FS built ej255 short block
« on: March 11, 2016, 04:00:00 PM »
This block has CP Pistons/ Rings and King main and Rod bearings. Rods are stock. This thing was built by XLR8 in Cohoes NY. They failed to completely seal the case halves during the build resulting in my removing and charging rear seals SIX times. They finally took it back and resealed it. I put it in the seventh time and it still leaked. At this point I ordered a Rallispec block. Upon removal of the engine, I found that the separator plate was the only thing leaking. I had the Rallispec block sitting there, fully built, so I installed that instead.

This was running when removed, however needs the separator plate installed (new plate and hardware included) and a couple helicoils installed for the AC bracket mount. I honestly would not be afraid to put this back in my car if need be.

Looking to get $1000 for it as is. I have the thread inserts to go with it as well. I just don't have the time to mess around with it. Will also entertain reasonable offers.

Block is located 12516, but I'm willing to meet up within reasonable distance (Albany area).

Is it just a bare block? No intake correct?

Block is oem with exception of king bearings and CP pistons. The pistons are Bore (99.75mm);Size (+0.25mm);Compression Ratio (9.0). This has ~4,000 miles. Builder (xlr8)replaced rings and bearings when they resealed the case due to rear seal leak, so those only have ~1kmi.

Yup, too bad someone couldn't get some use out of it. WRX is long gone and have zero intention on ever buying another junkbaru again.
