I see what youre saying. The left hinge looks kind of bent outward. It's still a huge engine for the car though.

Just kidding, it's all good. Yeah Subaru produces some pretty nice cars.

I cant imagine needing to do body work on these cars after a wreck Brian. Man the thing is scary straight down the side line and the gaps are ridiculously close. Built like an old brick dump house tight on the panels from what I see,,,

The motor is Subaru's first in many a year, sounds like a high rever,,,check out the oil filter location now that is OK stuff!!

Your right though,,, there are engines and then there are just engines

We work on them everyday (well we don't have a Subaru in the shop every day but you get the idea) and most late model cars are pretty stellar when it comes to fit and finish. They are SOOOOO many miles ahead of the older cars it isn't funny.

Wicked and beautiful;

repco Brabham 215 Olds engine. because it reminds me of when hot rodding ingenuity was alive and well, even in the high end race stuff.

and the flatty for similar reasons. this is the 302 MPH Ron Main streamliner engine BTW.

I have no idea what sparked me to start this thread but I thought it may be fun and the first "Motor" that popped into my head was the Sissell twin engine Chevy six rail. I saw this car at an event and honestly I was suppose to leave, I had somewhere to be but I HAD to hang around to see this car run. It is a friggin work of art!

Dammit Brian, now I have to go dig through a drawer full of old photo's ,LOL.

I have a picture of an original Ardun in the redhead streamliner setting on the salt from the early 80's.
