I finally pulled the short block (SOA478H600R1) that I purchased a couple months ago out of the box and put onto a stand. Changed out the 7mm oil pump for a 9mm that I had (I don't think I'll need a 10mm as I'm a conservative driver, and this is just for a DD project). Looking at the pistons, they're labeled as 255 SH. Is this going to be a problem mounting with DOHC heads? When I was talking with a subaru parts tech over the phone I had specified that I wanted an EJ251 or EJ253 short block for '03-'05, and they had given me the part number. I had then talked with a different Parts Tech, and they confirmed that that part number was for what I had specified. Are the pistons the same? I thought the 255s were used with the AVL systems, and can't work with pre-AVLS. . Should I be looking for new pistons now? The current motor in my car is an EJ from a 2001 Impreza, with DOHC heads. I wanted to recreate the build as it is generally a nice and powerful (enough) motor. Also, I bought a brand new subaru water pump because I thought the stock one that came on the block was supposed to be forward facing.... What showed up is identical to the spare I bought. They are identical, right? Thanks all, Greg
What is the best mpg for the hybrid?
sambog posted a topic in Crosstrek "XV"This is my first Subaru and my first hybrid. The best I had so far was 40 mpg last weekend with 40% freeway and 60% local road. I keep my speed consistent on freeway and almost very flat for 12 miles. My average mileage to work and back home is around 35 mpg. What is the best mpg you had for the Subaru XV hybrid? I am curious if anyone has better luck than myself.
Hybrid Extreme Tire Wear
durangokid posted a topic in Crosstrek "XV"My Hybrid Crosstrek has 19,000 miles and all my tires are going bald already. I do go camping with the dogs in back and some gear. I'm wondering if there is a design flaw with the Crosstrek. Has anyone else had this issue?
