  1. Good info, but you might want to look at post dates in the future This thread is from 04

    New to subaru

    As someone who has had intimate knowledge with this engine, I would say its a poor choice. Questionable reliability even in stock form. As mentioned above, if it overheats the least it will do is blow the headgaskets. Worse case - crack the head(s). I ran a turbo from a WRX (TD04) for a while, until I blew the ring lands off a piston. If there was a decent engine management system for these engines (not cheap for any of them), it might make a difference. You will have better results with the next gen of engines - the EJ22 from early Legacys and Imprezas. Even the NA version can be turboed with low boost and there are cheaper engine management systems available. The EJ22 is non interference and basically bullet proof and you can find lots of them in wrecking yards

  4. Here are some pretty recent sales on Bring a Trailer (BaT) I watched the last auction, bidding was hot and heavy in the last minute between 2 guys We can only hope we can get this much when it comes time to sell https://bringatrailer.com/subaru/brat/?q=subaru brat
  5. Do some reading in this sub forum - https://www.ultimatesubaru.org/forum/forum/18-subaru-retrofitting/ Theres also a couple of people that do lifts - SJR and ADR Or you could just drop it on a different frame all together
  6. Way back in 99-00 I traded in a 2nd gen wagon with less than 200k on it at a local dealer. I had already bought a few cars from them and they gave me $2500 for the trade in! I bought a 92 Mazda 2600i 4x4 used with just over 100k on it
  7. It seems like lately, the dealerships dont want your trade-ins. If you do want to trade it in, they give you well below Blue Book value. When my wife bought a new Subaru the end of last year we chose to do a private sale rather than trade in. We got about $3k for a 05 OB with around 250k on it, never would have gotten that much from the dealership
  8. I can contact oddcomp if you wish, he might make a appearance here if you have some questions

    I once used a XT seat as a gaming chair
  10. 2013 Crosstreks have oil consumptions issues. With that low a mileage I would assume thats the case with this one. Make sure its been addressed before buying
  11. Ah, Rockauto also has the seal! https://www.rockauto.com/en/catalog/subaru,1981,brat,1.8l+h4,1267657,transmission-manual,shift+shaft+seal,8808
  12. Sounds like someone installed Monroe or Gabriel air shocks. You can replace them with like or the correct shocks, Rockauto has the stock ones - https://www.rockauto.com/en/catalog/subaru,1981,brat,1.8l+h4,1267657,suspension,shock+absorber,7556 As for the shaft seal, you may need to remove it to get the numbers from it so it can be matched
