02-151-14R tsb scion frs

Has anybody with an FRS had this performed? It comes up as a Subaru TSB, nothing from scion that I can find. It applies to 13my BRZs, and calls for the replacement of the valves, camshafts, and rocker arms (among other things) in the B2 head.

I took my stethoscope to the B2 head to listen for what I thought was the ďsewing machine sound when warmĒ, but all I could hear was the fuel pump.

I run 0-20 M1 with hy-per lube additive, and KN filters.

The car runs excellent, no CEL, and itís generally quiet (as quiet as they come. It is a Subaru after all).

J02 recall was performed in December 2019, and itís been 11k miles since then. I donít think thereís any dirt there.

The TSB is to address a tapping sound...so if your car is running excellent and is quiet. It's not needed.

Well thatís the thing..... itís quiet, but the sound is off. You can hear that the B2 valvetrain is louder. With my clapped out stethoscope, itís hard to pinpoint the location of the sound because the hpfp is so loud.

Iím just trying to figure out if I can go to a Toyota dealership and have the work performed, in the event that it needs it. Otherwise Iím going to start looking into a spare motor so I can have a seamless transition when this one blows up. Lol

It's a Subaru TSB only, and the noise it addresses can be heard with the naked ear, no stethoscope needed.

I suggest you just leave your car alone.
