I'm curious how much your mechanic knows about subarus. We all have some amount of piston slap. If it really is bad, which it probably isn't, just run it until it dies and THEN replace the motor. $1700 seems a touch steep. Are you mechanically enclined? A used junkyard engine can usually be had for several hundred dollars. Do check the tensioner though, or have it looked at, as the newer style ones (your car) can become loose and make a horrible racket. At your mileage its certainly time for a new T-belt and accessories if it hasn't been done already. Good luck!
If it ain't broke, drive it hard so you can do maintenance sooner!
