    The price on that engine is way too low, do a quick google search for that company, bad reviews lots of them.

    A replacement shortblock can be purchased from your local Subaru parts department.

    TERRIBLE REVIEWS FROM THAT PLACE! TERRIBLE

    Called up Subaru and they can hook up a new shortblock for 1900 and then a full gasket kit for about 320, sooo pretty much 2250 for a reliable fix. I would imagine though that we would need to get a new water pump, timing belt, etc, RIGHT??? I get the impression that the shortblock is just that, the block, nothing more, no?

    So today we pulled the cam cover to check the timing belt and what do we find, MISSING PARTS!


    Well first off we noticed that a couple bolt holes for the cam cover were broke, no big deal, then i realized there were two bolt holes right by the crank sprocket that had nothing on them...weird. Checked the manual and sure enough the timing belt guide was missing, THEN, i noticed the belt tensioner was leaking and the belt was kind of loose. Upon further inspection, the timing belt was off two teeth from the passenger intake to the crank sprocket...LAME. Anywho, b/c of the potential damage to the heads we have decided to go with a long block versus the subaru short block. The dealership said that long blocks for that year aren't available anymore.

    Looking around I found Colorodo Component Rebuilders, they seem to have a decent price on a rebuilt longblock and from what I have read, a good reputation.


    this was the thread on NASIOC

    Makes more sense than a tired old Japanese engine with no support.

    If you going with a longblock, what about a 2.5l?

    thought about it, buuuuuut it seems like this setup doesn't come with exhaust/intake mani's, turbo, etc. I don't know if it technically is a longblock, buuut i know it doesn't come with an ecu or a wiring harness, both of which i know would be needed to switch to the 2.5

    You would need the ECU, I didnt know the wiring harness was needed. My ECU quit on me after I had my shortblock replaced the used replacement ECU was only $135 (2.0l ECU)

    ^hmmmm, good to know. the 2.5 is obviously more expensive, but rightfully so...
