I have found a good deal on EJ- 18 here local and I can find the spec's online
I did find these basic spec's
110 hp @ 5600 RPM
110 ft lb torque @ 4400 rpm
Has anyone had any dealings with these engines?
What is the weight of a bare engine?
How is the reliable is this engine compaired to a EJ-22.
solid or hydralic lifters??
The engine is in a Imprezna 1993, a disabled man had the car and had hand contols on it.It should not be hurt to bad.
I am sure automan has had some experence on these.
An EJ 18 excist in monopoint injection and multipoint.
Yours must be multipoint regarding the 110 hp.
The engine is almost identical to the Ej 22 max weight difference is 1 kg.
Between the EJ 22 and the EJ 20 there is only 0.5 kg difference.

I think that all the ej-series have belt driven camshafts.
Mike, if it is a good deal, then just add a foot of extra rotor blade to cover the extra weight. Extremelly reliable engines, Just a smidgen(technical word) heavy.

Jos / Paul it is a multi-point injection system on the motor.
I wouldn't waste my time on an EJ18 when I could get an EJ22 that only weighed 2.2 pounds more and developed 20 more Hp. The engine will develop around 70 Hp in direct drive mode while the EJ22 will make 90 or more.
If you put a carb on it the engine will make even less Hp. One advantage is that the EJ18 and EJ22 are interchangable since the engine mount, bell housing, and crankshaft flange bolt patterns are identical. The EJ18 was standard in the Impreza and the EJ22 was an option.

Don point well taken on HP and weight, I really am not in a big hurry for a engine but know were the 18 is and it is handy to get too. That is why I posted here to see what the difference was in the 18's as opposed to the 22's. I intend to maintain fuel injection on no matter what I buy. I just like the Sub's for their low engine out record. Were I will be flying it would be a bad thing to have to try to follow back roads everywere. Too many hills here for engine outs. I know one would be surviable but sure would trash a gryo in the process. I don't have deep pockets so I must take care of what I have.
