Nico,

This may be for another thread but do you have any future plans for your XT6? A build of some sort?

If not, have you done anything to it yet and if so, what? Thanks!



No I only purchased that xt6 for the parts I need to convert my gl-10 to awd and 5x100. I scraped it in the winter it was to messed up to make a nice car out of it.

There is another one I been looking at but it's across Canada so maybe I'll fly out there and drive it back home.

Great spot for those switches. This thing will be sweet when it's finished. You should ask to have this moved to the members rides section.

Finding backshells and strain reliefs for ms style aviaton cannon plugs should be easy, getting the proper crimp tool and insertion/removal tools that's the hard/expensive part.

The last time I checked a full set of Daniels crimp tools was over $2000US... Needless to say I don't have a set.

I have the DCCDPro installed on my 6 spd swapped Forester XT. It works great. And by far the best customer service I have ever been given.
