that's a shame.

That's BS.

When I ordered my EJ257 from my local dearler, I had it in a few day's. Call Subaru of America.

It's not like the factory doesn't have any engines.

i will call and find out. its annoying...i drive past the dealer on way to gym, and see it parked there, missing me:(

FIXED:lol:

Damn that's weird for a Dealer to be taking that long on anything.

That's good though, take it back and take it a independent shop that knows Subarus and will not make mistake's and will do it right.

If it's a great shop and they know what they are doing, you don't need a warranty

Try a Tuner shop or a Subaru only type of shop

Last place I'll take it for something that big is the dealer, they want your car out a.s.a.p. What happens when you rush something? You miss and forget something.

Good luck with your car but I would really take it back now and go elsewhere before you owe them $

You don't have to go to the dealer, it's 8 years old

For reference, may be contact Ryan at Fred Beans in the Vendor forum link up top and ask him how long it normally takes.

I think a few day's would be the answer.

Are they buying a long block or short block ?

Did it have a extended Warranty from SOA, or third party? some warranties have a 30 day wait period before you can claim, I waited alot longer then 5 1/2 weeks, but in the end, brand new Long block, turbo, over 8K in parts

im not sure on the warranty, but the total you said is my toal-$8200 to be exact. i am getting anew turbo, longblock, etc....i guess i got my answer. thank you, im happy its a new engine, but the wait sucks...

The dealer should be making your first two payments as you have not used the car yet. Just my .02

You may want to ask them to grease the starter shaft while it's out so it won't hang up like most of them do when its cold out.

Are you having a new clutch put in also or is your car an automatic ?
