Subaru Engine Australia is a division of All-drive-Subaroo (ADS™). ADS™ started as Metro Speed and Sound, (MSS) specialising in performance modifications and rebuilds, owned by Niazi Helou. MSS evolved into a purely mechanical workshop, renamed Metro Mechanical, was quickly outgrew its modest facilities in Lugarno as it became oriented more and more towards Subaru service and repairs. Niazi’s engineering interest was turning towards gearbox and engine remanufacturing, and he had a number of ideas to improve the Subaru OEM products. The result was All Drive Subaroo, which grew rapidly and divided into four divisions: Subaru Engine Australia, Subaru Gearbox Australia, Subaru Parts, and Subaru Service. ADS™ now employs 18 full time staff, in the workshop, factory and admin areas. The company is unique in that everyone working full time at the Peakhurst facility, including those manning the phones, is a fully trained and experienced Auto Tech. For the customer, this means good advice when it’s needed and the right answers.
Subaru Engine Australia provides a wide selection of Subaru turbo and non-turbo model engines at three levels of rebuild, and in five configurations, short, long bare, long dressed and turnkey or “crate” engine. We have up to 50 exchange engines on the shelf ready for despatch daily. Our reconditioned and remanufactured engines incorporate revised pistons, rings and head gaskets to address inherent weaknsses in the factory engines. . Subaru Engine Australia’s motto is research, revise, enhance.
As well as service, repair, and remanufacture we are also Australia’s largest independent Subaru parts supplier with new and used engine parts in stock for all models. So whether you are a DIY mechanic looking to build or repair your own engine or a mechanical workshop looking for competitively priced high quality OEM or after market parts, Subaru Engine Australia has got you covered. We also offer full time technical support from our team of engine specialists to assist you through every stage of your project.
Our trade links have expanded nationally with interstate fitment stations to provide full remove-repair-and refit services to trade customers not confident in carrying out repairs to Subaru cars. Fitting stations are chosen carefully to meet our business objectives and values. If you are a Sydney Metro based business we can provide direct free pickup and delivery service.
For the day-to-day driver we have in stock a range of replacement standard engines on an exchange basis at three build levels, rebuilt, reconditioned and remanufactured. Across the industry there is a wide variety of replacement engines on offer and the quality varies enormously. At ADS we have worked long and hard to develop a remanufacturing technique that produces engines that are of consistent high quality, and that address known weaknesses. The result is a remanufactured engine that is actually superior to the OEM original. We recognise also that customer needs vary, so we also offer two lower levels of engine rebuild that are also of consistent quality. Each level comes with a different warranty depending on the process employed. Subaru Engine Australia’s guarantees are all nationwide.
When comparing our high quality engines and warranties you will find that Subaru Engines Australia is very competitive, especially for our Cosworth performance range. With Cosworth components, and the knowledge and experience of Niazi and his team of specialist engine builders, ADS have produced engines that greatly exceed OEM specifications and will satisfy the demanding driver and the most extreme applications. Whether you’re a professional racing driver, or a keenly competitive enthusiast, our Cosworth engines can give you the edge. We can usually ship one of our high performance Cosworth engines within 5 days. We have four levels of performance engine available
These are much stronger and more reliable than the factory engine, and with the potential to support significant increases in power if desired. The ADS/Cosworth standard stroke Street Tuff engine is suitable for daily drivers who might want a stronger engine for robust reliability, or for an enthusiast who wants to tune his engine. Any performance boost will depend on the size and design of the turbo used, the ECU software configuration, and many other variables.
These are stroked engines with forged internals for increased strength and durability. The longer stroke gives more performance without further modifications, and with the potential to handle much more power. This is the perfect performance engine for customers that want the most on the street and at the track. This is the engine setup you need if you want to extract high RPM and maximum power.
ADS has a large and very busy parts division, which means we have on hand at all times a large range of new engine parts. Because we are also an engine remanufacturing outlet, we also have a large stock of used parts from exchange engines. As well as greater choice than other parts outlets, we also have a team of engine specialists with in-depth knowledge of Subaru engines and peripherals. This means we can diagnose your Subaru’s problem, identify the parts you need and supply them quickly and efficiently. As we are a full-service company, we also offer follow up support and advice, for example, in fitting your new parts or assisting with any problems you might have after installation.
Be wary of dodgy engine shops offering reconditioned Subaru engines. Some don’t even list addresses or phone numbers, making it difficult to make warranty claims. All Drive Subaroo is a reputable, well-established business based on honesty, with Christian focused values and is recommended by many Subaru dealers Australia wide and hundreds of workshops. We’ll ask you the right questions and listen carefully to your needs to ensure you are delivered an engine that you can be proud of at a price that will make you smile!
All our techs have been doing this for a long time, and have been specialist trained. They all take pride in the quality of their work, and love doing what they do. This ensures you will get the best engine human hands can build. All Drive Subaroo doesn’t just sell engines, we also offer technical support and assistance throughout the process and afterwards. Before you commit to an engine, we can talk you though all the available options. Once you’re back on the road, we are ready to assist with any questions you might have about the running and maintenance of your new engine.
Many performance parts suppliers and engine builders around the world sell cheap, inferior products marketed as premium. It’s our aim to make sure that our products are the best available. In production too we aim to be the best. All Drive Subaroo don’t just put engines together like Lego blocks. We’ve carefully thought out all our setups, and spent hundreds of hours of building and testing to produce the optimum in performance potential and durability. Our Cosworth EJ20/25 Engine setups have gone through countless hours of dyno evaluation to determine the best combination of parts.
We offer the best warranty terms in the business. We are able to do this because of the solid ethical principles we operate under, because we use only the highest quality OEM Subaru or aftermarket components, and because we’ve been doing this for a long time, and we are confident our products will not fail. Also, when you drive out with an All Drive Subaroo remanufactured engine, you have not only the best warranty in the business, but the best ongoing technical support. If you have any questions or problems with your Subaru engine, even if they are not related to the quality of the ADS product, we’ll be there to help.
When you need a new engine, there are many choices. There are benefits and risks attached to each option. A used engine is the biggest risk. You might get an engine that is about to fail. With all the costs of purchase and installation, a big risk to take. A rebuilt engine is safer. Defective components are replaced with hand-picked used or new parts, all inspected and tested. A reconditioned engine has major components renewed, and comes with a good warranty. The remanufactured engine contains new and revised parts to produce better-than-new performance and longevity. These come with the best warranty, and virtually no risks.
Some used engine blocks are in good shape and ready for rebuild. Others might have hard-to-see defects that make them unsuitable. ADS choose very carefully which engine blocks can be machined and which are for the bin. All remanufactured non-turbo engines are built with improved brand new redesigned engine cases providing the maximum possible reliability and longevity. All remanufactured engines contain a brand new hardened Subaru crankshaft and brand new connecting rods. All Subaru non-turbo EJ25 engines are built with our own revised multi-layer head gasket for durable sealing and ultimate long life.
