Okay, so last week, I turned on my car and the turbo stoped working. It worked the night before, I drove a buddy home, came home.. woke up and left to go to work.. I turn the car on, let it idol for 5 - 6 mins to warm up, pull out of my parking spot, go up to the stop light and turned right. NO BOOST! WTF? It boosted fine the night before.. no bang, no smoke.. no clunk.. nothing.
Let me fast forward to today.
This past Friday I took my car into Kearny mesa subaru. Checked it in, as its still under warenty.. I left my Injen CAI on, hoping it wouldnt void the warrenty, but would take my chances.. I pull into the drive, pop the hood and the mechanic pokes around under the intercooler, pokes at the waist gate etc, completly ignores the CAI.. sick. Later on that day I get a phone call, they thought it was a bad O/2 sensor, which they replaced. BAM, charged me $100.. ( What about the warrenty? ) she told me it would be charged for everything until they figure out what happened and it was a warrenty issue.
Monday, They call me and tell me they think its an emissions problem, with the " Pre cat", correct me if im wrong, but the pre-cat is the up pipe!? They replaced the up-pipe and told me they would test it. Never heard back from them until Tuesday morning.
Tuesday around 1 O'clock.. They called me and told me that the car isnt boosting, and the contents of the " precat " got sucked into the turbo. They told me they would replace the precat and test it.
Wednesday ( today ) Got a call around 2PM, they replaced the pre-cat, and the car IS boosting a little, possibly 5lbs with boost spikes, it would boost to 11, than fall to 7.. Anyways, they called me about 20 mins ago and told me they took the turbo apart and will have to order a new one from JAPAN. No subaru dealerships cary turbo's in stock in So-Cal. They now quoted me next tuesday. Funny how a " We should have this done in a few hours " can turn into a week and a half.
Anybody else have this happen to them?
