Sonerai-2

Heavier and thirstier than the VW engines the Sonerai was designed for, the Subaru EJ22 Legacy water-cooled 4-banger does fit well and adds over half again the horsepower. Actual power is untested; stock Legacy engines are rated at 135 hp at 5500 rpm, Williams runs his at 4500 rpm for something over 100 hp.
