Subaru Third Generation Boxer engine
« on: September 23, 2010, 06:55:24 PM »
Love the front on look of it.



Boxer lovers, the next chapter in your love affair has just begun. Fuji Heavy Industries, parent company of Subaru,
has introduced the latest, third-generation boxer engine that will relieve the second-gen after 21 years of service.
This is a brand new lump, not a rework, and FHI has built a factory just to produce it.

The bore and stroke have been increased, and it will be available with four cylinders in 2.0- and 2.5-liter displacements.
The intake ports have been redesigned, lighter pistons and connecting rods offer reduced internal friction,
and separate cooling circuitry for the block and the head are some of the changes that have resulted in a lower emissions
and a ten percent increase in fuel efficiency. No power figures are being quoted yet, so we'll have to see how it measures
up when it finds its way into production engine bays.

Nice,

I wonder will there be many issues sticking one of these into a classic or newage. Or will it be like the new diesel, its just a no go for the older models without a major rework

Wonder will it pass for the lower tax now with reduced emissions  :headbanging:
If you fail to prepair then prepair to fail.

How is bore and stroke increased, but still 2.0 or 2.5 sizes?
Fair play for them making the effort though,
