2.5L's are junk. proof inside

This is the 2nd motor build this week. This car came to us with the thought that a rod bearing went. We immediately thought "oil pickup".


guess what..... #4 completely ate itself. there are no pieces of the piston anywhere... all that is floating around is pieces of the rings. The entire engine is whooped, the oil pan looked like someone filled it with anti-seeze. This car had very very minor mods, TBE and AP. Thats it! And only 30k on it. I'll stick with my 2L ;)

That's horrible looking, I'm quite suprised to see that. Was this because of bad A/Fs or just a crappy short block.... It doesn't look like it was running that lean.

crappy piston design with poor fuel system design. This thing was modded ever so gently and it still went.

Chaos- Chris' fozzy is a freak of nature.. and so is he :P


Ray- 257. From what Im told it was a very conservative protune. if you want more info pm me.

Same thing with another customers 257 that blew #4. was tuned well and #4 let go.

We are unsure what route we are going with this one, waiting on the customer

who said the two STi's that are here were driven like retards? Its a typical #4 failure. Just more and more are showing their ugly little heads.
The pistons are brittle little pieces of cast ****. Simple as that. they are junk

The suby 2.0 has so much development behind it and is so damn smooth. Yeah, it lacks torque, but there is a reason why the STis in japan don't need a 2.5 to keep up with evos...
