No they're not... Boxers have 2 cylinders per side layin' flat 180 degrees apart from each other. Actually better balanced than inline 4's.

Thats cool, didnt know what that meant before. Still trying to figure out what a flat four is though, or is that the same thing.

Same difference... Valve covers are parallel with the fenders, kinda weird lookin'. They're real smooth, but a PITA to work on IMO. I had a G/F that had an Impreza (all the Suby 4's are flats), a few months after she bought it we realized the spark plug was crossthreaded in the aluminum head. Kinda a pain to get a helicoil in.

There's a y-pipe that connected the 2 manifolds... On the newer models they even each have their own cat, IIRC. They're pretty wide, but they're pretty flat too, so they don't take up much space vertically. Alot of the stuff that is on the sides and goes around normal motors can go over the flat 4, and thing like the exhaust manifolds just go down off the heads straight outta the engine compartment. The WRX's even have their intercooler mounted on top of the motor, theres that much extra space. My buddy that has an exhaust shop also told me thats that why their tappets always click like their collapsed, because they're 90 degrees off kilter than a normal motor... Dunno if thats true or not but kinda makes sense I suppose.

Inline!!!!!!!!!!

OK it's an INLINE four. When he opened the hood I asked, "where's your motor?" It was so small in the engine bay. Yeah, I like the sound of Clutch impaired better. Lets bear in mind that this kid asked for the day off from school to go turkey hunting. He did mention that he changed the clutch...................Probably dicked around too much despite the fact that most hydraulic clutches are self adjusting.
