Subaru, are a Japanese car company, it is the automotive division of Fuji Heavy Industries Co., Ltd. Subaru car engines are obtainable at as used, reconditioned or secondhand and come with a 100% guaranteed.

A 10-digit engine code is used by Subaru: the first 2 characters identify the engine series. The 3rd & 4th identify displacement volume in liters. The 5th digit is a sub-series identifier and fuel system flag. The 6th digit identifies emissions regulations it conforms to, while the 7th digit shows the intended transmission it was mated with. The final 3 digits are minor production change codes.

The Subaru EJ engine is a series of automotive engines. The engine was designed by Masayuki Kodama, Takemasa Yamada and Shuji Sawafuji of FHI Ltd. Engines of this series are 16 valve flat-4 horizontal, with configurations available for SOHC and DOHC, natural aspiration and turbocharged.

The Subaru EA engine is a series of automobile internal combustion engines. All EA series engines are of a flat-4 design. The EA series engines has aluminum heads with aluminum blocks. Each cyinder has two valves, one for exhaust and one for intake. They came in either an OHV pushrod or SOHC configuration.

Subaru are to Introduce a Boxer Diesel in Geneva

Subaru will introduce a 4-cylinder horizontally-opposed (boxer) turbo diesel engine at the Geneva International Motor Show May 2007. This is not only its first diesel, but the first boxer turbo diesel. Subaru had announced at the 2006 Paris motor show that development of the turbo diesel was almost complete.

Due for its first vehicle application early next year, the Subaru boxer turbo diesel is a highly rigid unit with low levels of noise and vibration.
This eliminates the need for a balancer shaft which counters uneven combustion pressures and general roughness. Subaru’s first diesel is as compact as its gasoline units and combines unusually strong pulling power at low engine speeds with high-rev throttle-response.

Subaru’s Horizontally-Opposed Engines are what make the whole drivetrain layout possible. The key to this flat engine configuration is that its opposing pistons effectively balance out each others’ vibrations.

Compared with In-line or V-type engines, this gives smooth, seamless, fluent power delivery right through the rev range. (Once again, symmetry is the secret). Even more important, the design is shorter and shallower than other engines, which means we can make ours more compact, lightweight and very rigid.

In turn, this lets us fit the engine way down in the chassis, to give that very low centre of gravity. Both In-line and V-type plants have advantages and disadvantages. But the built-in benefits of the ‘Boxer’ engine have proved to Subaru (and Subaru owners) that this is the one true way to harness performance and ally it with remarkable drivability.

Whatever the road,whatever the conditions, whatever the challenges, we firmly believe that this is the route to genuine all-round refinement.
That’s why every single Subaru car has a Boxer engine and a linear drivetrain.

Subaru past models were:
360, 1000, Alcyone XT, Alcyone SVX, Baja, BRAT, FF-1 G, FF-1 Star, Justy, Libero, Leone, R-2, Rex, Traviq, Vivio.
