Apologize

Engine failures have quieted down -- people are reliably running the FA24 both on the street and the track, sometimes even fully stock, without oil coolers.
Furthermore:
>boxer
>naturally aspirated
>12.5:1 compression ratio
>100hp per liter
This is literally a Porsche GT3 tier engine. Time will prove it.
Apologize right now.

      It widely known they had issues with composite head gaskets but have since switched to metal head gaskets. This solved the problem for years now.
      They also have an issue with oil starvation. Because of the geometry of the engine, it's a little harder to get the oil to flow properly. However, the oil pan is redesigned and if you don't run it low on oil then, again it's fine.
      I think Boxer engines are cool. I would buy one but they aren't prefect. A basic inline 4 cylinder only has 1 head, easier to reach spark plugs and is a much simpler engine.

            I've owned two Subarus. The only issue I've had is leaving the interior light on for a few days and draining the battery, and I love wringing out second/third whenever I have the chance.

            The 365bb and the testarossa don´t have a boxer 12 engine, they have a 180º V12. Because there is a 60º gap between each cylinder explosion in a v12, you can use the same exact crankshaft on a 180º V12 as you would use on a 60º V12 (and a 120º V12, if you wanted to build one) by simply changing the firing order.

            Ferrari built a flat 12 because they wanted to put the gearbox underneath the engine and fit the whole drivetrain in a (relatively) small car

            meh pretty much every n/a 6 cyl engine has its problems, ez's biggest seem to just be age and neglect at this point.
            I kind of put them in the same boat as GM's atlas 6, has huge potential but almost everything has to be custom made.

    This guy on youtube does a pretty in-depth look at the oil starvation issue during high rpm right turns.
    It's worth a watch for anyone considering using a FA24 on track.

    ?si=fbZosJ05ApW7Lwjf

    He does have more videos where they talk about overfilling the oil, and using different oil pan baffles to try to mitigate the issue.
    He has a more recent video where he's trying out a prototype high volume oil pan, which helps the issue significantly.
    If or when that pan is released, if it actually solves the problem, that'd be the only real issue with the motor solved.

    Unless you don't like hoisting an engine out of the car just to change the spark plugs.
    I suppose that's another problem for owners of the current gen brz/gr86

      Not sure what the relative years are but the current Subaru oil pans are designed to address this issue by having both a deep pocket the pump sits in and the baffles.

    This is why you don't allow toyota to build a superior boxer engine... the WRX engine which is another FA24 variant doesn't have the same issues the GR86 one does.
