    Cool 2.5T Engine of the Year 2008 !

    Engine of the Year 2008

    SUBARU 2.5-LITRE TURBO (FORESTER, IMPREZA, LEGACY, OUTBACK)


    Few automotive manufacturers have given more to the boxer engine cause than Subaru. The past 12 months alone have seen engineers from the Japanese manufacturer introduce two brand new concepts to the world stage that make use of the flat cylinder formation: a 3-litre six-cylinder petrol engine, and the world’s first boxer diesel with 150bhp.

    But the 65 judges on the International Engine of the Year Awards 2008 committee have bestowed a trophy on a different flat-four unit, and one that has triumphed in this category before. When it replaced the 2-litre turbo in 2006, this 2,457cc engine scooped first prize in the 2-litre to 2.5-litre category, beating BMW’s 2.5-litre straight six by two points. Fast-forward two years, and the same two engines are locked in battle for mid-range powertrain supremacy, and the outcome is the same – only the winning margin is down to a single point.

    RESULTS
    1. Subaru 2.5-litre flat four Turbo (Forester, Impreza) 188

    2. BMW 2.5-litre 6-cylinder (Z4, X3) 187

    3. Honda Diesel 2.2-litre (Civic, Accord (Europe), CR-V, FR-V) 145

    4. Mazda 2.3-litre GDI Turbo (3MPS, 6MPS, CX-7, MPV) 118

    5. Peugeot-Citroën-Ford Diesel 2.2-litre (Citroën C5, C6, C8, Lancia Phedra, Peugeot 407, 607, 807, Citroën C-Crosser, Land Rover Freelander, Mitsubishi Outlander, Peugeot 4007) 107

    6. Toyota Diesel 2.2-litre D-CAT (Avensis, Corolla Verso, RAV4, Auris, Lexus IS220d) 90

    That's awesome!

    Too bad Subaru spent all their time on engine development and no time on the exterior design.

    NOTE: If you run a turbocharger beyond itís compressor efficiency range, it will turn into a flame thrower.

    That'd make it very close to 200HP in NA form, and slightly better mileage.

    Agreed. Subaru's 2.5L NA motor needs around 200hp and a bit more torque with better fuel efficiency to remain competitive. It's also a little thrashy sounding at higher RPM. Still a nice motor, but it's time to move ahead!

    Great to know I have a winning engine under my hood.

    Along with a closed iron-block(at least for the forced induction engines/models).
    Aluminum might weigh less, but it pales in comparison to the power that an iron block can withstand.

    New Subaru scoops WRC award!

    New body + New award winning engine = incredible - and well-earned - second place finish in the seventh and roughest round round of the WRC season.

    (I like the new body style, I better I own one)

    06pearlwrx....................having worked all weekend and only a few hours remaining before I go home to dinner and a chilled beer I am pretty tired.

    Skipping through the posts on the thread I thought you said

    " Weasel you change your avatar more times then people suck co#ks "



    Obviously only after checking I realised you said socks though it did make me chuckle to myself.

    Tmann your not upsetting Weasel again are you

    Anyway BTT I think it is great news we have stuck it to the Germans the boxer engine has and will be a force to be reckoned with.

    In regards to shapes and evolution I think most Subarus scare the living Jesus when they are coming up your back side espiecally on the motorways.

    They look hard there fast and the people who drive them are ultra cool.
