You can't just give up on an EA81T - you (being a subaru mechanic) MUST fix it. It's too rare to just throw out.

I bought that Wagon, and he is going to deliver it directly to me. But if you need any parts you are welcome to them.
I find that if I take a break from a vehicle, it always helps. (Kind of putting it in time-out til it can be good)
If all else fails, let me know before you scrape it, or sell it.

I know about putting a car into time out till it can get worked on. The only problem with that is that my Brat (the Gen I) has been in long term storage for over a year now cause the motor is blown in it.
The car is drivable, in the sense that I can move it around on the street so that it doesn't get tagged as a derilect vehicle. But as far actually getting anywhere in it, not going to happen, I took it about half a mile up the street and back, and blew through almost 2 quarts of oil. Plus it's getting progressivly worse, not wanting to idle, if I touch the gas it will die, unless I punch it, then it studders and starts to move, but it doesn't really accelerate untill it starts boosting, then it takes off like an NA car at part throttle, not like a Turbo car at full throttle.
I don't know what I'm going to do, I'm really am at my wits end.

IE: intake valve not opening at right time, causing oil to be pulled past the rings.
Or the cam lobes have rounded off, giving you the same results. But to have two lobes go at the same time would be way far fetched, as far as the odds go.
If HG's are good, and valve seals are good, Turbo isn't leaking oil, PCV system isn't at fault, and the Modulator valve on the trans isn't at fault, the piston rings aren't at fault. Doesn't leave to much more to be at fault.
Just some thoughts on it.
