Default What does the EJ mean with our engines

What does the 'EJ' stand for in EJ22 and EJ25? I know the 22 and 25 stand for 2.2ltr and 2.5ltr but I never knew what the E and J stood for. Anyone?

Question

Europe/Japan? I know it doesn't mesh well with the other engine model combos, but it's all I can think of.

It really doesn't have to mean anything that would make any sense to any of us. It could just be a designation of the variation of engine that worked in developement. I don't think it's like SS=super sport or anything.

"what does Butch mean?"
"it doesn't mean anything honey, I'm American."


anyhoo, it's the engine family designation and nothing more. the older flat fours were EA series, I can't recall what the SVX motor was and the new H6 is an EZ series.

The SVX engine was/is called the EG33.

The EJ is just the engine family code. At least thats what the techs at the Subaru dealership I work at tell me.

the old subaru engines from the 80s were the EA81 and EA82. Don't know if that helps decipher it.

This is what I used to understand it as. But imagine yourself as an engineer (if you aren't one already). Can you imagine a group of engineers sitting around at a meeting trying to decide what the family code or name of a certain engine should be and one of them just popped up and said, "Lets call them the EJ series of engines" and all of them just agreed even though it meant absolutely nothing at all? Nah! It means something!

Whether the EJ is one word or each word means something individually, they are there for a purpose. I know if an engineer in my company said lets call it this for no reason, I'd seriously consider whether we should keep him as an employee. I'm evil though.

Now someone go wake up an engineer out of the Subaru Matrix and find out what the 'true' meaning is.

Engineered for Japan. The EA series was for America and the EG series was for Germany.

Don't be silly Colin. They had to start using the last letter, Engineered for Americanz.
