IAG Trojan Subaru EJ25 Closed Deck Short Block
The IAG Trojan Short Block starts with brand new Subaru 2.5L engine case halves.
IAG machines the case halves assembled together in our Haas VF-4SS CNC mill to accept the IAG CLOSED Deck Inserts that transform the block into a solid deck.
The unique inserts feature small passages that allow needed coolant flow to the deck surface. The case halves are CNC machined with O-ring receiver grooves around the bore surface as well as drilled and tapped to accept 1/2" head studs that greatly reduce head gasket failure during high cylinder pressure scenarios.
Next, the short block is Deck Plate bored and honed to 99.75mm in our in-house Sunnen SV-30 the most advanced automotive cylinder hone available.
IAG‘s in-house honing process is able to set custom piston to wall clearances to best fit your needs.
The modified case halves are then assembled using a new 2017+ Subaru 2.5L nitride treated STI crankshaft that is matched to ACL or King race main bearings. IAG-Spec Tuff H-Beam connecting rods and ARP 625+ rod bolts are utilized along with ACL or King race rod bearings.
The case halves are sealed with new OEM main/case bolts and sealant. Finally, IAG-Spec 99.75mm JE FSR 2618 Forged Pistons and electroless nickel plated tops and ring area as well as upgraded .250" / .906" H13 wrist pins are added to finish the Trojan short block.
- Additionally, all IAG-Spec piston skirts utilize the JE Perfect Skirt coating.
