I don't recall saying that the years I quoted were only USA models. And STi did existed then, actually until back to 1987, they just were not called STi then, it also isn't a company, it is a branch of Subaru. I just went out an looked at my Legacy Turbo engine, the only thing cast into the engine is EJ22, but on the timing cover it has the word 'TURBO' under SUBARU. Since all my Subaru data points to the Legacy Turbo engine being an EJ22G, I will continue to call it that until someone can give me photographic proof of something else. You can call it what you want, but to the best of my knowledge, the only 'T' engines in Subaru histeory were teh EA81T and the EA82T.
you were saying ej22g models (actually ej22t) and they didnt exist until 91.
I didnt say anything about the casting. All the blocks are only case with teh first 4 digits of the engine code. Go look at the placard in a legacy turbo engine bay like I said before, or read the thread I just linked to that shows people reading their placard and indisputable evidence that the EJ22G and EJ22T blocks are different (yes someone disassembled a 22b motor. G doesn't mean closed deck, G means DOHC MPFI Turbo, like matt said that you didnt read. So explain to me how a usdm 91-94 legacy turbo engine can have the engine code EJ22G?
And can you PLEASE answer my question about anyone having problems with oil and coolant mixing?
WJM what matt monson said was true.
