    Can you call them and ask, or look yourself? It's very important to know what parts are going on your car. Next time bring them the filter. You can buy them in packs online/ebay.

    Just out of curiosity, how would you justify your oil changes if you did the work yourself? Just showing some receipts for quarts of oil and filters doesn't mean anything. Nothing says you actually used them.

    I'm interested in this because I buy oil by the case and I've got about 3 of them sitting in my garage. Same with filters. I bought a 6-pack months ago. I'm not even sure where the receipts are anymore. But as I said, even if I had the receipts, nothing says I actually DID the oil changes.

    Your receipts and your word. Also I tend to save a quart of the batch of the oil in the engine.

    Some auto companies will do an oil analysis, but that's a bit rare. Most cars have OLM now. WRX is a throwback, and I love it.

    Got a call last night from dealer. They finally got approval from Subaru. Basically getting a whole new engine.

    Can the dealer not actually tell if the ECU has been tuned? I'm having this same issue, however I have a stage 1 tune right now. I plan to revert it back to stock and factory tune before taking it into the dealer and trying to get the rod bearing covered under warranty.

    Yes they can. Just don't give up any information on it. Good luck.

    This is caused because of the UEL header and some oil starvation. Piston #2 and 4 basically get the most heat and that isn't good for the bearings. Mine spun at 42,000. At least your baby is back.

    If they could tell if the ecu was altered then why did they ask?

    To make their life easier. If a cop knows you were serving all over the road drunk, why does he still ask you if you had anything to drink?
