Sheepyhollow's 14' Subaru WRX Hatchback Build Thread
About three weeks ago, I decided to do a datalog just to run some tests. Car is running fine, get into Third Gear, start the datalog, go to redline.. stop the log and the car seems fine. I turn around, drive about a mile, and the check engine light comes on, flashing cruise control light, oil light is on, the whole nine. Run the code, i get P0011, P0021, which if you're familiar with this code, it's usual a blown motor. With 6 months left on my warranty, I figured I would take my chances and see if they will cover it. Of course, they didn't and quoted me $10,000 for a new Short Block with possibilities of needing new left and right heads.
Knowing I cannot afford $10,000 out of pocket, I decided, it was time to just go with a Build. I went up to my local tuner shop, talked to the tuner there for sometime, and decided to get a new 2.5 Block. STi Forged Crankshaft, STi Forged Rods, topped off with Manley Pistons. The motor is rated to hold 500AWHP.
