Ok, so I will be getting a suby here in the near future (bout time..been w/o for a year.) I am hoping to find one in need of repair.
I have decided on a 1997-2001 IMP OTB Wagon. Would prefer auto but don't care as long as it has A/C and Cruise. I will be using it as a DD and commuting back and forth from Seattle to Spokane on a regular basis. In conjunction with using it for my outdoor hobbies, of backpacking, snowboarding, and kayaking.
So I am playing around with the different engine mods and plan on giving it a "new" suspension. I am looking for what you all think would be the best situation for my style of driving conditions. Please don't base your input on what would be cool, but what you know would be a good combination and works well. MPG VS HP or a decent combo of both. YES I have all the different platforms already, to build any one of these given scenarios. So its just a matter of assembly.
So here is the platform:
97-2001 IMP OTB Sport wagon
OTB lift blocks (factory)
Forester 15in rims (or OTB)
195/75/15 (or slightly larger what ever will fit the best)
UEL headers for what ever configuration and cat back exhaust (may run a different cat as well)
Different Engine scenarios.
Stock EJ22 (just drive it)
EJ22 with delta torque cams (a little more pep)
SOHC EJ25 Stock (do a transplant on it)
SOHC EJ25 w/ delta torque cams
EJ25/22 Frankein Motor
EJ25/22 Franken Motor w/ delta torque cams
So let the ideas come forth. Thank you all for your input.
