Most legacy's IIRC correctly are 4.11 and that car shoulda come stock with a 3.9 so they probably wont fit.

 

How much do you know about this car? Just curious, sounds like it was a project started by someone else, which could prove ugly in the future.

You will have to go by Model number sticker on the transmission to determine the diffs ratio.

 

Marshall, only Automatic Legacys had 4.11 gears. All Manual Legacys have 3.9 gears. 1996-'99 Outback Autos have 4.44, Manual Outbacks have 4.11

I dont know a lot about this car, but it was a turbo auto with 4 wheel disc brakes. the po told me he put a 92 thru 94 legacy 5 speed in. So if I under stand right with the 4.1 rear dif and the lego 5 speed that should work.

Did you make it tie into the forward crossmember? I'm thinking if not, that mount is going to rock up and down with accel/deccel force.

 

I would definately tie it to the front crossmember too, like the factory EJ trans mounts.
