While normally I would agree, if you rewind some you'll see that the 'stop sale' engines were mentioned. These 'stop sale' engines apparently subaru had a number of bad bearings that were installed in production cars. I would imagine that the same batch also made their way into shortblock assemblies and individual bearing packages. In that case, if would be a defect from subaru and not a mechanics fault. On the other hand, if the pan/pump/cooler/sump and other items were not replaced from the previous engine when the new one went in, there is a 100% chance for failure within a very short time, sometimes as 'long' as 10,000 miles before a cam locks up/rod knock develops/main bearing spins. I've seen this personally many many times from independent shops that dont know any better. But, from my time at Top Speed (I used to work there), plus the experience that SS has from being at SOG during many engine fiascoes, plus Doug's experience, there should never be any issues with engines coming in blown up due to oil starvation/bearing failure and then leaving w/out having the proper list of items replaced.
