ENHANCED SUBARU SHORT BLOCK
Here at Sunwest, we take pride in the Subaru engines that we build. Our engines are built to exceed the quality and performance of one from the factory by addressing the main causes of failure in Subarus: rod and/or rod bearing failure, oil consumption and head gasket failure. We are proactive by taking preventative measures to ensure that our motors outlast any other.

There is a $300 refundable core deposit in addition to the purchase price, that is REQUIRED before item will ship OR you can send us your engine first. Some or all of you deposit will be refunded once your core is returned and inspected.
PLEASE CONFIRM PRODUCTION DATE AND MODEL BEFORE ORDERING TO ENSURE CORRECT FITMENT.
WARNING: To help ensure longevity if you are only purchasing a short block, please watch our YouTube video on how to make sure your heads/cams are properly cleaned and installed. Subaru SOHC camshafts are hollow for oiling, and they must be properly flushed. Failure to do this is the number one killer of new short blocks and WILL NOT be covered under warranty.
