    Subaru knock?

    Is this due to ringland failure from running lean?

      I'm pretty certain it spun a rod bearing but I'm not an expert. I'm still in the process of pulling the engine out so I'll find out for sure what happened once it's on a stand. I drained the oil and there were a bunch of tiny shiny particles on the magnet I ran through the oil, but there wasn't any noticeable amount of oil missing. I sent the datalog to Eric at Torqued Performance who is doing my tuning and he said the engine was running great during the datalog.

        Did it just fire up like this one day? Or did it happen while driving?
        Was this right after installing your downpipe too?

          It happened during data logging for my new tune @jordisonjr

          I had just finished putting the new clutch and downpipe in the day before.

                It does look like it was running pretty well.

                That sucks man, Good luck with the build.

                It scares me a little that these motors just decide to eat themselves almost at random sometimes.

                      Pulled this sucker out today with the help of my dad. Now to take the heads off and see if they're ok. I've got my fingers crossed. Thanks to @EH2_Abe for letting me borrow his engine stand. Stay tuned for more pictures in the coming days!

                          Well I got some bad news. I'll let the pictures do the talking.

                            Put my new short block together yesterday and ordered new dual AVCS heads with Cams. Slowly making progress to getting her back on the road. Huge shoutout to Nish whom I can't tag because of his funny name on here. He supplied me with everything I needed and has been a huge help through all of this. Thanks boddy!

                            This block features the following:

                            100mm Forged Manley Pistons
                            Forged Eagle Rods
                            ACL Race Main Bearings
                            OEM Subaru Crankshaft

                            Hope it serves me as well as the old one did.

                                  Well today went pretty well and pretty terrible.

                                  Got the new engine in the car yesterday and finished hooking everything up for the first start up today. She ran great for about a minute before I heard a loud squeeeaaak and it died. When I crank it by hand there's a clicking noise coming from one of the new heads.

                                  Time to rip the engine out again and see what broke. Pretty sure I won't be at Spring Awakening.
