IAG Stage 2 Short Block
The IAG Stage 2 Short Block is designed for modified EJ25 Subaru's that need a beefed up performance short block. The IAG Stage 2 short block builds off the Stage 1's strengths by adding ACL Race bearings and Brian Crower Sportsman H-Beam forged connecting rods. The upgraded rods and bearings are able to support additional engine load produced by larger turbochargers that the OEM STI rods cannot support reliably. Each IAG Stage 2 Short Block starts with new Subaru 2.5L 99.5mm stock bore EJ25 engine case halves as standard. The short block is measured and assembled using a new 2017+ Subaru 2.5L nitride treated STI crankshaft that is matched to ACL or King race main bearings. Brian Crower Sportsman H-Beam rods and ARP2000 rod bolts are utilized along with ACL or King race rod bearings. The case halves are sealed with new OEM main case bolts and sealant. Finally, Manley 99.5mm Platinum Series Forged Pistons are spec'd and installed finishing off the short block.
The IAG Stage 2 Short Block has a power output rating of 650BHP.

Optional Shipping Methods:
Red Carpet Service - IAG Pelican Case (Recommended):
Red Carpet Service / IAG Pelican Cases are a premium shipping option offered by IAG. Your IAG short block is shipped via a returnable polypropylene military grade IAG Pelican case, which provides optimal protection while in transit. Please contact an IAG sales associate at (410)-840-3555 within 2 business days of your purchase to provide credit card confirmation and approval for Pelican shipping - further details and logistics are explained in our Post Sale PDF document, which can be found below. The IAG Pelican case must simply be returned to IAG within 7 days of the receipt of your engine and carries no additional cost vs. cardboard box shipping. If the case is not returned in the required timeline, a core charge of $399 is placed on your card.
Blocks can alternatively be sent in a standard cardboard box, but bear a greater risk of damage in transit. While cost is the same, we suggest a Pelican case that ensures safe transit.
