Sorry you're having back luck with your XT and dealing with DCH ... I live a bit east of you in PS and have had nothing but mostly good luck with PS Subaru here...

Question on the manifold issue and the noise...

I've had a sound like a ping or knock for a while now - usually happens between 2200 RPM and 3500 RPM on acceleration. The service writer, manger and "master tech" have all heard the noise but I've been told "it's a normal engine sound" ... Oh, so not a normal sound. I'm used to the rougher engine noise from the flat four layout, but pinging? Nope.

So what manifold is it that they think is causing the issue - the exhaust, the intake or something specific to the turbo? And what's the contact you have for SoA SoCal? I may need to / want to talk to them.
