Default TopSpeed SS1 block??

Well my 2011 WRX spun a rod bearing and now looking in to doing a short block swap. I've heard Good thing about TopSpeed and was just seeing if anyone has there SS1 block and how's it holding up power wise. I don't plan on going more than 400-420hp on the block.

Reputable guys, I would give them a call and speak with them about it. I have dealt with them on many things over the years and never did me wrong.

Oh man, I'm really sorry to hear that!

Our SS1 block is exactly what you're looking for that will safely and reliably handle that power range. We've built and sold hundreds of these that are still on the road today.

Please don't hesitate to email or call with any questions you may have, we'd love to help you out with this!

mike and mark are awesome guys. I have their rr.5 block with 10k and we're still running strong.

just make sure, when you go, you specify EXACTLY what you want, and kinda poke the fire. It's a busy shop and they're all human.
