    Rebuild of my EJ 25

    Here we go!!!

    I got the crank re-ground and got some nice ACL Race rod and main bearings.

    I used my lathe to hold the crank for assembly.



    Rods and bearings waiting for assembly. I used Clevite Bearing Guard. It looks like Strawberry jam!!!




    All nicely torqued up.




    Prepped the main bearings with the jam!!!




    Crank installed!!




    Notice the double-drill in the #3 main. I love having machines!!!

    It's a Subaru engine. EJ is the type and the 25 is for 2.5 ltrs. It puts out 165 hp, 166 foot pounds of torque at 4000 rpm. Redline is at 6250 rpm. All this naturally aspirated. They use them in the Impreza, Legacy and Forester chassis.

    I might say that these engines are like LEGO and are pretty well made.

    Lots of people use the Subaru engines on a Baja buggy. The WRX 2.0 ltr puts out 227 hp and is turbo charged. The STI 2.5 ltr puts out 300 hp and is turbo charged.
