CCR the only way to go for a 2.5. No head gasket issues. 3 year 35k warranty.Mine runs great after 14k

 

You need to contact CCR directly by phone for a quote but CCR will not warranty a shortblock for 3yr/36K....only 1yr/12k.

This is because too many factors involved with final assembly of the engine come into play.

 

You will also find that the cost savings is not worth it and at times CCR won't even sell a shortblock because of parts availability along with other reasons..at times they have to reserve available parts to be allocated for longblocks.

 

The full longblock is a MUCH better deal as you get triple the warranty, all the new timing belt components, rebuilt and surfaced heads, timing belt plastic, genuine oil filter, metal breather plate for the back of the engine, platinum spark plugs, oil pan, tedious valve adjustment is done, piston slap is virtually if not 100% eliminated, etc along with the time savings compared to assembly yourself. Buying all the parts yourself to do the engine build right will probably meet or exceed the cost CCR charges for it already built and includes a warranty. Its a very expensive engine to build.

 

If you do order a shortblock make sure your cyl heads are absolutely 100 percent flat and if theres any doubt take them to a shop and have them decked flat. Also be sure to order only Genuine Subaru head gaskets and if its a 96-99 DOHC engine make sure they provide you the updated multi layer gaskets.

has the piston slap prob been fix on the ccr engines?

 

It has been fixed on the subaru short blocks. I cant even hear mine run anymore (so they most likely have fixed it on thiers too)
