  1. Mine is lifted and it still looks "pretty"
  2. Congrats! I just licensed my lifted '83 GL as a collector car in WA also.

  4. Already bought spare clutch and throttle cables, thanks for the heads up!

    Nice shop Rob! You have done well

    Baja vs. Brat

    If they made a 2 door variant with the longer bed I would own one by now
  7. Welcome! Looks pretty good, but do enlighten me. Why the KA-24?
  8. Bad connection at the headlight connector? Moisture inside the housing? Just a couple of thoughts.

    84 brat EA81 valve tapping

    Older engines and solid lifter cams still need Zinc among other things - You are so right!
  11. I agree ^^^ but in spite of that my 3AT still lasted for 250k! It was still working when I pulled it out to swap it for a 5MT DR.
  12. Those heads look fine. Find a new set of rings and put it back together.
  13. Looking Great! Thanks for the updates.

    A gift from Pleiades

    Awesome! Another old school Subaru saved from the scrapper, at least for a little while
  16. I left the 1.19 in it. I would like to go back in and put the 1.5x in it but I don't want to tear apart a good dual range for the donor parts. I already had a junk XT6 trans and that's what gave me the idea to use the 3.9 ring and pinion. I wonder if I could fit an LSD carrier in there while I'm at it Hmm....

    Cyclops 3rd Eye Install!

    LOL I think I loaned you a stock Cyclops relay to make the diagrams from. Good Job!
  18. I used the 3.9 gears from an XT6 transmission to swap my 3.7 FT DR box so it is possible. I also swapped the axle stub shafts so it would bolt in to my EA81 Wagon. It took parts from 3 different transmissions to make mine but it was worth it.
  19. I was going to say the same thing as Olnick but I don't own an early Legacy. I do however have Impreza struts in the front end of my Loyale so I would be really surprised if some pick-n-pull struts wouldn't just fit right in. Subaru's are like Legos
  20. I tried a Delta Torque grind in my EA81 Hi-Po build and it was so noisy I couldn't stand it. The valve noise would not adjust out. Soon after two lobes failed and I had to pull the engine again. To their credit they did replace the cam and lifters and blamed the failure on the type of oil I was using. Has anyone ever heard any delta torque grind cam that wasn't excessively noisy? The extra torque was fun for a few hundred miles

  22. Congrats! I have always liked the XT's.
