Why not put your car year/make/model in your signature?I really want to bug a 2008 Subaru but for now.. I got this one.
Okay well this one is about a 2000 Subaru Outback. Not sure I want to be reminded of that in my sig though!Why not put your car year/make/model in your signature?
3 pages of blabber, and we still don't know what specific vehicle this is pertaining to.
It's not about you. It's about people replying to your questions having some context.Okay well this one is about a 2000 Subaru Outback. Not sure I want to be reminded of that in my sig though!
Alright I'll add it.It's not about you. It's about people replying to your questions having some context.
Dr. Hass is a Oral surgeon.
I know that. I read his article. Thick oil, thin oil,, I don't know for 100%.Dr. Hass is a Oral surgeon.
But, Dr. Haas is a Plastic surgeon, and he owned/owns a Ferrari Enzo in which he which he infamously ran 20 grade oil, where a much higher grade is called for. And we discussed this ad nauseam. Much of this happened during the rollout of 0W20 lubricants for passengers cars, and there was an ongoing thick/thin debate - and Dr. Haas' experiences certainly added some colour to the conversation. - Ken
No comment on that whole thing.Plastic surgeon ... 300cc or 400cc ... ??
Only thing you are changing is the bore and stroke. The crankshaft will still be spinning @ the same rpm @ 75 mph( or any other speed) as it did before.My question then is how can going from 2.5 L to 2 L NOT yield higher RPM?
You will likely need to rev higher to go places quickly due to torque, but top speed is gear ratio related. Without lower RPM torque, to get to speed quicker you need to rev up to a higher RPM and downshift more often, whereas on a higher torque motor you could cruise in higher gears without downshifting. You might need to downshift to 3rd or 4th to pass on the highway and go up to 4000rpm, when with 2.5L you could do the same move staying in 5th at only 3200rpm. But your maximum speed in all gears will be the same, 1st will stop at say, 25-30mph at 6500rpm redline, 5th cruising at 70 would still be 3000RPM, etc. (I don't know the numbers for your car.)Okay, awesome.
My mechanic tells me I'm going to really enjoy the EJ20. Would you agree?
I was honestly thinking it was going to be revving higher because of smaller displacement. Never changed the type of engine before. Subaru yields a first.
JT20 is in denial. - Whomever he used to be in a previous life.....
One thing I've heard about an EJ20 swap on Reddit is sometimes it doesn't quite work with all the electronic bits like o2 sensors, MAF, throttle position sensors, etc, etc. One guy I read about got an unwitting EJ20 swapped car that he only found out about after getting it, that was sold cheap because the prior owner could never get it running right. ....
Ya know, Mr. ArcoGraphite, I'm not disputing anything you say. What I SHOULD do is get another car, say hey Subaru it was nice while it lasted but now your engine is done for so I'm just going to move on, and get like a Maxima or something.JT20 is in denial. - Whomever he used to be in a previous life
It is absolutely NOT going to run right with out the JDM ECU or a reflash. Someone should be able to do this.
That Outback is going to be dog with a 2L and a 4EAT. It would probably tolerate a 5M but not that slushbox - solid though it is.
My 2011 is a 6M with a 2.5 and the low effective gearing in 1 and 2 get it moving surprisingly well for a 4 banger on a 2 ton vehicle with my lard bucket in the drivers seat.
Are you purposefully obfuscating what I've stated? (Yes)The more the merrier...posts, that is.
Amazingly, he has more posts since September than you've had since joining, which was a year earlier. Pretty crazy.The more the merrier...posts, that is.
