Merry christmas from Kiwi French Automotive
Our Slacks Creek workshop will be closed from COB on Friday 22nd December 2017 and will open for trading as normal on Monday 8th January 2018. Ensure you book in your car service well in advance!  

 

In this case study we're going to walk you through how we did an engine replacement for a Subaru WRX 2L turbo. You'll find photos and videos below and some more on our Facebook page.

 

Day 1

Watch the video below to see and hear what the engine was like before we started. It has a problem with the big end bearings, which are in the bottom of the engine

Day 2

We were very busy in the workshop on day two and didn't get as much done as we would've liked. Here's a quick video showing you the difference between a working turbo (it spins) and one that doesn't work (it doesn't spin).
