Never had consumption problems up until when I retired the engine, I would have to reach out to the new owner of the block to find out what he discovered upon tear down but since it wasn't a catastrophic failure, Id say it's more than likely the head bolts and head gasket failing rather than cracked liners or ringlands.

Default 504whp Stock Engine

Been daily driving the car recently and got hit on the driver side by a young girl in her Bmw not paying attention. Oh well, wonít be enjoying the car for a few weeks while I figure out a repair.

But in other news, been chasing down oil leaks and the engine finally appeared drying the bay but Iím going to investigate a possible leaky precision turbo Hotside, apparently the oil seals are an issue and itís finally happened to mine because I have been seeing nice amounts of blue smoke from the tail pipe, oh joy. Which turbo should I go with next??? 800whp capable in mind.

What was your break in procedure? Not saying it's your fault, just curious.

At first suspected piston rings (praying itís not) but break in procedure were 3 oil changes within the first 100 miles, first one after being ran for the first time, second one 50 miles later and another 50 miles after that. Didnít use much of any boost for the first thousand miles, focused on letting the car coast in gear down hills for a high vacuum and taking longer than usual drives like nothing less than 20 minutes at a time to have a proper heat cycle.

Unfortunately, it's always a roll of the dices with aftermarket (rebuilt, built, etc) Subaru short blocks.
