Default Reliablity Of 2.0l heads on a built 2.5l block?

Just as the title says.... I beleive I blew a blew a ring land or the head gasket in my 2.0l. So I'm just gonna buy a Brand new 2.5l block that was built by CBRD.

Just wondering about the reliablity of the two as one?????? I know its been done plenty of times with great results. Just looking for some first hand experiences. It's being put together next week. The hta68 is on the car but has still not been tuned, I'm waiting to get the motor back together.



PS..... Very well aware that I need to watch my trans with a very close eye.

I personally like the setup with a stock headgasket. I ran a 16g, and had GREAT results (stock tmic, 565cc injectors)

I made 260/290 @14lbs.


I highly recommend it.

Check in the built motor discussion - you'll have better luck.

FWIW, my built EJ257 block with EJ207 heads has been running strong with 12K daily driven miles over the past year - all tuned to 22.5psi on pump, and higher (8.8:1) compression. Stock headgaskets are the best choice. Just put it together right and tune it right, and you won't have to worry.
