Info on how to soup up my 88 GL?
Posted 26 August 2003 - 09:07 PM
1. Go faster, i.e. Turbo, intake
2. What type of wheels fit
3. what sort of suspension mods are availible
4. any bolt on Stlying acessories, such as bodykits, spoilers,hoods, custom bumpers, headlights.
My Car is, as I said, A 1988 4 door 5 speed wagon, whith Hi and Lo range 4wd, not sure if turbo, but I dont think so. It has 194,000+ miles.
Also, has anyone had any problems with the front end?Something
is dragging, especially when I have the steering turned almost full lock either side.
Any info would be much apreciated

There is someone here thats turbo'd an spfi.. not sure of any of the details, but it isn't common.
To put a Turbo motor in, you would need the whole wiring harnes from the dash forward from a turbo car.

As for suspension mods - there are none that I know of. You can get body lift kits for off-road, but I didn't gather that's exactly what you wanted.
As for wheels - basically there aren't any of those either. The only ones around are original subaru wheels, some aftermarket sets that aren't made anymore (can get em used here on the board sometimes), and Peugeot 504 and 505 rims (hard to find). All of these rims are a 4x140mm bolt pattern. Alternativly, you can go to a junk yard, and get a bunch of suspension parts from an XT6, and retrofit your car to the legacy 5 bolt pattern. This opens you up to a whole bunch of wheel possibilities. Someone here could tell you what parts you need for that.
Don't know of any body kits either... but maybe.
