Are most of your transplant engines EJ22’s? One of the students at school wrote off his 1999 Forrester. It ran and drove fine apparently with 140k on the odometer. I don’t have access to the car but from doing a bit of research it looks to be either a EJ25D (DOHC) or a EJ251 (SOHC). I can get the whole car for a song. $375. Any advantage or disadvantage to either of these engines? I would hate to buy it and not be able to use the engine. (Sorry John.

Jeremy is most likely a 2.5 single over head. That’s what’s in my square. It’s a great motor, if your going in a type 1 based engine bay, it will require cutting.
A 2.2 will fit in the type 1 style engine bay without cutting shit up.
Thats a good price too!

HELL FUCKING YEAH!! I cant wait to daily this beast again. looking forward to spending more time driving and less time wrenching.
I was telling Andy that now hes getting a pretty big customer base, we should do a Subi vs. aircooled rally and see who can get to the goal destination with the least amount of “maintenance” stops 🙂makibakaParticipantFebruary 26, 2018 at 10:34 pmPost count: 11
Fuel pump pin, huh? I think I was too unkind to that motor commuting over the altamont pass 😓
at the least the subi fits more my driving style 😁mtnbusParticipantFebruary 27, 2018 at 6:36 amPost count: 258
Im gonna have to go down this road with my VanagonBBWBParticipantFebruary 27, 2018 at 6:38 amPost count: 439
You’re going to love a 2.5 in the bus. I’ve been daily driving mine now for over a year and a half. Been to Havasu twice, and Moab once. Never a squawk from the engine. I had a transmission bearing go out. But that was due to my keeping the clutch in at stops. Then I had to replace axle boots. Again, more to do with type of axle boots I used.
I'm at the age where "fuck off", "fuck you", and "fuck it" answer most questions.FranzKeymasterFebruary 27, 2018 at 8:33 amPost count: 1164
I don’t buy the subaru is more reliable BS
Sure, Its more reliable that a busted-ass worn-out 73 super 0r 85 vanagon.
…but a fresh 2276cc, I’ll hang with your subaru all day, and then some.JeremyParticipantFebruary 27, 2018 at 8:35 amPost count: 29

Other the admiting you go both ways it will do fine.

Thanks guys. Thinking of putting it in a single cab.FranzKeymasterFebruary 27, 2018 at 8:36 amPost count: 1164
Less weight, less moving parts, easier to tune, I can get parts at any napa or junkyard, and they are all over the world.
Why do you want to put junkyard Japanese engines into vintage German cars? Its like installing a Yamaha Vstar engine into a panhead Harley. That shit would be lame.FranzKeymasterFebruary 27, 2018 at 9:21 amPost count: 1164
The hardest part though, is that you’re going to have to call your parent to tell them that you are gay.AndymParticipantFebruary 27, 2018 at 9:57 amPost count: 393
I haven’t seen any 100,000 vw engine last.. especially a 2276. Last time I checked local auto Parts can’t find 2276 Parts. Carbs?
Different strokes for different folks! I’m good with being different.
I love ive you KCW guys too.
