Tims 93 SS

Post by 93legacylsleeper » Sun Jan 02, 2011 4:02 am

So a little history about me and my Subie. I statred out with a 93 legacy L of which I have few photos. At the time I couldnt believe the deal, a 5speed AWD Subaru Sedan, this was right before was moving to Tahoe in 2006. I did a few minor modifications and then some research and made the discovery that Legacys came factory equipped with a turbo. So the hunt began. I sold my first Legacy and got a 240sx but missed my Subie immediately. While looking almost every day on Craigslist for about 2 Years, I found my Baby. The offer was way too good to pass up $1500 and a plane ticket to L.A. and I could be driving back a 93 Legacy Turbo 5speed 25th Silver, Black interior. I flew to L.A on literally a wing and a prayer. I knew the moment I was picked up at the airport that this was gonna be a car that I never sold. I was in love. Since then the car has been a work in progress. I always wanna do more than my budget allows but its coming along.

definitely a blast to drive its more of a top end turbo. just running to 13 psi @ the moment. can get all four wheels to light up. just need a ej20g ecu but thats in the plans for the higher rev limiter. (7,200 rpms).

Nice video! Loving the sound of the car and that road looks pretty fun. Twisty roads are my favorite.

I haven't got the city lights to work yet or the leveling feature. Just got them installed with the stock bulbs but am waiting to go pick up some new bulbs. The lighting difference is HUGE compared to what I had... Definitely recommended. Ill get some pics of the beam pattern and cut off when i get new bulbs :mrgreen:

You didn't happen to own an e30 at some point did you?

Those lips are pretty popular with e30 owners

So I just installed my Group N motor mounts... Nice improvement. A little tough at first to install. I think it took me a little less than 1.5 hours by myself in the ground with a floor jack and hand tools. Definitely the worst part is getting the rear bolts on the mounting plate on. then just a matter of coaxing the main bottom bolt in the slot. Id recommend this for sure if you car has got 175xxx plus and you have some jerking issues when you on/off throttle. Worth the 100 bucks just wish i would have done the trans mount at the same time.
