  1. Came across this beauty today...Subaru SVX, but a Japanese import.
    3.2 six cylinder boxer engine.
    It should go in to the noisy cupboard of a Late Bay, shouldn't it?[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    EDIT :- apart from the weird window thing - great frontal profile :thumbsup:

  5. Make a great promotional vehicle...it is said that the engine had so much torque that Subaru didn't have a manual gearbox man enough for the job ( at the time)..
    even the auto box failed at about 60k miles.

  6. The question is, will 231bhp and 228 ft pounds of torque be enough ?

  7. I would say no, it's never enough. You can get similar from a turboed 1600 air cooled if you dare run the boost.

  8. Yeah, but how long for :confused:?
     
  9. Isn't it double the HP for each 10psi boost? 30psi boost - bingo. 20 psi would be good enough tbh 50-100-200. :)
     
  10. I thought it was a bit more than 10 to double, but either way I am always amazed at what you can make these old engines achieve.
     
  11. They were in German aeroplanes once, weren’t they?

  12. Rotax aero engines look very similar. Because the VW engine is what they began with.

    Imagine it in a bus

  14. Thanks.
     
  15. So, similar mpg to what i get now, only i have a burbley 6 cylinder motor, way more horsepower than i need and massive increase in torque.. sounds lovely. where do i sign? :)
     
  16. I reckon you should get one matt just to prove it can be done in a bay (I'll help you out by taking the 2.5 off your hands..)
