Get 'em while they are here! the EJ257 Shortblock engine... and sorry for the Caps Lock, I copied this information over from our Ebay listing If you have any questions please email us directly or call. (Email- heubergerparts@gmail.com or 800-675-2227

NEW IN BOX FROM SUBARU EJ257 2.5 LITER SHORTBLOCK. THIS SHORTBLOCK IS STANDARD ON 2002-2006 US MARKET STI. THE 2.5 LITER BLOCK MAKES A GREAT UPGRADE FOR WRX MODELS. THE US STI BLOCK FEATURES A SEMI-CLOSED DECK FOR INCREASED STRENGTH, THIS MOTOR IS PHYSICALLY A BOLT IN FOR ALL US MARKET WRX AND STI MODELS. WRXS WILL REQUIRE ECU TUNING, BIGGER INJECTORS, ETC. THIS IS NOT A COMPLETE MOTOR IT IS FULLY ASSEMBLED BOTTOM END,WHICH CONSISTS OF A BLOCK, CRANK, RODS AND PISTONS ONLY, YOU WILL NEED TO REUSE OR REPLACE CYLINDER HEADS. THE OEM 2.OL WRX HEADS WILL BOLT ON FOR THE 2006 AND EARLIER 2.5 BLCOK BUT THERE WILL BE A BUMP IN COMPRESSION.

200$ cheaper isn't too bad of a deal, but 100$ shipping negates that. Tht price shipped would sell more



Just sayin'

TC - $200 cheaper, less $100 for shipping is still a savings of $100, and I don't know anyone that wouldn't take that.

Is there a difference in the ej257 blocks from 2002-2006 and post 2006?

I actually don't know. And our Parts team doesn't unpack the engines, they stay in box until shipped.

The '08 and above have nitrate crank shafts.

If you have more questions let us know! Thanks, Matt.

I need one of these since my crank is bent and would rather have a fresh bottom end to match my rebuilt heads. Would it be easier to buy through you here or on ebay?
