You know, I wish I had a buck for eveytime someone asked this question on the board, and got this answer. Show me where there is a diesel Subaru in Japan, if there is, I'll bet that the engine isn't built by Subaru.

is a diesel Subaru of sorts, but probably not what you were thinking of.

Apparently these small diesel Robin Subaru engines are very quiet:

Here is some real news, though from this article:

http://www.autocarma...sp?na_id=212253

"However, Subaru looks to be taking the European market much more seriously with news that work is underway on a new range of flat-four diesel engines. Subaru has built prototype diesels in the past, but with small European sales it couldn’t justify the significant investment required to produce them. However, its collaboration with Saab has given the project new life and a new urgency. Expect 2.0-litre and 2.2-litre versions of the diesel, which will be fitted to the next-generation of Subaru models as well as Saab’s 9-6X and the second-generation 9-2X, if it’s again based on the Impreza.

Early work on Subaru’s new diesel engine was carried out at Porsche’s Weissach engineering centre in Germany. However, the majority of its development has taken place at Subaru in Japan with additional expertise coming from fellow GM subsidiary Isuzu."

So, there is some kind of Saab-Subaru cooperation going on, and a spiffy new car called the B9X...

EA81-D, FHI put it in forklifts. I think it had about 30hp.

according to the parts manuals at the local repco parts store, '80s soobs were available with nissan diesels. There was even apparently a 4wd version, although i cant think how a straight 4 would fit with the soob 4wd gearbox. Possibly a different gearbox too? Dunno.
