All components engineered & manufactured by Crawford Performance have been tested for ultimate performance and maximum dependability on and off the race track. Our rigorous testing and numerous accolades assure our clientele that we at Crawford Performance demand the best of ourselves and the products we create. Our clients deserve nothing less.

Just because it’s the most affordable Crawford short block in the "S" series doesn’t mean that this engine can’t pack a punch. This block was designed for those of you who have upgraded your power just past the point of the stock engines capabilities, and plan to keep it there. The S2 is engineered around a new EJ257 semi closed deck block that incorporates a counter-weighted and balanced 79mm forged STi crankshaft, forged STi rods and Crawford Performance designed JE 99.5mm offset forged pistons. Incorporated into the block are high performance STi main and rod bearings and STi piston rings. These Genuine STi components allow for maximum safety and reliability.. because why fix what's not broken? No cheap knock off parts here. The CrawfordSPEC forged pistons in our S2 are designed around the stock components, with a design that has not changed since we got our hands on the first USDM STi released in 2004. They feature CrawfordSPEC offset wrist pins to decrease the piston noise associated with forged pistons.

*There are too many factors in a performance build to put an exact number to this motor's horsepower and torque potential, so we give each of our motors a "Rated Output" number. We have seen the S2 withstand up to 400whp/500bhp. But no worries, if this isn't enough to satisfy that itch for more power, than check out our other Short Blocks built to last with numbers as high as 800bhp. 

The final compression ratio of this motor is 8.2 to 1. Final compression is based off a USDM STi MY2004-2007 with genuine STi parts.
