STI motor
how much HP can it make normaly aspserated if you put in flat top pistons instead of dished pistons

not to be a dick but who cares build the engine and slap a huge turbo on it. if i were to guess i would say about 210 ish at the crank but that's just a guess kinda hard to put a number on it when they're all turbo charged.

how about cubic inch?
and rpm with good stuff in it?

i dont know the dimensions of the newer stuff but the older ea series engines had a 92mm bore for 1.6 and 1.8 ea71, ea81 and ea82. basically the difference was in the stroke.

you could take the pistons from an spfi ea82 9.5:1 compression and put them in an ea71 block and yeaild a little better than 10:1 compression.

the 6 cyl er27 had the same bore and stroke as the ea82 but 2 more cylinders

the eg33 SVXmotor has a compression of 10:1 and i'm sure it would have the same bore as the modern ej engines, since subarus always remain consistent in design.

here's what the wikipedia says:


The EG engine was a direct replacement for the ER found in the Subaru XT sports car. Replacing it was the Subaru Alcyone SVX so Subaru needed a new engine. As with the ER27, Subaru took the EJ22 and stretched it two cylinders to make the new EG33. However, this four valve per cylinder engine was DOHC and used many valvetrain parts from the not yet released EJ25D.

* EG33: 3318cc DOHC, 230hp@5400 used in the 1992-1997 Subaru Alcyone SVX

[edit] EZ

Instead of stretching their current EJ20 as most might suspect, in 2000 Subaru did this family from the ground up. It is a totally new DOHC design using dual timing chains and coil-on-plug ignition. Nothing from these engines are interchangeable with any other Subaru engine as in the past. The EZ36 was introduced in 2008 to help the Tribeca's sluggish performance. It is a bored and stroked version of the EZ30.

* EZ30: 2999.6cc DOHC, 212-250hp found in 2000+ Subaru Outback H6, Legacy 3.0R, and Subaru Tribeca
* EZ36: 3564.3cc DOHC, 256@6000rpm 247lb-ft@4400rpm found in the 2008 Subaru Tribeca

im new to this wrx motor, i assume 2.5 is the bigest block you can get, are all 2.5 stock blocks the same? im looking for a stock 2.5 long block

Not to be ugly but my wife's old Jeep had a flat 4 2.5.... don't know if it was a long block or not.

You can get a 3.0L motor, but it is a H6 although it is only slightly longer than the H4. A 2.5 is the biggest stock 4 cylinder from subaru, but there are storker kits that go all the way to 2.8L which is pretty big. They are the same in bore and stroke, but he thrust bearing is located in a different main on the earlier motors.

No.Not all 2.5L Subaru long blocks are the same.
