If the #2 is based on productivity, he's the second to LAST guy I'd want working on my car.
    Dude, you're going to get a kick out of this. I can't believe it. So I'm posting this same story over at AWDpirates which is my local Colorado WRX forum, and guess who chimes in? The Master Tech who was the final guy to work on my car and put my new short block in! Can you believe it. And to make things even more funny, I guess Subaru DOES have national competitions, and he did place in the top 5 for the US. Check this: First Subaru U.S. National Technician Competition The dude's name is Bret Carter.
    Crazy small world huh?

    Actually there are national technician competitions held, where the techs are given tasks to say diagnose a problem and fix it in a certain amout of time, etc. We had one of the highest ranked techs (might have been the overall winner, actually) at the Jag dealer I worked at a few years ago.

    So the SM could have been blowing smoke, or he could have been legitimately referring to something like this.

    EDIT, whoops, looks like I was beat to the punch. I fail to see what is funny about this though
