ADVICE AND GUIDANCE
Are you not sure what you're reading online about your Subaru is true or false?
Contact us by phone or email for advice and guidance on any level Subaru build. There is way too much mis-information out there telling you that you need this and that; we just keep it honest and simple, bust the rumors, and provide you with only the facts.
CUSTOM ESTIMAES AND ORDERS
Want to get all of your upgrades in one place but don't see a certain part on our site?
No matter the brand, we will price match the best price out there and assist with a one-stop shopping experience.
Have an odd application?
We've supplied Subie engines for the oddest of projects: from VW vans to helicopters, and from sand cars to water cars.
Although we do not perform maintenance on street-legal cars, we do offer installation of our components at our Oceanside, California facility. From free installs of our AOS's to engine replacements and rebuilds, we have the techs on staff to take care of you.
ENGINE INSPECTION AND REBUILDS
Has your engine failed and you don't trust your local shop? Maybe considering upgrading your internals and rebuilding at the same time?
Ship us or drop off your crated engine for teardown and inspection. We'll let you know what happened, provide you with options for rebuild, and reassemble.
Does Crawford rebuild short blocks?
Yes and no. It depends on what kind of Subaru engine and how many miles it has. For ultimate reliability, these are your options when you choose Crawford:
- EJ: These blocks have weak points on the cylinder walls. Because of this fact alone, we will not rebuild them. That means that every EJ that leaves our facility is BRAND NEW. No core fee, and no worries.
- FA: These newer blocks come from the factory with vast improvements over the EJ's. Much stronger and resilient to abuse. If your FA engine has less than 10,000 miles, (upon inspection) we will rebuild it.
- Cylinder Heads: It is widely misunderstood that Subaru cylinder heads are not good to re-use or leave stock. In fact, they are basically bullet-proof and if on a turbo application, you can get the same gain as thousands of dollars worth of head work by asking your tuner to simply turn up the boost by 1 pound. Unless you have overheated/warped your heads or ran your blown engine until it ceased, there is a very good chance your heads are perfectly fine. 9 times out of 10, we clean, resurface and re-install.
