Subaru powered lambo, a lambaroo? -actual build NOW, with pics....
Posted 09 June 2005 - 07:33 PM
A stock Diablo VT puts out 523Hp and 446Tq at the crank, right now my STI is putting down 463Hp and about the same in Tq, this is not an unusual goal for the STI to reach and be a daily driver. I ran just under 600 in my XT using the EG33 in a TT configuration close to that of the Nissan 300ZX. The sort of build needed to make a safe, reliable daily driver at 525HP is well proven in the Subaru world. Pics will be up on my site as the build progresses.
Here is the car as it is right now:
And the same 99VT model with the same paint and interior I have chosen:

As for the car, unfortunatly it will be RWD and not AWD, the hoodline does not permit the engine to be mounted in it's correct location for the front shafts to power the front wheels. The engine moved far back enought to clear would put the tranny out of alignment by a signifigant ammount. The Subaru AWD system is just not adaptable to a mid engine configuration. I looked at a few (and I do mean few) AWD systems that are such as the Carrera4 that can run AWD and rear engine but they put the engine too far back or have reverse rotation of the engine etc. etc. etc.

you could try to run the shaft down and out the front something like this (or along the side just under the driverside header.)

Lambo's have had that done IIRC for the AWD diablo's

imho i think a high hp car RWD would be more fun then anything big nice power slides and the weight of the awd would not be a big + when its a lambo since i doubt you will be driving it in much more then 1in of snow... so i think your orignal set up rwd 5000 hp lambo will be sweet..
just to clarify this is a kit car not a real lambo right......

So what have you done to the STI to bring it up to 500hp?
Posted 19 June 2005 - 07:16 PM
My sister is looking at options and is thinking of moving on from where she is now. She interned at JPL, and graduated with an Aerospace degree from Embry Riddel (sp?) and is working dark projects for the gov out of a Boeing satellite division (used to be Hughes space systems). Drop me a PM if you want. I'd like to pass the info on to her. --Eric
