Default CP Forged Pistons for your EJ257

We have the latest design from Crawford Performance and CP pistons for your EJ257.

They are a stock replacement maintaining the dish volume and dish shape of the OEM part. They also have the OEM valve reliefs.

They weigh 399 Grams as opposed to 418 Grams of the OEM part.

The cost is $495 shipped.


All shipping prices are in the USA.


Thanks,
Quirt Crawford

not trying to be rude but if you already have it apart you might as will get it balanced and save yourself the hassle of wondering" what if i did this"will it run better....
just my opinion.. Steve

Well, it's like this.

Because the Subaru is a "flat" four cylinder motor with the throws of the crankshaft phased 180 deg. apart. The difference in the weight between the OEM piston and mine has no effect on the balance of the crankshaft.

The balance of the reciprocating components is achieved by equalizing them to the lightest weight component.

Good question though

If your short block is new, you can use the OEM rings.

If you are in the need for a new set, they are an extra charge

Thanks,

Quirts pistons are better designed for the EJ257 specifically. The old piston design was just a WRX dish, nothing special when compared to the new offering. He has a picture on his website.

But how does that compare to the CP's that Ron & Axis sells.. as they are also custom for the EJ257 and sell for the same price... I am just trying to see the difference in competing products.

Sorry to be so late getting back

As Mike said,
The dish design in the pistons that I sell for the STI are engineered for the STI engine package.

The square dish pistons are engineered for a high compression 2.5L WRX headed motor package.

The round dish pistons are engeneered for a normal compression
2.4L to 2.8L WRX headed motor package.

I hope that this info helps. If not, ask away!


Thanks,

Yes, there are actually several sets in stock. I believe that they are going for $535 shipped. You will have to confirm with Crawford, of course.
On another note: If they do not have the ones you specifically require then Crawford can surely design any other piston that would suit your power needs. All you have to do is ask

Don't let the cat out the bag, yet. I was on the verge of selling my car, but I had a change of heart.

You already know what I want as a graduation present.

BUMP for Quirt and a great deal!

Sorry to be so late getting back with you. I have been at the Pikes Peak hill climb for a week.
