in our shop at smart service subaru, we came across a customer that wanted a HG job done on their forester. in doing the hg's we found that there was a small amount of blow by on the number two cyliner. In removing the cylinder we found that it was one thousandths of an inch out of spec, whic is a very small margine. well, with our liability issues, we opted to replace the engine, instead of replacing the piston rings as we had wanted, and we have now, a reasonably good engine on our shoop floor. Today we got word back from the customer that they no longer wanted to keep the engine. So on its way to the scrap pile, i grabbed hold of it. so i am now in possesion of the engine.

The engine:
EJ-25 Pase 2 2.5
Out of spec on 3 of 4 cylinders by exactly .001"
blowby on piston 2

It's just the short block, no head or anything else. pistons included

If you are in the seattle area, contact me, and we will work out a deal, if you are a ways away, its up to you to get it from me.

Take this thing off my hands!
