let me guess, you like that big domestic kick in the pants and resembles a mountain peak...not too different from most EJ257's

I blame your ctsv

and that EZ30R will probably leave you upset then...

Great engine choice. The flat torque and awesome throttle response should make this a real fun car to drive. Why not 3.9 final drive?

I thought this image was relevant. Here is the dyno of a 99 Outback with a ton of miles



That is an incredible torque "curve" and its why NA Subarus feel so nice. At the same time my DOHC Vtec Del Sol feels like a pig at low rpms...

Did a bit today to work off Xmas dinner.

Fitted the T400. Had to trim the original gearbox xmember mount to clear the box but fits fine otherwise.





Made a crossmember that clamps to the chassis rails.



Crush tubes welded into the chassis rail.



Finished the engine Xmember.

You should shoehorn a Subaru flat12 in, just to be cool =]

I bet it sounds "interesting" at 13k rpm

HO-LEE CRAP! that's a bad ass piece of running gear! I'm with the others on this board, I didn't even know that this engine existed. is there aftermarket support? or does it all need to be custom built?

IIRC that was subarus attempt at an F1 engine. theres probably less in existance than you could count on one hand and seeing how hard it is to fit an EG33 or any of the normal flat 6's into an impreza, an engine twice the size would be nearly impossible. that thing looks like its 5 or 6 feet long!

Anyone have any clips of the subaru flat 12 running?

3.5 liter flat 12 w/650hp sounds like a maintenance pig haha. Definitely not the kind of engine that should be mass produced. It's also not nearly 2 x the size of the EG33.

A bit more work done between Xmas activities.

Wastegates mounted. Passenger side turbo is all mounted and plumbed ready to go. Drivers side is a bit trickier due to the oil filter housing.







Rear underside.



Front underside.



Overhead view.



Bandwidth fail. Hopefully it resets tomorrow.

Just a bit of fiddling around today. Had to make an adaptor to fit a different oil filter as the original filter was enormous and fouled on the compressor cover.

I turned up some bits in the lathe and then tigged them together to rduce the thread on one end from 30mm to 24mm.







Awaiting exhaust parts to get that welded up tomorrow.
