Default Valves are Bent... Options??

Ok, if you followed my previous thread, or not, my Vibration Damper came apart, and the result was my timing belt skipped about 10 degrees. I opened up the timing area and just re-alligned everything, the engine would not start, guessing there is valve damage.


What are my options? I want to know, how likely are the valves seats damaged too? How about the pistons? Do they ever suffer damage from valve contact? I don't want to be into $2000.00 of engine disassembly and find I need to get new heads too.

I want to know if Valves bent are the only probable issue.

I have ordered a Perrin Aftermarket Crank Pulley. I have read they vibrate the engine, is this true? I will never use a stock damper again. This was a perfect running engine, and really makes me wonder if Subaru will continue to be my favorite car. This is my third one, but this should not have happened, and teh factory should make amends.

I really dread taking this to Subaru to do the work. I would like to do the work myself, but no garage and winter is almost here.

Does Subaru warrenty the engine after such a repair, and how many miles is the warrenty?
