Re: 86 Subaru Leone

That's cool you can use BRZ parts :) Regarding the shifter, I've been happy with mine.

I think the reason people usually go with oversize pistons is the cylinders sometimes aren't perfectly round after time. They become slightly ovaled and the boring out brings them back to basically perfect again.

Here's a table of parts, bam now we have a rad car. lol.

Thank goodness you're better at documenting things that a lot of people.
