Its time for a new project! Pics to follow soon.
This week I bought an 89 XT6 out of Washington state and am getting it shipped to my place in VA. I have had two in the past and I thought about replicating the build I did in the 90's with a turbo'd EG33 swap but I decided to go a bit more exotic with a V8 swap. I liked the idea of staying with Subaru for the power plant but the practical HP limit is lower than I want for this project. I looked at two engines initially, the V10 out of the BMW M5 and an LSA based build and the LS quickly won out as being much more practical and offering more power for less effort and money. I am shooting for around 1,200Hp which is easy to do and the whole car is going to see work to support that power.
So here is my roadmap:
Driveline: LSA 6.2L supercharged - TR3160 6pd trans - G35 rear diff - 350z based rear axles and hubs
Brakes: Brembo STi all around
Front suspension: Custom crossmember - current gen Impreza based coil-overs
Rear suspension: Custom rear subframe for G35 diff and current gen Impreza suspension with about 10 inch wider track width
Wheels/tires: F: 225/40R18 R: 315/35/R18
Body: 6inch flare at rear wheel wells, front splitter, rear diffuser, side skirts, ground hugging ride height. I am still brainstorming this bit in terms of wing or not and other changes.
THINGS I NEED!!!!!!!
Help! If you happen to have any of these parts please PM me.
