Len Evansic Posted October 27, 2004 Share Posted October 27, 2004 So in an effort to research engines, I couldn't fail to notice the Subaru conversions. Eggenfellner and Crossflow offer engines that they have 'modified', but both are cryptic in describing what they've done, besides the PSRU's. Does anyone out there know what is required? I am having trouble discerning what they do to span the difference between their prices (~$22-28,000 US) and the ~$850 that a JDM Subaru engine costs on ebay. I know the ECU and the related auto-specific stuff (O2 sensors) have to be worked around, but what modifications to a Subaru block or heads is necessary? As an aside, how much does a four cylinder 2.0 - 2.5 L weigh? The other posts I saw here focused on a bigger cowl on a Velocity. I've seen many Subaru engines, and know that they are certainly no bigger than a Lycoming. I've seen Al Wick's page, as well as Phil Johnson's. Is anyone else building or flying with a Subaru engine? -- Len Quote -- Len Evansic, Cozy Mk. IV Plans #1283 Do you need a Flightline Chair, or other embroidered aviation accessory?
