This is the 1.8L VW boxer engine intended for use in a '75 Porsche 914 race car. The engine has been race prepped by myself and others at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology. We are Team Rose Motorsports, and we build and race cars. We also have an 88 Ford Mustang setup for drag racing and an 89 BMW 325is that competes in D-stock SCCA solo autocross.

[SUBARU] FB engine -The 3rd Generation SUBARU BOXER
The horizontally-opposed configuration of the SUBARU BOXER engine places
the pistons 180 degrees apart, for a lower, flatter profile than other
engine types. This gives the engine, and the overall vehicle, a lower
centre of gravity and better balance. Further, the pistons' opposing
movements counteract each other, naturally helping to reduce vibration.
This year, a new generation of engines delivers enhanced output, efficiency
and emissions whilst sharing all the legendary benefits of the 11 million
SUBARU BOXER engines already produced.(see more detail at

Volkswagen announce the arrival of the 313 MPG XL1. the worlds most economical car late 2013
Volkswagen have announced the production of the world's most fuel efficient
car - designed like a futuristic motor and capable of an incredible 313MPG.
The Volkswagen XL1 with its super sleek design is powered by a miniscule
800cc diesel engine and a separate electric motor and battery pack.
This will give the plug-in hybrid a 0-62mph time of 12.2 seconds and a top
speed limited to a modest 99mph.
But the XL1 is not about sporty performance but environmentally-friendly
driving - with Volkswagen claiming it will be capable of a record breaking
313miles per gallon
Driving this environmentally friendly car means the lightweight vehicle
would cost only around £1.40 to travel 62 miles.
It can also cover a distance of up to 31 miles in all-electric mode where
it emits zero carbon dioxide.
Overall emissions are a mere 21g/km - less than a quarter of the amount
produced by the famous ultra-green Toyota Prius.
Despite weighing just 795kg, the XL1 is anything but flimsy with VW
building the two-seater out of lightweight but tough carbon fiber.
Volkswagen confirmed it will build an initial 50 models at the company's
Osnabrueck factory in Germany alongside its Golf Cabriolet and Porsche
But the firm refused to give any indication on how much the aerodynamic
two-seater will cost.
The XL1 will be on show at next month's Geneva Motor Show with the first
models produced by the end of 2013.and IT is a little phallic in shape I
guess, so a sexy looking car too
