Default Naturally Aspirated Subaru Pulls 7 Seconds In The 1/4!!

About a month ago I went to the NHRA Keystone Nationals near reading PA and saw this 7 second Dragster equiped with a 3.3 litre SVX engine. This naturally aspirated engine was converted to use two 2-Barrell carbuerators and Hi Rise Intake Manifolds.

I spoke with one of the racing team members about what they went through to modify this engine and what kind of power output they were getting.

Not suprisingly he said everything had to be modified. It was bored out and running 13 or 14:1 (I don't remember exactly) compression. Suprisingly he said the stock crank was still in there?!

They estimate it produces 400-500 hp. Unfortunitely is was up against a late model Mustang with a Big Block implanted inside. even with a pretty heft handicap the Mustang caught up and beat it to the line.

That was the meanist sounding Subaru Engine I have ever heard.

I wish I had the camera when it was racing. My uncle took this picture earlier that morning before it raced.

Well I guess that proves the flat 6 can make good power, I have been dreaming of a Legacy wagin with a TecII controlled NA H6.

For one it was a Hi 7 and I was able to witness the fastest pro stock class in history plus a few records shattered.

Prostocks run 6s.

Don't confuse the new H6 with the EJ33 in the SVX. The head design on the new engine is CRAP!

What's wrong with the EZ30 head design? Just curious.

And this automatically translates to bad flow? How many cylinders are exhausting at a given moment, in the engine let alone on one bank of the engine? How is this differant than a header that flows 3 into 1?

Could you be making a snap judgement? Based upon looks?

Unless they are doing some REALLY fancy routing of the channels, the exhaust will travel a different distance from each cylinder and there is no way to compensate for this in the header. So, even though only one cylinder is firing at a time, the different length exhaust channels allow for the exhaust from different cylinders to interfere. I can assure you this head design costs a lot less than independent exhaust ports and the associated header.
