So Im excited to get a 1991 Legacy L Sedan 4 Door.

Has the EJ22

130k miles and immaculate interior


I was reading reviews to find some info on them and parts etc..
About 3-4 people said that because it was a V6, it was super fast, but still gas efficient..

How close to real is that?
Is it really a V6 (when I hear that I think of my SUV or a muscle car)
How good is the MPG?

My first improvement/mod (after fixing bumper) is to put an STI exhaust on it, yet Ive heard this is a lot harder than Ill be expecting it to be...

The ej22 is a flat four, i have no idea where you got your information. Gas milage is about 23 mpg with lots of variety depending on who you talk to.

It's known as an "H4".

The term "V6" both indicates the layout and the number of cylinders. 6 cylinder in a "V" orientation - 3 on each bank with (typically) about a 60 degree offset. As opposed to an "H" orientation which is a 180 degree layout, or an "I" (inline) orientation which has all 6 cylinders on the same bank.

Subaru has/does make H6's - the ER27, EG33, EZ30, and I beleive there is a more recent one used in the Tribeca. These are 6 cylinder engines with a LOT more power ranging from 165 for the old ER27 to 250+ for the newer one's like the EZ30, etc.

Other manufacturers use/have used the H layout. Notably VW and Porsche, but also BMW and some Honda motorcyle engines are of a similar layout to lower the center of gravity of the bike. Honda also used a lot of V4 engines in their bikes - just for comparison. But Subaru is not in any way unique in their use of H layout engines in cars - in fact they ripped off the design (actually bought it) off of Lloyd - a German car maker from the 50's and early 60's. The first Subaru engine was a light redesign of the Lloyd Arabella engine and was 1100cc
