At this point I'm considering buying a cheap, likely high mileage fa20 to swap in solely for the recall work to be checked off, then swapping my forged/turbo setup back in afterwards.


I could have sworn there was a post here a while back with a member claiming that he had a 2015+ FA20 swapped in, and the dealer waived the recall. I'll have to try to search for it.
Information above ^.

Recall was done. So far I've done 3k miles and also a track day. Seems like it's doing ok.

What specific information are you looking for on an update?

My mistake, I meant to reply to speedls92 since he hasn't gotten the recall done. I'll PM him.

Hi - Im going to wait until the renewal notice comes in and I will go to the DMV with the "statement of facts" and see if they will take it, the link to the form is below, likely section G needs to be filled/explained.


https://www.dmv.ca.gov/portal/wcm/co...=AJPERES&CVID=




I also was thinking that I could by-pass the DMV and try a 3rd party registration service and see how that goes.



My renewal notice will likely be here in the next month and ill keep you all posted.

Same scenario here... 2016 motor in my 2013. You will need to do the following to clear the DMV recall block. Make sure you have a receipt of engine replacement, or go to a dealer who can confirm the motor is not 2013 by inspection. Once you have written proof, call Subaru corporate and state you need them to approve your local dealer to fill out and sign the ORANGE proof of correction form. This form is your ticket to renew your car. I had to email the Vin from the car, engine, and receipt of the install to only get a typed corporate letter. Subaru corporate doesn't even know about this ORANGE form, so stress you need them to approve the signing of the form at the local dealer of your choosing. Take the form and your renewal with you to dmv, and pay in person.

I'm not familiar with this process (and need to research this). So doing all this allowed you to register your MY 2013 car in CA without the recall having been performed?

Only if you don't have a 2013 engine in it, it looks like to me.

If this helps anyone's peace of mind. I have done two track days with the recall work and I have put in over 4000 miles. Nothing has gone kaboom.

So you need to Orange form plus the paperwork on the swap to show DMV?

Hi everyone



Another update on my situation . *** GOT MY VERPOC ***

I just decided to make an appointment at a different dealership than the one i initially spoke to. A few days before my appointment I called and asked for the Service Dept Manager and explained the situation to him.

He told me to defer the appointment until he could speak to Toyota Corporate.

He called me back the same day and suggested I bring it in the following week, just ask for him.

When i arrived that morning, he took me over to a service advisor and explained that we will be confirming that the engine (2015) was not subject to recall, if it was needed, they were going to do the recall on the 2015 engine (Nice surprise that they would do that). If it was confirmed that the new engine is not subject to the recall they would clear the recall "flag" on the car. All this was free of charge.

When I went to pick up the car, they said the engine is not subject to the recall, and gave me the VERPOC.

Now they also said that they still want Toyota to remove the recall "flag" from the VIN so that registration would not be impacted for future years. ( Im still following up on this, but for now i'm out of the woods. I have made copies of my VerPOC for added evidence if this comes up again).



On another note- A third party registration service might give you a sticker, the system wont block it, but the DMV renewal does ask for PROOF. Depends on the registration service is my guess.






**UPDATE** - Just checked the NHTSA Recall site and it looks like the VIN shows 0 outstanding recalls. Seems like Toyota did the right thing for me! Thanks Toyota!
