JUN's stuff is notoriously expensive anyhow... I doubt there is anything in there that the rebuilders over here cannot do for you.

I had JUNIII cams in my gsr swapped civic hatchback and let me tell you, you definately get what you pay for properly tuned that car was an animal 12.86@103mph stock bottom end and minimal bolt ons(IM/H/E) with a full interior on slicks yea it was probably a little too much cam for the stock bottom end but with a built bottom end it was quite a bit faster never tracked it sold the motor to someone who put it in a crx that went low 12s. That being said the cams weren't cheap I'll tell you that much. there are the jdm nazis out there that will pay for it b/c its a reputable jdm tuner and they think its so much better than anything built/manufactured here in the states.

Bad decision

Default

I find it interesting that even with their 2.2 L stroker that goes as far as re-enforcing the deck of the block they still choose to use OEM Subaru main bearings. Maybe thats some food for thought for those of us that put together built bottom ends and spend extra money on main bearings from other companies. Apparently we still want aftermarket rod bearings though.

jk of course, but Cosworth is a name that sells...some of their Subaru stuff is other people's repackaged goods (ie: cams, bearings, etc) so that def doesn't equal better IMO.

I'm not putting one builder above any other. My past builds always used local trusted builders I was just trying to understand his reasoning. You could get a kick ass short block from either but I look at it this way:

1. Jun has more experience building and blowing up and rebuilding SUBARU motors

2. If you have a problem with JUN you are SOL unless you live in Japan

3. Cosworth knows a thing or 11ty billion about race engines and they have a local shop in Torrance not far from my locale = big plus.


I call it a draw but some put more stock in a name when its been proven you can get quality short blocks without the rock star name.
