So I was about to install my head gaskets, and while I was prepping the surface, I noticed some small defects on my block....

Would you still use this block?

I purchased it Brand new from a subaru dealer about a month ago.

See pics;

Looks like to me there are some small knicks/chips in the block

The small dent on the side of the water jacket? Wouldn't have an issue with using that block.

Cheers Stephen! Also contacted Subaru about it, said it shouldn't cause any issues to use as it is.
