I was kinda waiting to compile a complete build thread before revealing my lifted rig v2.0


But since this thread is here.....I'll at least post a roll call.


Here is my 84 GL wagon.



LIFT: 6" home built by previous owner. Modified and Strengthened by HighGuys.


ENGINE:1995? Impreza EJ18 Longblock.(thanks to Mellow65 for the great deal on it) ECU, Intake, and harness from '93 Legacy 2.2




265/70/16 in these pics. Redrilled Tacoma wheels Great but only for sand.


215/75/15 Snow tires for this winter. Hope to have 225/60/16 for next winter.


235/75/15 mudders will go on next summer. Mounted on Narrow offset rims for front, deep offset for rears. This is to compensate for my wider EA82 front subframe.




Of course the EA82 Front end. Crossmember, Contol arms, radius rods, axles.......


mounted to modified EA81 Radius rod plate. Swaybar removed, plate extended and angled up to meet body and extra mounting ear welded on (bolts into captive nut used for Auto trans crossmember, unused with 4spd)


Modified Gen 1 Skidplate. Extended to bolt to crossmember, and reinforced with a few strips of old mustache bar metal.:grin:


EA82 SPFI aircleaner box and SPFI air intake used along with extra legacy air intake and some Schedule 40 ABS 2" pipe to make high mount air cleaner and Snorkle


Fan relay wire interupted and run to a Single Pole/Double Throw with Center OFF switch. This allow the ECU to control the Fan normally when swithc is in one position. Or I can ground the wire and trigger the relay with switch in the other position. Or with center OFF Fan can be defeated for water crossing.


270 OHM resistor parrallel on temp sender wire to correct EJ resistance curve to EA gauge.


EJ idiot light sender wired to OP gauge on dash. Needle pegs high on start, then drops to zero when pressure builds. If I ever see the needle raise while driving I know somethings wrong :lol:
