Sucks about already needing a new motor. Hopefully you knew that when you bought it.

Anyway, welcome!

Welcome! What happened to the motor? Its pretty tough to completely destroy a motor. Im glad its getting fixed.

Still love my 4 rings, but now all I see is stars.

thanx man. Yes everything is going as plan, the motor is at Subaru and they will be done with it by the 6th or 7th. Then i will take some pics of it with my work emotions on. But for those of you who dont know, I purchased the car with the agreement that VW would pay for Subaru to put a new motor and turbo on the car. So I signed the deal, Im getting a new clutch out of the deal too. the reason I went to an sti is I needed a 4 door and Im not gonna do any real mods to the car so i wanted the one that was better outta of the factory.... Yeah they wanted me to drive the car on the bad motor for while ### they didnt wanna thromw the money out.....but now they got no choice....and they lost 5k on the deal.
