The Dohc motor also fits Subaru Impreza.
Most Subaru EJ25 Dohc motors we sell have reconditioned Cylinder heads with new valves, valve seals, valve guides / valve stem seals to ensure better performance. We do this because Subaru Heads had a problem with leaking heads.
This engine had the same cylinder head problem. We offer 2 options for this:
for 1999-2001 engines without EGR we offer:
- Japanese EJ20 SOHC replacement : We sell this because this cheaper because actual EJ25 SOHC costs around $1500.
- Actual EJ25 SOHC engine: 90% of the times we sell a Re-manufactured engine unless we have a good used engine.
Subaru EJ20 Sohc engine can't be sold for 2002 & above Subaru Outback, Baja or Subaru Forester models because EJ20 does not have EGR and 2002 up actual EJ25 has EGR valve.
