Has anyone with and MY02 WRX experienced piston slap? I have an MY01 is Australia and I seem to have a loud knocking from passenger cylinder bank when cold (maybe 30% of time) and disappears when warm.

Another MY02 owner here has the same prob and his car is in with dealer being investigated (owner recorded sound like I plan to do).

Subaru had problems with 1998 1999 WRX's here due to skirtless heads. But would be interested in hearing from any US owners with similiar noises.

Does that mean we have interference heads? Ie if the timing belt snaps, we are screwed?
