Never had heard of them, looks like they're based out of Aussieland. Maybe check on the Australian Subaru forums?

Is there a reason you'd prefer one over a Manley billet crank?

Revving to 8k it'll be solid for sure on stock crank

Manley has reformed their ways and their new crankshafts are on point. Give them a second chance I mean you have a 90% chance of getting a good one

^if it is a 90% chance then it is crap. If you are cnc cutting billets to any meaningful precision and doing proper balancing and checking and using uniform billets you shouldn't be sending customers garbage like that. That would be a fail of both manufacturing process and of QC.

The most i've heard of them doing is cross-drilling them.

OEM cranks are stout

0 issues with my Manley crank or the one in CJs car. Both cars produce 1000+whp and get revved to 9K every pass out. Can not be beat for the money. The old original run of the cranks needed re balancing as they were usually out, but if you happened to do the work on it they also worked great.

Stock EJ207 crank is also fine to 10k+ if you balance it. And 700+ wheel. Been doing it for years. :-)

The Manley crank is an excellent option for larger displacement motors and does exceptionally well at high power and high rpm on E85. They just take the punishment and keep going, well worth the money if you are going to rev a 2.5.
