Weber wont fit the carter intake. You need a Hitachi intake manifold to make it work.

but i have one problem...my throttle cable isnt long enough? this car had a carter carb and the throttle cable hooks on the oposite side of the carb so do i need a different throttle cable like one that was for a car with a hitachi? are they longer?

Looking sick, love the stance. I need to get my 84 down low. That and a five lug will be happening after I finish the spfi swap.

Looks better with white wagon wheels IMO.  That hood, although nicely done, is better suited to an AE86 Trueno or some 80's Toyota.  I always thought the Land of the Rising Sun stuff never belonged on Subies. But it is your ride so no complaints.

 

How did you lower the front?  Cut coils or use 2wd struts?

the wheels are still white this picture just makes them look brown. and I cut coils and removed the adjuster bolts on my strut to drop the perch down a little bit.
