EJ255 D25 CYLINDER HEAD PROBLEM.

Hi guys am building my 2.5 EJ255 Hawkeye wrx cylinder heads in which most of the exhaust valves were burnt due to no gaps between the shim less buckets and the cams.

I bought this car a few months back and due to a busy workshop am working on it in my spare time. I have already done the left hand cylinder head.

But after striping the other side down noticed some scoring on the inlet Cam and bore nearby where the cam seal goes.

The cam wasnít seized engine was still running but obviously not picking up revs due to burnt valves.

I have got another post going on this which am updating as i go along.

I break Subaruís but got no cylinder heads in stock for this model i can get the cylinder head polished and change the cam which i donít think i can get from anywhere and i donít really want to cut corners on the job.

So please in need of the Right Hand cylinder head complete or at least with the cams. Its EJ255 ENGINE WITH D25 HEAD.

Is there any where you lads can point me to a breaker or has any one on the forum got 1 to sell.

All help is greatly appreciated in advance.

It's not normally hard to find heads for scoobs especially wrx ones. Plenty of engine failures on the 2.5. I suggest a good search on scoobynet or eBay
