it was a pain pulling that airbox out when you have 1 12mm socket and its a deep one. had to use a crescent wrench to tighten the coil pack down.
lets say carter for i know they have every REAL oem part. i was fearing the engine was broken. and carter will give loaners that dont have 160k miles. at awd auto ive argued with the front counter guy about parts before. he said the oem uppipe does not have a flex joint unless we misunderstood each other. they were SUPER helpful chasing down my cobb uppipe leaks. went through 2 pipes and simply cut the shield off the stocker and been fine ever since.
when the first shop installed the uppipe it squeeled and they said turbo bearings. i was like...um. it wasnt like that yesterday.
long story short no one is perfect. id rather let a subaru dealer handle a catastrophe.
the coil pack was completely out of place and was tapping the side making it sound like knock. there are rub marks on the gray casing of coil pack now.
ive idled it and warmed it up a little. normal idle. revs very smooth to 3k.
yes. my crescent wrench usage is not perfect but i have plans for an oil change and will let them tighten it down properly for i do NOT have a short 12mm socket. i figured tight is 1000 percent better than loose or off.
codes are still there but i can clear them when i drive out later.
will let you know if anything else is up. will put a load on it later today.
now this makes me think i dont have bad gas from chevron. possibly was just a bad spark.
