Legacy SS rear backing plates?

Hey everyone, just wondering if anyone knows where to buy rear backing plates for the sport sedan, I have some severely rotted ones that I want to replace so I can retain the handbrake. I am scraping a GC impreza shell that has all my goods from my old SS including the brakes and want to swap all th...

Re: 3.90 VLSD axle stubs

Just one lol. Well that doesn't help, ill have to hunt some down. I was just hoping to find a set I just did a fuel tank and rear crossmember so I thought why not toss that VLSD I had lying around too, but I guess that is out.

If anyone sees this and has some stubs let me know!!

3.90 VLSD axle stubs

I have a VLSD out of what I am assuming was a a 91 SS, and I have the old diff out of a 93 SS which is an open diff, the VLSD is missing the stubs. Will the stubs from the non VLSD diff fit into the VLSD diff or am I basically fucked?

Re: Xise's 1993 Legacy Turbo

Probably going for the 25D heads, just because they can be had for free. I don't mind the sewing machine noise, every subaru I have owned sounds like that . i would like a more agressive cam though, not sure what I can get out of regrinds vs a jdm cam.

Re: Xise's 1993 Legacy Turbo

Good info again, thank you. The heads are from a 98. I was thinking 20H cams because they are cheap, they are identical to 20G....what is the main difference between the 20k and 20g heads? I am more versed on the phase 2 heads and really know othing of the old school turbo heads.

Re: Xise's 1993 Legacy Turbo

There's not much of a difference in what you're doing vs. the dohc thread, so you can rely on that quite a bit. There's also a good thread over on SL-i.net about turboing an na engine.

Yeah i was looking in there, there is a ton of info an actually why I know what I do about the swap, but that one focuses more on the EJ20G swap although it does mention some info tidbits for the 25D.

Re: Xise's 1993 Legacy Turbo

Also it is worth mentioning that my VF39 needs a comp wheel, I got it from a kid who left a shop rag in the turbo and tried to start up his sti, it never made it through but chipped a few fins on the wheel. There are no scratches on the comp housing and the shaft has zero play side to side, very min...

Re: dankberries 1993 Legacy SS (PHOTO UPDATE! 11/11/15)

Always been a flaw of the 1st gen legacies, pretty much zero aftermarket lighting options. I have been thinking about what to do about head lamps a long time myself. I am definitely interested in what you come up with using those LEDs.

Another option that isn't boring old KYBs

Just figured i'd let you guys know about this seeing how kybs seem to be the only aftermarket choice for strut/spring combos unless you want to shell out allot of $$ for Konis. Some of you may be familiar with the Euro cars like Audis and Volvos that come stock with SACHS Supertouring struts. Well t...

Lots of stuff happened since the last post. Ended up getting the 91 Legacy wagon, the wife was driving that until just recently as her DD until we scored a killer deal on an 05 Outback XT turbo.
