Well summer is right around the corner and I finally got around to doing some upgrades on the Mountain Patrol wagon. I finally got my Weber carb installed. WOW what a difference. Now I see why all the lifted subies have webers they rock! When I got my weber installed I was contemplating putting an EA82 intake manifold on there just for the better air flow, but I decided to just have my EA81 manifold ported! I also slaughtered my clutch last year brawling. So I had to get a new one. So I just got a replacement one, works fine so far. I also got an Accell coil for better spark. In the next few weeks my wagon is going to get better and better. Right now its being worked on with something special that I don't think anyone else here has done to a lifted EA81. I did get rid of my bumpin stereo system in the wagon. Mainly because the subs were taking up to much room in the back and I want to sleep in my suby sometimes. There is still many more mods to come.

All of you will have to wait til tomorrow for pics, but I did upload a short video of some brawling since I got my weber installed. Hear that baby roar!:headbang: :burnout: :D

That snow crossing was sick. I doesn't look to deep but it was deep. My friends burly Nissan 4x4 Hardbody barely made it. The second pass I got stuck nice and good. That's why you always bring two 4x4s, to unstuck eachother.

BYW: Anybody notice my Pirate flag on my CB radio antenea?

I got my wagon back from the Exhaust shop today. I had them take the cat out of the Y pipe and the resonator out and put a 2in pipe all the way back to a Speedrex muffler. My wagon sounds sooooo burly now. It sounds like a mini WRX. I'll upload a sound/video clip tomorrow. Check the pics:

All together the whole exhaust work costs me 250 bucks, but since my birthday is on the 21st I got my Dad to pay for it. SCORE!!!!!!!

Heres the Weber pics:

I still have more to do, but here she is as of right now. Pirate flag and all.

I uploaded a video/sound bit of my new exhaust. I love how it sounds. Has anyone else actually done this to their suby. I have never seen it before. It does sound a little clanky, but thats a suby. It did free up some horsepower now that I don't have a cat.:headbang:

I have a 2" back off the header mated to a turbo muffler, sounds pretty good, kind like yours, but mine is a 1.6L carbed engine

I believe the 2" keeps the bottom end decent
