you are correct about turbo pull style aplications, but on the LS 1 Chevy, they changed back to push style after trying pull style, its a cool idea, but not practical, kinda like reverse cooling
the pull style was also engineered around the main bearing , in particular the thrust main bearing, if you are going to change from push style to pull style you should be sure your crankshaft main thrust bearing will support the movement
as much as i can't believe subaru would change much on the thrust bearing because they basically hate to change anything, you do bring up a good point. at trip to subaru and ask if the parts are even different would be a start or at least touch them both and see if they are different.
"Go over to legacy central and talk to red devil about his NA push style clutch in his twin charged legacy wagon. "
that dude is nuts!for sure.....:eek:cheers
right, well the 400+ awd wheel hp via the NA push clutch has to say something. and if i remember right, that was like a $300 clutch that he had made.
and he uses that for drag racing, i can't picture anyone ever making that kind of power and being able to put it to the ground of a rwd subaru.
when i did my rwd in my lego for a couple weeks it was hell getting going some times. i got stuck on a small wet hill. that rear suspension never was meant to take all the power and doesn't know how to transfer it to the ground properly. aka, squat, weight transfer, things subaru never really designed into the rump roast end of the legos+
