Jasper Engines & Transmissions announces the availability of its remanufactured Subaru 2.5L boxer engine. This SOHC four-cylinder engine is available on exchange for the following vehicles:
• 1999-2010 Impreza/Forester
• 2000-2009 Outback/Legacy
• 2002-2007 Baja
“This remanufactured JASPER engine offers several advantages,” said Brad Boeglin, JASPER new product development group leader. “We use multi-layer stainless steel design head gaskets, with larger embossments and coated with a rubber-based synthetic material to stop oil leaks. Cylinder heads are installed with NEW torque-to-yield bolts to provide even clamp load and reduce head gasket failure.”
“The pistons are a JASPER-exclusive design that improves cylinder-to-wall clearance and oil drain back capability,” Boeglin said. “The pistons include a graphite coating to help prevent dry startup and piston scuffing.”
“The cylinder block is torque plate honed, a process which eliminates cylinder distortion after the head is bolted and torqued to the block,” he added.
Additional updates include: 100% installation of a new timing belt tensioner, idler pulleys, water pump and belt, which prevents the chance of timing component failure. The engine is also live-run tested with recorded inspections of temperatures, oil pressure, vacuum and compression; assuring reliability and providing piece of mind. A black-light inspection occurs after testing to ensure there are no oil leaks.
The JASPER remanufactured Subaru 2.5L SOHC boxer engine is covered by JASPER’s 3-year/100,000 mile nationwide transferable parts and labor warranty. Full warranty disclosure is available on our website, or upon request.
