First start of my Eggenfellner Subaru E-6 engine. This is a converted automobile engine for aircraft use and is capable of producing 200 hp. Instead of burning just expensive aviation fuel, I will be able to use the cheaper 92 Octane auto fuel, or as necessary, aviation gas. Repairs and maintenance of this engine will also be cheaper then a typical aircraft engine. Being water cooled, it will have far less vibration and will be quieter then the typical air cooled aircraft engine. It will eventually be attached to my RV-8A that I am currently building.
Glasair 1RG Fly By 260 MPH - Subaru EG33 Motor
Father-In-Law's first flight in a Glasair aircraft powered by a Subaru
Alcyone SVX EG33 six cylinder 202 cubic inch engine. He had never before
experienced any "G Loads" and handled them well. Watch us make a high speed
Geared Drives 200Z PSRU For Subaru
At the time this was the worlds only Subaru on an RV9A using a hydraulic
constant speed prop. This prototype unit has all of the same features of
the original Geared Drives PSRU including its own oil reservoir, oil pump
and filtration system, drive port for hydraulic prop governor, and flywheel
and centrifugal clutch assembly. This airplane with the P2 prototype Geared
Drives PSRU can be seen at Sun n Fun Air Show, Lakeland, FL, April 21-26,
2009. Look for the Geared Drives booth N52 for directions the aircraft

Aircraft Emergency And Landing in a Glasair - the impossible turn ???
My Glasair engine is a Subaru SVX EG-33. Six bearings in the planetary
speed reduction unit failed during departure. I declared an in-flight
emergency and immediately returned for landing. Total flight time was 63
I failed to plug the camera mike in so you don't hear the engine monitor
blaring out alarms or chatter between other pilots and myself.
Departure was made with 10 degrees of flaps and remained there until
landing with 25 degrees. The buzzer during much of the flight is the "gear
up" with "flaps extended" warning horn ... the stall horn never sounded.
Speed did drop but the flight never reached critically low speed. Power
was intentionally reduced to keep gearbox temps down. I fly patrol flights
at 500 ft or less, often 6 to 7 hrs a day. So I do have low level
maneuvering experience. Some may call this the impossible turn but power
was available during the entire flight.
RV 7A Construction
This is a series of rough shop photos documenting the build progress of my
Van's Aircraft RV-7A Slider.
Other RV builders make be interested in the custom fuselage rotisserie that
I built. It is simple and relatively inexpensive to build. You will
wonder how you ever got by without one!
Glasair Subaru First Test Start
http://www.GlasairProject.com: I had been building my Glasair I for about 8
1/2 years. I designed this Subaru engine installation. This is the first
test start of the engine. Visit GlasairProject.com
Homebuilt airplane with Subaru motor + 3 turbos for high altitude flying
Subaru ej22 car motor with 3 turbo
chargers and a burn box. Petrol goes by hot Exhaust to vaporize it - the burn box air is
direct from one turbo unit. When you
turn on petrol in the chamber and ignited the hot Exhaust is mixed with motor Exhaust to run the other turbo chargers that one needs at high elevation
(10,000 m. altitude plus).
I likes song Blinded by Science because forward view is not so good because
of the "science". ha, ha.

Fiat 500 with Subaru engine
This is a Fiat 500 modified by ZCars Ltd to the specification of a customer
from Greece. The design brief was to fix his 500 in an interesting way so
that it would have more useable power to enable him to drive his family
around town in comfort. Whilst he was tempted to have the Suzuki Hayabusa
conversion ZCars also produce he decided that he wanted to keep the rear
seats. As that is where the 200bhp motorcycle would be installed that
option was ruled out!
The engine is an EA81 Subaru engine (1800cc flat 4) which is quite an old
engine although still widely used as an aviation engine we are told. This
engine was used due to its simplicity, power and torque characteristics and
not least its size and shape. This was mated to the original gearbox with
clutch and drive shafts up rated. Also up-rated were the brakes with discs
all around and the suspension at the front. The transverse leaf spring was
removed and adjustable alloy dampers were used with coil springs. A new
front subframe was fitted to allow the use of wishbone suspension arms.
Obviously as it is a water cooled engine, radiators were required. This was
inserted into the front boot space (trunk) and water pipes run underneath
the car. A new stainless steel Exhaust
finished the conversion and new wheels and tyres were fitted as an optional
Awesome V12 Monster diesel engine Awake and Alive startup
Awesome V12 Monster diesel engine Awake and Alive startup
The first V-type engine (a 2-cylinder vee twin) was built in 1889 by
Daimler, to a design by Wilhelm Maybach. By 1903 V8 engines were being
produced for motor boat racing by the Société Antoinette to designs by
Léon Levavasseur, building on experience gained with in-line four-cylinder
engines. In 1904, the Putney Motor Works completed a new V12 marine racing
engine -- the first V12 engine produced for any purpose. Known as the
'Craig-Dörwald' engine after Putney's founding partners, the engine
mounted pairs of L-head cylinders at a 90 degree included angle on an
aluminium crankcase, using the same cylinder pairs that powered the
company's standard 2-cylinder car. A single camshaft mounted in the central
vee operated the valves directly. As in many marine engines, the camshaft
could be slid longitudinally to engage a second set of cams, giving valve
timing that reversed the engine's rotation to achieve astern propulsion.
"Starting is by pumping a charge into each cylinder and switching on the
trembler coils. A sliding camshaft gave direct reversing. The camshaft has
fluted webs and main bearings in graduated thickness from the largest at
the flywheel end." Displacing 1,119.9 cuin (18,352 cc) (bore and stroke
of 4.875" x 5" (123.8 x 127 mm)), the engine weighed 950 pounds (430 kg)
and developed 150 bhp (110 kW). Little is known of the engine's
achievements in the 40-foot hull for which it was intended, while a scheme
to use the engine to power heavy freight vehicles never came to
fruition. One V12 Dörwald marine engine was found still running in a
Hong Kong junk in the late-1960s.
Two more V12s appeared in the 1909-10 motor boat racing season. The Lamb
Boat & Engine Company of Clinton, Iowa built a 1,558.6 cuin (25,541 cc
(5.25" x 6" (133.4 x 152.4 mm)) engine for the company's 32-foot Lamb IV.
It weighed in at 2,114 pounds (959 kg). No weight is known for the massive
3,463.6 cuin (56,758 cc) (7" x 7.5" (177.8 x 190.5 mm)) F-head engine built
by the Orleans Motor Company. Output is quoted as "nearly 400 bhp (300
By 1914, when Panhard built two 2,356.2 cuin (38,611 cc) (5" x 10" (127 x
254 mm)) engines with four-valve cylinder heads the V12 was well
established in motor boat racing.
In automobiles, V12 engines have not been common due to their complexity
and cost. They are used almost exclusively in expensive sports and luxury
cars because of their power, smoother operation and distinctive sound.

Subaru STI engine start for first time
Finally the new engine runs for the first time after much tuning of the AEM
ECU. Next will come a bit of road tuning and then tuning on the drag strip.
The electric drill is powering the Petersen oil lubricating and scavenging
pump. For the start up the belt was removed to ensure constant lubrication.
