    It seems like Subaru stopped producing and supporting the ee20 engine.

    It doesn’t make much sense to a potential Subaru buyer to pay for an optional engine that has troublesome design flaws.

    We were running a proprietary stand-alone ecu that didn’t have the computerized glow plug circuit or intake air heater. Plus, I’m hearing the ee20 engine has a tendency to blow head gaskets due high combustion pressures.

    The parts for this engine are not available world-wide…and supplies are already drying-up.

    Surely one of the VW PD TDI engines would make a lot more sense – bulletproof and bucketfuls of torque, esp when remapped – my old PD130 Golf was an awesome vehicle – 80k in 4 years and never missed a beat, plus 53mpg+

    Ya, very hard decision… KB and I are in love with the ee20. But with the issues we have had and the basically 0 parts ANYWHERE in the world it’s hard to continue with the ee20. KB is bummed, but he just wants to be able to use the ultimate vanagon. I think this will be better in the long run. Just a really hard way to learn
