That guy took stuff personal. I didn't see anything really personally attacking the guy. I welcomed him to show me the 2.0, said I liked the basic idea but like others was skeptical about motorcycle carbs on subie. Wrong size, tuned for wrong RPM and air flow needs, and hacked out the hood of an otherwise very nice old GL.
I don't understand why people come on here and ask for opinions, and then get mad when you give them honestly.
I had lofty aspirations of building an Awesome hi-comp ea82t once. It was a dumb idea. people told me. GD was one of them. I didn't like it but they were right. that was nearly 15 years ago. I still love the EA82 as a basic engine for what it is. It sure does rev smooth compared to the EA81. but I digress.
Dangit, if you read this. I really meant it. It's not personal. It's about the car. We care about the cars. I actually care more about your car than I do you since I don't know you but I've known these subarus since I was a baby. It pains me to see one willfully destroyed for a cheap giggle. I just didn't want to see you go past a point of no return and turn that lovely car your wife obviously loves into junk.
Take a chill pill and welcome back.
