I doubt they'll upgrade the pistons while they're fixing it.

It would never hurt to ask, the dealer I got mine from knew full well the car I bought was modified, then returned to stock and traded in before got it. They still gave me a warranty and have fixed a fair amount o it without question.

Ok, so I asked if they would, since the car is being repaird under warranty they cant do something that would void warranty. if the repair wasn't being made under warranty and the car doesn't have warranty left, they would have been more then happy to install them for me.

At least that's a logical explanation, the dealer can't void the warranty because it would leave them liable if anything happened. Which makes no sense because those pistons are stronger and you only have 450 miles left on the warranty.

Subaru would be paying for the repair, not the dealership. So you have to use the parts that Subaru wants you to use.

If they won't it would most likely be due to a warranty issue. I worked at a Toyota dealership and had them rebuild my 3SGTE and had them install a set a JE pistons/rings, no questions asked.

Alright guys, today the final verdict will be set on my car on the major problems BUT!!! the dealer that sold me the car, called subaru and tried twisting everything I was saying to subaru, SUBARU IS PISSED at that dealer, and doing a 100% screening on my car and fixing every little thing that doesn't even have to be fixed even if it isn't under warranty and going to give 100% of the bill to that dealer!! Subaru 1-Fiat 0
Also... Subaru is so mad I talked them into writing me a check for a Cobb AP V3!! so can anyone guess what I am buying right now!!!

Final Verdic!!!
Ok, so here is what's up,
Two cracked pistons, broken rod, stamped block, two valves stuck open, clutch blown out, need new flywheel, needs new throb barring, new spark plugs, turbo shaft play. Pretty much the pre owner raced the hell out of this car, but they can't find anything about having any aftermarket stuff on it?

Sounds like my "pre-owned certified" Genesis. I made it 5 minutes out of the dealership before I got my 1st CEL.

Wow.

Glad Subaru is stepping up to the plate and getting the Fiat dealership to take care of you correctly!

You should run a carfax and see if the prior owner was the star of any "Gymkhana" viral videos
