Has any one looked into adapting the ford 2.3 into a Subaru? I run one in One of my VW buggies love it.

sounds like a killer idea, but then you would have a longer motor and radiator clearance issues. you might have hood clearance issues as well. side draft webers would be great, though!

i would like to see that happen:slobber:

There's gotta be just as much aftermarket and performance stuff available for Subaru EJ motors as the ford.

Anythings possible, but why?

The why would be, I have three sitting in my shop. As hard as it was to find a subaru here I can't find an EJ with out driving 6 hours to get one. I love the carbed adaption on the EJ. I plan on lifting the body, So the top would be able to clear. I saw some cars use a transfer case I didn't find any pics of one mounted. can someone post one?

That Ford motor is a racers favorite, and has been for many years. More aftermarket than I can shake a stick at. Even Speedway Motors, etc.

Then there are the Turbo versions...
