EZ36D Subaru Engine
The EZ36D engine had a diecast aluminium cylinder block with 92.0 mm bores and a 91.0 mm stroke for a capacity of 3630 cc. For the EZ36D, sintered iron pieces within cylinder block controlled thermal expansion of journal clearances during warmup; according to Subaru, the iron pieces also relieved shocks to the crankshaft journals and reduced overall vibrations.
