Finally got my block back..

from the machine shop. Originally had a stripped head bolt hole. According to the machinist the one hole had a bad set of threads and actually said there were no threads to begin with...? They tapped it and put in the new ARP stud...curious.. By the way this was a brand new 2.5 short block from FRED BEANS SUBARU in PA.

That's the real name of the dealer-got the # from a CLUB WRX vendor ad. GREAT deal on the block: 1500$ shipped in three days...too bad it went sour.

wait Dani, is it a 2.5 block meant to be turbo'd? or is it like a 2.5rs style block? cause my friend did a 2.5rs block in his legacy, turbo'd it (he owns licmotorsports.com subaru specialist) and he has problem after problem because of the turbo.. which is probably why people don't turbo 2.5rs's and do a motorswap instead..

This is a stock STI block and I don't know why it was moved-I thought I put it in the'block' forum to begin with. Whatever who knows when this thing will run-still gotta' put on all the mods and take it to the tuners.

Hardly...just a 2.5 w/vf 39, panks, STI IC, cat free 3", header, inlet, Cobb 3, that's it-just enough to keep me happy 'till my Cobb 3 heads are ready and then who knows...
