A Boxer installed inside the
Subaru is distinctly
better because it is smaller and creates less vibrations than straight
Furthermore bear in mind
that its horizontally opposed
layout causes that a
vehicle has the benefit of a lower center of
gravity what affects the better grip. The advantage of engine which cylinders are arranged in a line, like the one
inside the Ford Tempo II 2.3 102HP manual, is that thanks to its simplicity of
construction it can be fuel efficient compared to
other types of engines.
