Submitted For Warranty Work (Yes/No): Yes

Reason Given For Denial: Mods

Your Story: Engine started tapping (lifter tap) below a certain RPM on my way home and progressively got worse till the engine died 5 minutes from home. Had the car towed to the dealership and they basically laughed when I asked why it wouldn't be covered. Ended up taking my business elsewhere (non-Subaru shop). There is no way in hell my mod's caused the damage.
First of all, wrong thread...this belongs under Engine and Transmission

Second. You are out of warranty. Whether your mods caused the failure or not, you warranty has expired by mileage. Unless you have an extended warranty, which you did not mention

There is no reason why they should cover this seeing that your warranty is expired.

Did the repairing shop tell youw what exactly happened? Did they tell you how much oil was in the engine? Do you run synthetic oil?
