1990 syncro westy engine conversion


New member
Well, it is time for a new engine on my syncro. I have done some investigation and have narrowed my choices down to a 2.5 l subaru engine and a 2500cc gowesty engine. Basically, my concerns in looking at engines are fuel economy and power. At first, I was sold on the TDI conversion, but it doesn't seem like an option considering there is no one locally here in Salt Lake that deals with these conversions and/or maintenance. I can't seem to find any specs on these engines for Westies. Does anyone have any specs or recommendations on these engines as far as fuel economy and power?
Thanks, Mike
