It really has paid off to work at Subaru!

New OE Sti pistons for $58/ea. I know I should go after market forged but with how volatile my set up is, I can't imagine it would be worth it. Got the matching ring set as well. Interesting thing to note, subaru does not offer main/rod bearings any larger than .25. they have .03, .05, and .25. Another interesting thing to note, the 253, 255, and 257 all share the same mains and rod bearings.

So anyhow, this motor will also sport ACL Race bearings. Hoping to have it turn key by the new year like I was almost able to do last year.

You'll have to look it up on urban dictionary George, haha! I'm too light of a sleeper, won't work!

Got sent for some training and was given an '18 Impreza Sport for the trip. I was heavily thinking about getting a Forester Sport for myself as well, buutttt... this thing got 37mpg. The Forester's best so far has been 26. I'm not a fan of the hatch, I'd get a sedan. in silver of course!


I think the shop lost my number as they haven't called me about any thing, I've had to stop in. Nice thing is that it is just around the corner from my shop. I'm hoping when I stop in on Monday that I'll be able to take a block home. If that's the case I should be right on schedule for a new years start!
