do you make a bracket up top ? i was thinking a nice thick plate of aluminum should hold it from bucking.

Unfortunately I wasn't the one that did the conversion... and I no longer have the car so I can't go out and look.

 

I'll dig through my old pictures tonight and see if I might have something...

MY GOD...... :burnout::burnout::slobber:

 

I'm just stunned by how good this build is coming along..

 

fyi from all that I've researched the AWIC pump should be on the lowest side; ie near the bottom feed of the radiator..

 

I'm really looking forward to seeing this run..

This, those pumps are designed to push fluid, not pull it. Just like a fuel pump.

 

 

Also, that vacuum canister is fairly crucial to making the HVAC system work. ;)

ya i could not find what the canister did in the books what does it really do ? so it controls the heater controls ? so i need to put it back in a different spot i take it !

 

which sensor controls the turbo on the dash ?

 

 

 

Bosch 044 fuel pump, need some angle fitting and done.

I think it's s shame to gut the Leg, but to each their own.

 

It is a shame to see a Subaru taken apart, but this car is gonna be so much more awesome when it is done, its soooo clean, and such a clean install, it looks perfect!

Okay, I've had enough popcorn now. Time to let the cat out of the bag..

 

I can't argue about it looking very nice, I'm just partial to first gen Legacy's.

 

It's not a Legacy lol :Flame:

So I have two questions.

 

1. How did you get the mustache bushings out of the mustache?

2. Where are you in Hamilton? I am ironically in Burlington right now and odd as it sounds I would love to see this?
