Pretty sure if you look in the owners manuel, no where on it does it state to go stage II and add a bunch of aftermarket parts to your car. When you increase power output you must also add a more robust oil to the mixture that will hold up to the extra stress on engine. Owners manuel goes out the window.

Two big idiotic errors you have made.
1)Using Mobil 1 5W-30 oil on a turboed stage II subie.
2) Starting a thread that discusses your warranty fraud plans

You can't just drop in a shortblock.

1. Either replace or delete the oil cooler

2. Turbo needs to be inspected and/or potentially rebuilt/replaced. 90% of the time after a motor goes, it takes out the turbo as well. The turbo bearings are easily destroyed. I think they are brass or something quite malleable.

3. Cylinder heads need to be completely cleaned out, with all oil gallery plugs removed and brushed out with soap and water. Cleaning up after contamination is a PITA. Also clean the cams and VVT gears. I would send those out to a shop to have them cleaned. make sure they have the alignment tool, otherwise you're just rolling the dice.

4. All oil lines should be cleaned, as well as valve covers etc... anything that can hold the tiny shards of bearing material.

5. Oil pan ... It's not worth using the oil one after a bearing failure. You could pay a shop to ultra sonic clean it, but again ... I'd rather just drop 100$ for peace of mind that my $1500 + investment + time + research doesn't go to waste Speaking from experience... Also might be a good time to replace your oil pickup tube with something a bit sturdier.

6. Clean oil control valve solenoids. Gotta make sure no bearing materials are all up in yo 'ish!

That's all I can think of off the top of my head. I had dirt contamination on my first build, which tore up my bearings. Hope that helps... Don't try to screw the dealership over for your mistake though dude.

The feelz man I spuna bearing in my last sti with mobil 1

So the added protection of 5w40 offsets the longer warm up time?

This thread should come with the purchase of every subie:

Modify your car, modify your oil viscosity. Although no oil can fix the nut behind the wheel.

And there you have it.

This is the reason that those of us with a legitimate warranty claim get put through the wringer if we need to use it.

don't think people would be giving you as hard of time if you didn't blatantly come out and say you were committing warranty fraud..

If the dealership knows what was in there and they STILL warranty it then the DEALERSHIP is the one committing the fraud lol There's some special kind of stupid going on in here.

Pay to play yes, but if you roll the dice and they happen to land on your number then so be it. "It's you guys that screw it up for everybody else!" Oh boo hoo boo boo!! Everyone acts like they have some kind of influence here on someones decisions in life lol!! Those type of comments are futile.

He gambled. He won. Case closed.
