I'm also curious about what parts of the engine are aluminum? and if so, should I be concerned about longevity as opposed to an iron engine? The service guy at my ford dealership told me he doesn't think the heads are alluminum only the block, but I read the contrary on a spec sheet somewhere on the internet..
Thanks.
You don't have a subaru engine - it has a head, not heads.
