Nico, your car is just amazing. I may have to do this to my wagon eventually, as I no longer have much use for D/R 4WD since moving to the flatness of Florida.

i wish i could live where the weather was all ways warm so i can keep ym car on the road all year.

if you build it fast keep it awd, this car needs it for sure or else i would be not moving at all at the lights

i had to do it sold my legacy turbo just to get me moving on lol... but it will never be done i all ways like doing more and more. dyno sheet is on the way but it makes 320whp on 25psi fifty more then the 17psi road tune that was stupid all ready to be pumping out this car. maybe ill get a bigger turbo housing to make 400whp but its all ready to much to control.






so i got my STi coupler in
Posted Image

and i am building the air oil separator system witch i can put in soon once my plastic fittings come in

mann hummel provent 200 and i welded a nipple for the drain back on my stock dip stick tube. you need a one way valve and i got high temp o rings for the provent 200 lid.

the hose is a bmw 1990 325 6 hose witch has a step in it the same size as the provent 200.

so my usplastic stuff has come in and its time to put in my provent 200 & got a little reservoir for the AWIC set up and it works perfect.

Posted Image


here we have it all put together and ready to rock.

Posted Image


made some brackets out of rod aluminum to hold it in place and its working perfect, oil is being seperated and dumped back the right way.

Posted Image

also used my factory coolant reservoir and re mounted it to the strut top with a nice aluminum plate. the AWIC reservoir fits perfect in that little corner and its working perfect.

I was shocked to find out that some rally cars use the 4X140 pattern...

My ex showed me a picture on her phone, of a rally wheel... it was most definitely a 4X140 BBS!

A Li'l off-Topic, but sharing some info about this:

Not exactly 4X140 but looks Close...

Even the "REAL" Subaru for Rally does come with a four Lug Setup

(The street versions are five lugs)


Posted Image


I have some photos: 4X114.3


Posted Image


Closer View:


Posted Image


The Reason: Four Lugs are Faster to Change than Five Lugs.

Almost nobody noticed that difference between the Rally version and the street version of those cars.

Sorry for Hijack the Thread...
Kind Regards.
