One of my vehicles is a Suzuki Samurai. The engine is going to need replacement soon. Since I am a Subaru fan, I was thinking about a 4 or 6 cyl in the Suzuki. Perhaps a 4 will be fine. Anybody tried it ???
I am really interested.
I have a Samurai also and thought about this at one time. I know you'd have trouble trying to fit an opposing cyl. engine between the frame rails. I thought about an EA81 or EA82, took a few measurements and abandoned the idea. The valve covers would stick through the fender wells.

Not sure if that would be an upgrade though.:-\

i really dont know the layout of the 'zuk that well, but i know the vehicle abstractly, and from the outside, very VERY well... but would it be possible to cram it over the rear axle?
also, you might consider an older, OHV ea-81 engine because of the shorter height... would that fit where the OHC motors wouldnt?
just a couple thoughts. i like that idea :- )

Stick a ER27 in the back facing backwards, flip the axles to reverse drive... Would be fun.
They already lack weight in the front for hill climbs - would be hopeless off road like this.... unless you added some ballast up front...
