  1. you know i work in a garge for 6 to 7 years and i done load of head gasket and i never had a bottom end fail on a high end car or a low end car. i seen it so many times when people have forged their cars then the engine fails less than 1,500 miles. i seen something that garages have done to customers car. i seen it all most of the worst work. the main reason why bottom end fail is due to 1) poor maintenance, 2) poor driving, 3) crappy off the shelf remaps. i never had a customer bring their car back with bottom end knocking after doing a head gasket. some subaru garage don't even replace timin
  2. no. i have not picked the car up yet. the garage where it is has been keeping me updated with how it is going. he said before me dropping the car off. he would look into what is wrong with the car as it drives fine but sometime the car might try to over heat. he did say he would check the block to see if that was the problem when i spoke to him before dropping the car. he rang me after doing his check that the block was fine and the bottom end was OK. he said that when i pick the car up he will show me the worn clutch. the car did have a problem with going from 2nd into first. so i will see th
  3. just rang them and no they are not doing the bottom end. he look into the engine before starting the job. he only said the car needed clutch. he said the bottom end is fine.
  4. to tell you the truth i believe so, i will find out when picking up the car. they had the clutch off so i am guessing they did.

  6. Anybody uses PS now just wondering if it is any good? Can you unlocked trophies on there as well? just wondering if it is any good.
  7. do you know what subaru dealer it was registered with? if so you can ask subaru to see if it has any history from being looked after by them. you can always email subaru and see what history they got for it.
  8. i am playing gta san andreas on the ps4. love it.
  9. I don't vape but i do smoke signature blue cigars.
  10. i was going to ask the same question. i see them for sales but don't want to buy something that is rubbish.
  11. here is one from a dealer https://www.adamsbrothers-subaru.co.uk/used/subaru/impreza/impreza-wrx-sti-type-cs400-cosworth/aylesbury/buckinghamshire/19425966/
  12. it is a hard answer to be fair. if that was me. i would walk away with pride. only service history up till 41,000 miles is not a good thing. you need to know if it had an engine work done. if it is a lemon then it going to cost you a lot to repair and 44,000 miles with any service history is going to make it hard to resell.
  13. for the window that is slow, spray wd-40 down the side of the runners and work it up and down till it gets better. spray it a few times till it goes back to normal then clean the window afterwards.
  14. i know what you are saying, i don't have proof that my engine is forged, i believe it has been remapped at one point. If i was going to do a engine build i would of gotten a closed deck. i would of loved to do it myself but don't have tool nor space to do it. slow boy asked me if my car was remapped as i said i don't know as i don't have proof. they said they were going to check and make sure it set up back to the setting it went it with.
  15. i was looking at pp parts list for a rebuild and it don't say about changing pistons or con-rod. this is what they do for a rebuild and to me that ain't going to stop ring land failure.
