On my way home to day I heard a load bang then I say the smoke our the rear of the car. I thought for sure that it was the Trans. When I got it home the Tow Truck drive told me that it didn't smell like Trans fluid. He was right it was motor oil. The drain plug fell out and I may have thrown a rod. I was doing about 80 at the time of the noise. I am going to look at it more tomorrow.
Later

A rod? I thought these darn motors were bullet proof. That sucks.

Yes the motors are bulletproof. He was able to drive a full 2 miles with no oil in the engine before it gave up.

Who was the last person to change your oil? Oil plugs don't just "fall out".

Have you considered doing an engine swap with a WRX now?

Why would you want a smaller less hp & torque making engine in a car that weighs approx. 500 lbs more

3hp less, 7(?) foot pounds less torque, but lighter, and unlike my favorite engine, the EG33, has significant aftermarket backing.

Probably easier to find than a flat-6?

The EG33 is my favorite engine, given the choice between it and a turbo-4 I would take the 6 every day and twice on Sunday.

In think the SVX would be slow with that engine it may be lighter but with low compression and pretty bad lag before 3k RPM. I couldn't imagine that engine moving a SVX down the road

I have to agree somewhat, at cruising speed you probably would not notice it as much, but from near/at stop, when the the largest change in velocity/ greatest acceleration occurs, the lag is gonna hurt. The flat six pulls strong from just above idle all the way up till past the 6KRPM mark. Imagine if you had to get the engine up to 3K before it would even start moving the car!

You could get away with it if you had a stick.
