So subaru calls me today (finally) after 1 day 10hours and 42minutes of waiting...dont ask......

they tell me that they have to rip up the front of the engine because the oil leak is coming from inside the cams......there charging me $385 to open it up and i dont know how much to repair but im so bummed, i gotta come up with that money and $150 more for tuning coming up in 4days.....

big bummer, i will not be playing so much anymore after this....

:( :sadwave:

ya thats prolly a valve cover or a cam seal leak

the pics below represents where those leaks come from, where it is circled if its under the circled part its the valve cover or cam seal

put your hand under there and check for oily!

did u take all your mods off before you went to the dealer?
no i dont have to........there cool with me but if its inside the engine they gotta charge me.........it wouldnt help if i reverted to stock anyways cause i already have a flag on me for being modded......so they couldnt do anything if they tried
