    It can be a boxer or an inline 4 but not both. It happens to be a boxer. Check out "piston slap" with the search function and a number of threads should come up. Although our cars do have piston slap, it's not a general boxer characteristic. It's more a characteristic of our cars. Some users with earlier STi models had shortblocks replaced only to have the issue re-appear.

    it sounds like the loud lifters might be another one of the noises you are hearing - subies ALL have loud lifters; its the design of the engine, just like most of their head gaskets leak a little bit of oil. nothings perfect, but they still last forever
