  1. Also here's a log from April 2017 after I had it tuned for 95 fuel. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1hqwZVpIjc25eiV-KmM8Lb6ikHwxpOEjG/view?usp=sharing
  2. Here's some pictures of the engine https://drive.google.com/file/d/1WX_tSGqM6GVtLin1mQ-bBPFWHA_APeGj/view?usp=sharing https://drive.google.com/file/d/11gP-tK_yd-DC5WP1Tfv7M9Hlw6v3SMwv/view?usp=sharing https://drive.google.com/file/d/1jCZcOIaVEEKSzoYUSMgGZ5fQPH2z6KII/view?usp=sharing The debris inside the bore was not there when the head was removed! It just from a dirty shop rag
  3. Yip that was the last log before the engine let go. Like I said previously the tuner looked over the log and couldn’t see anything dodgy. I have no reason to doubt his word. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Hopefully this works https://drive.google.com/file/d/1ku-RVYtIO-ZquFECTK5GTVnBsBr36X0H/view?usp=drivesdk Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Hmmm I can paste the image link into the URL box but when I hit "Insert Into Post" nothing happens.
  6. I've got the log to post up but having trouble inserting the images. It's hosted on Flickr
  7. I'm not going to name names here at the moment. I've used them before and was very happy with their professionalism and actual results. Yes it was an e-tune. I have the log of the last run that ended in tears. I've spoken to two different places that have said the short block isn't available. Mine is the EJ207 W20C. The new short blocks I've found are the S20C version. If you are sure the W20C short block is available please tell me where to buy it! I'm not after an engine with heaps of power, I thought a downpipe and fuel pump isn't over the top.
  8. Thanks for the quick response guys. As for the engine, it's done 127,000km. Oil changed every 7000km. Valvoline Synpower 5w-40. Genuine oil filter. Yes checked regularly. In fact I checked it the day before. It didn't use oil (I hardly ever needed to top it up before the next change). Oil always looked good when drained. I'm the first NZ owner and had it tuned for 95 when I got it. Running Ecutek fine for 3 years then decided to do fuel pump, catless PBMS downpipe and Grimmspeed EBCS recently. Did the bearing while doing a logging pull for the tuner. He's looked over the logs and can't see anything in the tune that would cause it. I have no reason to doubt him either. I think the age/ k's of the engine plus a redline run in third gear probably didn't help the health of the engine. Had another 1500k's before next oil change. I've never tracked the car, just did 1 quarter mile event at local car club. Was a total of 4 runs. I absolutely baby this thing, it's only got close to redline while doing pulls for the tuner! Apparently new replacement short blocks are not available from Subaru.
  9. So my beloved JDM GRB has done a big end bearing. Looks like time for a rebuild. This is totally way over my head so I need to find a shop to do the work. Does anyone know where in the Hawke's Bay that could take this on? I've been talking to PBMS. They have been really helpful but the distance is a problem with the rebuild. The engine is out of the car and with my mechanic so I'm thinking I could take it somewhere to be rebuilt. The last resort would be shipping to someone else in the country. Any suggestions is appreciated.
