Default What type of Motor in the 2006 FXT?

Does anyone know what type of motor is in the FXT. I'm sure it is EJ25{something}. Thanks.

Yeah it is an EJ-25, but it has a higher output this year than 2005 or 2004 due to some ECU teaking, and something to do with the intake runners. It now makes around 230hp crank in stock form.

I should have waited when I bought the wife's car, but I would have to put up with the tail lights.

actually, the 2004/2005s are faster due to being lighter weight, other than that, they have the same engine :-p

i read the car and driver article yesterday and they also were saying that the 06 XTs are slower than the previous ones. they said that it has something to do with gearing. subaru changed it so that is has better fuel consumption but it hurts performance. at least that's what i read...

Default Performance

The FXT compression ratio is up to 8.4:1. Also they eliminated the pre-turbo cat by developing an air feed system, which feeds air to the exhaust to improve the effectiveness of the post turbo cats. A really brilliant idea. Our FXT suffers from no turbo lag, which is the feature that I appreciate the most, owning a WRX. So the HP is up 20 HP, but the torque number are the same. I also heard that the gearing changes reduced the 0-60 times. But it's pretty darn fast for a box on wheels! I really like the car.

Right now I'm just trying to find a WIX oil filter to fit the car, and would prefer to get one based on the engine type, since their website does not distiguish between an FXT or a regular forester. I don't think it is the same as the STi, or the legacy. Similar but not the same. Just want to make sure, especially when installing an oil filter.

Thanks

Yes the filter should be the same as the STi. It is smaller than the normal WRX 2.0 ltr filter.

Wix part #51365.

I can't stand those dinky filters. I prefer the larger ones. They used to specify the dinky filter for the WRX, but decided to change. I wouldn't put one in.

I thought the WRX was to stick with the 2 L platform? I would love to have this engine in my 2002 WRX. Its got a nice torque curve. Lots of low end and very little lage
