Question Brian Crower - Anyone running their products?

http://www.briancrower.com/

I spoke to them at length yesterday. Don't know of anyone using their parts personally but the Crower name is pretty reputable in other circles. Need to get my 02' bugeye back on the road.

For the same price I can either go with a STi complete motor swap (turbo, intercooler, ecu) or build out one of the 3 - EJ20 blocks I've had laying around the house for like 2 years. Also have a set of heads I can port. Car will strictly be used on track, NASA events, open road races, AutoX, etc...

Thoughts?

STi swap

or

Brian Crower / or other built motor
Cams - Stage 2 Street/Strip Specification
VALVE SPRING/RETAINER KIT
STAINLESS STEEL VALVES (Complete Set)
SUBARU EJ205 2.29L STROKER KIT
ACL Race Bearings

If you're going to build a track motor, do it with something a little stronger than an EJ205. This is something I'd ask of the Built Motor forum. I've been browsing throught there myself trying to learn some stuff. Easiest thing to do is an STi short block, upgrade the pistons and rods, throw on your WRX heads and go have fun.

most cams push the power band into the higher rpm range. This is fine for a track car, but not really what you want for an autocross car. I have a feeling the OP will do more track than auto-x though.

That is correct, AutoX will just be for fun. Will mainly be a road racing application.
