Ok. So to clarify with everyone
I got the Tech dept to admit to a problem
They said that there is now counter-cleaning measures put in place by Fuji since Sept 2008. What this means is that there WAS a problem with contamination in the oil. That problem has since been resolved. For all July and August build dates, you are sitting on a ticking timebomb. Sept I was still be wary. BUT WAIT! Didn't I have a second motor put in, that was supposed to correct this problem? The answer is yes, only logic is that my second motor was produced before Sept 08.

What Subaru of America offered to do FOR ME.
They gave me 3 options.
1. Buy my car back
2. Put me into another 2009 exact same specs, made after Sept 08
3. Put a new long block in and reimburse me for my inconvenience.

My thoughts are I kinda would like to switch to an 08 STI, but I had modified my car with Tint, HIDs and a Nav system. Nav I can take out, but Tint I can't.
