We are one of the few Subaru engine specialists in N. Wales and have been repairing and modifying them for many years. They have probably now replaced the Cosworths, RS turbos and Gti’s as the most popular high performance saloon cars. The engines do, however, suffer from some common problems including big end bearing failure, piston damage due to detonation and head gasket leakage on earlier models.
We have the facilities and experience to repair or recondition customer’s own engines or supply short or complete exchange units as required. We have many blocks, heads and other used engine components in stock.
There have been many variations to the EJ20 engines over the years and earlier units can easily be improved by substituting later components during rebuilds. For fast road, track day and rally engines, we can use forged pistons, steel conrods and multi layer steel headgaskets. All of our engines use top quality lead/copper bearings.
Our experimental budget road rally, naturally aspirated EJ25 project engine proved very successful, winning on it’s first outing.
