Welcome to the forum!

Not sure if you've met any of them, but there's a few other members on here who live in Stoughton. I sold my red '92 Loyale to a guy out there too. Posted Image

Why the SOHC intake manifold though?

The way it sounds when it shifts sounds like an auto. Are you leaving it, or swapping it to a 5speed?

Sweet! I was looking at that exhaust stack and thinking: may as well do away with the pipes on the undercarriage and just have a short run to the hood on the other side of the snorkel? Less crap on the car -- strip it down. But yeah, sweet UAV/mudder! :headbang:

I also would like to know why the SOHC intake. Nice looking ride, love the exhaust stack and paint job. What size tubing did you use for your snorkel? And what did it do to your performance?

Ya that is probly my buddy steck. it's sweet.

It isn't the the intake Manifold that I swapped, just the tube from the throttle body to the airbox, mine had that big stupid torque box.
Then I plan on leaving it an auto for the fact of the 4.44 gears. :brow: I wanna do some more crawling and mud runs. I workin on how to get it to be posi or limited. done lotsa research.

Thanks.
I actually just used the intake tube from the throttle body to the air box instead of the big stupid "torque box" that they have on there stock.

Then the rubber grommet where the stock box meets the fender is 3". so I got a piece of 3"OD exhaust pipe then cut a couple inches out to mate the stock airbox to the snorkel which is full 3" thicker PVC. I glued all the connections.

Performance: eliminate "torque box", K&N drop in, larger custom exhaust, COLD air intake/snorkel, and rebuilt engine with machined heads for higher compression. Then UEL header ordered and en route.
and I am working on gettin a ported intake and matching throttle body. :headbang:


that thing is awesome! oddball is right! keep it up, you're an inspiration!:burnout:


Thanks so much. I definetly think it is the most fitting title.

My LGT has that same 4.44 transmission. It's not bad.
The 5speed (and maybe auto, dunno) forester XT has a 4.44 viscus LSD rear you could swap in.
Then you can do the center clutch pack lock mod for the transmission. Essentially gives you 4wd.

I want those and yes I want to rebuild or get another trans to build cause mine is kinda....iffy. but it's fine mostly when it warms up.
but yes I do wanna lock the center diff in.

It's just a switch, normal mode or locked mode. Pretty cool. I was going to do it to my car, but it never really snowed here this winter.

I'd try doing a drain and refill of ATF a few times, changing the filter the last time. Mine was shifting kinda funny, and binding up in parking lots. It's almost perfect now.

I did a drain and fill helped a lil.
added a lil Lucas trans fix. worked wonders!

Still not quite perfect. definetly still tempermental when cold, slips and harder shifts.
