Catastrophic Engine Failure After Recall Work?

Hmm...

"Jalopnik has received a bunch of tips about Scion FR-S and Subaru BRZ engines failing after being taken in for a valve spring recall. Yes, you read that right: The cars aren’t breaking and being recalled as a result, they’re allegedly being fixed under recall and then, as a result, breaking. Here’s what’s going on according to The Drive, whose author actually experienced the issue."

Too bad there isn't one large thread that combined all the same, rehashed items discussed over and over again.

I bought mine used and it didn't even come with a tongue. I'm trying to bring it back to stock, anyone got a link where I can buy the tongue? Part # or something?

It is a top quality tongue, professionally installed. Nothing wrong with it. I just wanted more fungiform papillae. Taste dip before was awful.
