

I would assume nothing is wrong with using Subaru 5w-30, that is until you switch to synthetic...

Haha this is true. Miss the reliability of that motor. You had to really try to blow that beast up lol. There is so much oil debate for subys that I don't even know what to think any more. I just keep on with the 5w 40 T6 and 3000 miles changes. Probably a bit overkill but gives me some peace of mind.. Some

If you read the fine print, it isnt even synthetic. Its dino oil.

The problem is that it sheers and thins out almost immediately, blows right past your piston rings, and dissappears in a very short period of time, leaving your motor with little to no oil, and poor oil at that, to lubricate the motor.

I rock the T6 at 3k intervals as well. Been into cars for a long time and 3k was the number I grew up with. When I had my TSX though I would go 4500~, cause I was lazy lol then again a non high performance NA is easier maintaining BY FAR.

Yeah, I wanted to get an Evo, but everyone wanted 25-30k for their 2003 EVO8 with STOCK clutch when I was looking

Only ones that are under 20k have major problems, high mileage, and branded title of some sort.

Haha my last car was a 07 tsx, after the evo and before the suby! I missed the torque. I bought the evo brand new with 9 miles on her. 32k out the door. Ill always miss that car. The handling was like sex, anyways, yeah mobil1 sucks lol
