I've had a lot of issues getting the Weber in this car to run right, some of which have been completely unrelated to the Weber like the vacuum advance causing a massive air leak and some things that are related like the carb body being so worn the choke plate was getting stuck closed causing it to run terribly. All that is straightened out and I'm fixing the oil leaks one at a time. Slow and steady wins the race... it's proving to be a very reliable and VERY fun to drive car. Quickly becoming one of the best Subarus I've had so far. I'm totally hooked on the lack of a B pillar. Shows 256,000 on the odo, but the speedo stopped working a few years ago. I've probably put a total of 15,000 or so miles on it.

Great car, love these coupes, you don't see many of them (not that you see many ea81's to begin with) Any plans for it?

When I get the money, hopefully by the end of the year, I definitely want to take care of the rust. It has some underneath that looks like it could be getting ugly in the next few years and I want this car to last me a long time. I will ride on the Weber for a while but eventually I would like to do the spfi swap. I've also considered doing a 4wd swap, but I want to keep this car light.


I'm totally in love with the longer doors of the hatches/brats/coupes. Also love the lack of a B pillar in this coupe. If I ever need to find a replacement EA81 body, it will have to be one of those three. I've had quite a few EA82s and a couple EJ18 Imprezas and an EJ22 Outback but I think this car has me hooked on the EA81s. It's just what I've been looking for in a car, minus the 4wd of course.
