Anyhow I have 2 Suubie's of my own :
87 GL-10 Sedan Turbo 3AT <--my fav
92 Loyale Sedan 5-speed
I'm very interested in doing some MOD's to the Turbo after reading all the stuff on this site!
I just removed the stock muffler today but I barly notice any sound difference and its not loud at all???? Is there a secondary muffler?
Also I was reading about the MBC and Fuel Cut Problems, and some MOD to fix the fuel cut, can somone point me in the right direction?
I wanna run around 10-12psi of boost on pump gas, I plan on doing a high flow exhaust and intake setup along with a lower temp thermostat to help cool things down.
My 3AT only has 60k miles on it and was just recently put in (replaced the origional 102k unit that had a front diff failure) How do you think a good condition and well maintained 3AT would hold up to some more power?
Thanks in advance.

After driving around all day with the muffler removed I love it! I also got some more air into the air box, I'm noticing a slight increase in mid-range power
The sound is perfect too, not too loud at all, nice and deep growl.
I just got done installing my HID Headlight kit and putting my stereo system in.
I'll post some pics soon so you guys can check it out.

and the AT in the loyale..
Auto tranny's rob lots of power

If I could find a 5-speed 4WD tranny for the Turbo I would do it.

non turbo trannies will have a lower final gear (3.9), it will work good for off road or quick start type situations.
the turbo gearing will give you better highway economy(3.7)
make sure you would have the right gear rear diff for your transmission you will use. 5spd 4wds use a different driveshaft than the AT, but only the carrier bearing (front) half will be different

but let it be known that ALL ea82 and EA81 REAR axles are 23 spline.
