I'm a new USMB member from the other side of the "puddle" in Australia. Been on a couple of forums for a few years, ausubaru mainly. Looking to help out others and learn more things about subarus along the way.
Here's my L series - Ruby Scoo as she stands at the moment (with "new honda accord springs in the rear):
^ 3 inch lift, EJ22 with the stock L gearbox internals cased in an EJ dual range gearbox casing - no adaptor plant needed plus I keep my stock gearing for now.
When I head offroad her "big boots" are strapped on:
Some EJ conversion pics:
EJ fitted and running well:
All geared up for Australia day last year (2010) with the EJ:
Ruby Scoo in mud:
In the (crappy rented) shed a month after being in water:
And hanging out with friends:
My videos on youtube
Everything on this subi has been built or modified/fitted by myself with exception to the rear bar where my uncle helped me out with the whole construction for start to finish - well he built it, I was his caddy for a day - meaning I was just trying to stay out of his way
Future mods: Snorkel, bonnet vent to get rid of more heat from under there on the hot days. I'd like to supercharge it but I'm not sure if I'll get onto that pipe dream. An endless air would be super but again space is an issue. A dual battery setup is half way complete, just need some frame work to mount the second battery under the bonnet.
Then a rear cargo setup for everything I need when I'm offroad... Just time and shed space I don't have at the moment.
An awd dual range gearbox is being sorted for better onroad handling and reduction of the torque steer behaviour the EJ can induce. Can't wait for that gearbox!
This is such a large forum I hope to get to all the corners at some point in time, hope you've enjoyed the short story about my 88 DL wagon and the videos if you had the time to check them out.
