the exahust is a dual, not the turbo. but do to the fact the engine is back in original position, the exhaust tucks straight under the motor and over the front engine crossbmember. so there's no way i can hit that exahaust without landing straight on it. no cats on the exahaust either.
it's cruising great at highway speeds!! more get up and go then it had before the built motor. but i top out around 75 on the freeway.
sorry sean i didn't call before going through medford. i couldn't get your # off the pm, do to the board being down. i'm sorry. i'll have to stop by next time i come through.
not sure when i'll get back. hopefully in may. for a day or 2.

Here are some pix of us today in Sacramento on the American river. We drove to the ORV park, but for some reason the park is closed on wednesdays (and only wednesdays).
So i took him to the river for some river access off-roading. Got some good shots. Also got a good "evolution" shot:

Anyway. The car looks like it sits really well. The T-case conversion seems to be getting real popular. I mean with a 4inch body lift on my Loyal I can clear 30's and if I really hacked up the fender wells I'm sure I could get some 31's under there, but at this point I would have no crawling ability. That is what I like about the T-case conversion, plus it's makes it alot easier and cheaper to get a front LSD.
The only thing is that when you get to the point of using a devorce transfer you kinda straying away from it being a Subaru drivetrain anymore. You may as well do a strait axle swap with all the fabricating you have to do. At least they are proven to twist:rolleyes:
Just wondering at what point does a lifted Subaru just become a Subaru body on a truck chassis?
P.S. I have been mulling around the idea of putting some Samurie Spl? axles under a Justy with an EJ22T power plant, custom 4 links with coilovers and room for 37's. I have the Justy and the Samurie.

the next question to ask is. when does a yota or jeep become a just a body and frame, with no ground roots. completely differant drivetrains and suspensions?? they are still considered toy's.

I still say it's a Subaru - Jared has a point in that the Jeeps and Yota's that are heavily modded are no better - they are not stock either - so what's the difference? I say "not stock" is the same no matter how you cut it. Call it what you want - it's really "formerly built by Subaru". Just cause someone has personalized it does not change where it came from in the first place. Is a Saleen mustang not an f-word anymore? Jareds soob is just as much a subaru as my lifted wagon is - he can off-road with me any time.

how did you get the tcase to hook up? and do the lift, is still just a huge body lift or are there any suspention mods done? i am very curious as to how this works. in all retrospect how does it fair off road as compared to its more popular counterparts(jeeps and trucks)? looks good none the less.
