USAA replaced the engine in my 2016 FRS at a USAA gold star facility. This is the engine that replaced it.

From what I understand, USAA will replace an engine with one that has less mileage AND is the same or newer year. So this may be a problem. I have some more research to do and LOT more phone calls ��

I'd be really upset if they put an older engine in my car when you know they revised it because those 13-14s had issues.

How is USAA treating you so far? I used to have their insurance, had to use it once when I got hit in a parking lot.

Why is your insurance replacing the engine? From a crash or something?

Thatís great news! Iím still curious why insurance is replacing it though. Do they provide some sort of coverage for blown engines or was it an auto accident?

I got caught on a flooded street, hydrolocked the engine.

USAA has been good, they get on claims very fast. This problem was a dealership that failed to do their due diligence and look up the block number and check the age of the engine. Hell when I first LOOKED at the engine I knew it was older than a 16. I am not going live with a 13 engine that is known to be a problem. Esp. since the same facility that said it was a 16 also claims the engine only has 38k on it- I don't believe them.

I wish that this was a 16 engine because this engine is great. The fuel trims are spot on, AFR is great, oil pressure is better than the old engine and the butt dyno says it has more power. But I know a main bearing in there is lurking... waiting to spin.

I hydro locked my old Integra and State Farm didnít do shit for me. Happened on a holiday weekend so the adjuster didnít look at it for days and by the time they showed up it was starting and running. But it ran for about 1 year before it was drinking oil. I tore it down and you could see the indentation in the cylinder walls where the water was puddled. I bored it to the service limit and put oversized pistons in it but even then you could see the water damage and after a few year it was drinking oil again.

Consider yourself lucky that they are helping you.

It happened just before Memorial Day and it was 4 days before I got my rental. But I didn't complain, everyone wants the weekend off.

There was no saving the engine. The block had 2 new windows! The rods didn't make a bid for freedom but they punched 2 big holes in the top of the block. The heads were tested at the dealership and those were damaged too, so new long block for me. There are no 2016 used engines with 42k or less anywhere to be found so I'm getting a crate 2017 engine.

OTOH I'm glad to get the new revision engine but OTOH It's going to be put in a 2016 car which hasn't been done by this dealership (if anywhere at all) and it's not exactly a 1:1 fit (the manual engine anyway) so I hope they can handle it. It's more than just the intake manifold and header that are different, I understand the wiring harness is different too.

Is the 17 auto engine exactly the same as the 2016?

Must be something about Memorial weekend. Thatís the holiday I was referring to when I hydro locked my Integra. Hahaha. When I locked mine I was on an on ramp which dipped down before going back up. I had no where to go. As soon as I noticed it was getting too deep I killed the ignition. I get out in my dress clothes and pushed it back down the ramp. Fun times. But it saved the engine for the most part. I wish I towed in home and pulled the plug and blew the water out rather than try to go the insurance route. It probably would have turned out fine.
