pat,

i have XT6 parts cars that have everything you need. costs will be high. i've put together complete XT6 engine kits for two NZ residents. it wasn't easy and it wasn't cheap, but it is doable. these will not be light and shipping won't be cheap. fees everywhere (paypal fees, international fees, currency conversion charges, shipping, insurance, customs). if you're interested and aren't in an immediately hurry i can help. email or PM me and we'll talk. or i'll trade you everything straight up for plane tickets to NZ for the wife and i! last year was a toss up...Hawaii or NZ, we chose Hawaii but still want to visit NZ! i think these parts places should consider a plane ticket as commission for all the parts i've sent that way. here's a pic of the NZ'ers and their Subaru goodies i sent:

If you can live without an e-brake, you can use Legacy/Impreza parts for the front conversion, but you will have to get XT6 stuff for the rear. A FWD XT6 rear brake system will work, but will require that the center hole be slightly enlarged. I don't know if you guys got the Nissan (Datsun) 200SX, but the rear e-brake on those cars is a close bolt on with some fabrication required.

^ The Datsun 200SX may be called the S12 Silvia over there.

This fellow in Australia is in the process of making Liberty (Legacy - whatever floats your boat) hubs fit onto L Series (EA82)
