I see talk of EA this and EJ that.  I'm assuming these are the Trans or Engine types of the particular vehicles in discussion. 

 

Does anyone have a complete list with matching years and models (or at least OEM installation)?

 

What is under my stock 2008 Legacy Outback 2.5i 5MT?

 

My transmission is labeled: TY758VCABA-GA (which is about the only ID I could find on it.)

EA, EJ, EG, FA, FB are engine types.

 

You have an EJ25 engine. Im not sure of the specific code on that year.

EJ is the engine series

25 is displacement.

There are numbers afterwards to indicate other features of the engine.

EJ251,-253,-257, etc.

 

Transmission is just a 5MT.

 

There is a wikipedia page with lots of info about Subaru engines and transmissions.

2008 outback would most likely be ej253 SOHC. If its DOHC, it would be ej254.

1st    3.454
2nd    2.062
3rd    1.448
4th    1.088
5th    0.780

Thank you for the detailed breakdown.  So it's 4th gear that is closest to my 'direct' drive-line huh?  I was always told it was 3rd.

Np! Glad I could help. :)

 

Yep, its the closest to the transfer ratio of 1:1, but there is still the reduction in the front and rear differentials.
