My trans now is in great condition, shifts smooth. Only needs new shifter bushings and that's it. Last fluid change was with factory Subaru Extra-S 75-90 gear oil and the fluid that came out looked good, no chunks or shavings. It only has 142,000 on it

Keep an eye out for my for sale after I get everything out of the car.Just waiting to get the harness back and I should be ready to start swapping. I'll try and take as many pics as I can along the way.

I've always dreamed of doing something like this to a lightweight EA body. I can't wait to see the results! Good work, man!

I don't see an EA series radiator on their site, is that a GC unit? Have you had a chance to fit it up in the car yet?

Such a pretty up-pipe doesn't deserve a JetHot turbine housing? :brow:

Lookin' forward to seeing the build. Best of luck,
Jason

The radiator is for a wrx. I'll have to notch the frame rails a bit to fit it.
The turbo will be covered by a Cobb heatshield anyway LOL

I'm exciting to see how this swap goes for you!

I too plan on doing an upgrade like this in the near future. First thing first is I need to find the vehicle to upgrade! :lol:

Best of luck with the swap, it is going to be so awesome!
