    Top Speed

    try fuelly for "average" fuel economy, mine is the gl-10 it has the ea81 with ea82 intake and carb, with the ea82T 3.7 PB 4wd the engine makes more power than the clutch can handle, which doesn't mean much which trans. and gearing you have will make a difference as to the "power" for going uphill or against the wind

    Holy subaru god's

    the '85 & '86 had different style shifter from my '85 before I bought it I like my "crest brown" '86 GL-10 better, roof rack, sunroof, added LSD, hitch, ea81, slightly newer radio and equalizer you have ea82t, not ea81t, you seemed to indicate you had both in one post, IIRC
  13. confirmed: I found an old set for a ? '79 lincoln continental town car in the shed that are not as bad as the old DUDs clearancing of the bump stop lower pad must be done, no problem for angle grinder with cutoff wheel. still looking for FRONT inserts!
