Looks great.

Your setting the bar pretty high with a nice build.

I'm going to have to get back to fabricating to catch up..

I think we may be chassis and suspension tuning about the same time. Likely built with similar capabilities. I'm curious what your impressions will be of the chassis compared to your legacy and further to an impreza.

Thanks Sam ! I got lucky I guess finding such a perfect Subaru so I could not resist on doing this to it.

I don't know how this car will handle after I'm done with it. as of now in stock form it's very very loose. From a impreza to legacy the legacy feels smoother with its longer wheel base and weight.

I'm putting coil overs and some white line products on the gl-10. I have a couple ideas on stiffing the car up. If that does not work I'll put a real cage in it

So far I have a 6 pt roll bar, strut tower to firewall brace and alot of stitch welding. I'll see how this setup goes for me and decide on a full cage/chassis car or swapping to an impreza.

I haven't had this setup on the road yet. I can't really say much more than you did about the stock set up as my suspension was pretty worn out.

My goal is to get a strong stable car that can cope with 350hp, big brakes and 8" (at least) worth of sticky tire per corner without having a full tilt race car chassis. We shall see.

im going to make a h brace like the other subarus have and fender brace, the rear in these cars look very tuff no room for anything.

ya my car only has 28,000km and is all stock so its really a new car, it handles good just not great yet.

cant wait to see your ride when its done 350hp should be nice in these cars. with 8" tires should handle like a dream looking forward to see your build

Check out Suberdaves GL. He installed a front mount on his wagon. Same body style.
