Hi all. New to the site. \ Have an 08, 30K on the odometer. Had uppipe, down pipe, TBE, HKS A/I, and a professional 94 octane tune (on 4WD dyno and computer mapped).
Blew engine (cylinder #1) and now the dealer is sending the entire engine and ECU to head office for further review prior to advising whether warranty will cover or not.
After reading all threads in past on 08 engines failing modded or not, and hoe Subaru of America has dealt with them, not feeling good about my situation.
Mine is one of the recall/ECU reflash models that had the detonation issues.
Now, the mods were all done by a pro shop with one of the only 4 wheel dynos in my neck of the woods, and they told me that prior to my tune, my engine had a knock. They smoothed it out and did a leak down test with nothing showing as being wrong.
This may be an old issue based on some of the threads on this topic, but this just happened to me and I have a feeling I am going to get jacked.
Any input would be appreciated.
