Long Block source for 97 Outback?
Posted 14 March 2004 - 06:23 PM
At this point I ask, what not just throw in a new long block?
The dealer tells me Subaru does not sell their engines as long blocks.
Can anyone point me to a source for Long block configurations of the 2.5L DOHC engine?
Can anyone give me any pointers on how to most inexpensively fix this problem? I'm open to fixing it and selling the car, but not to trying to off loading the car onto some other unfortunate soul, or an unsuspecting dealer.
Thanks for any help you can provide.

Go for a SOHC 2.5, if possible.

What's a "long block"? The above plus heads and valve train?
Does either typically include accessories (A/C, alternator, PS pump)?

The block, Cranks, cams, lifters and Oil Pump Assembly.
Long Blocks include all of that plus pistons, valve train and Heads.

Also, I was told on another forum that aluminum heads can be fragile and could be damaged in shipping. You should be able to package for that right?

Then you just make an adaper to seal it and pressure the heck out of it. This is not rocket science.
