How does she drive now with the new ecu setup? I've ran both the revtronix and the robtune, the Rev got better fuel economy, but was temperamental to say the least.

I am pretty ignorant when it comes to ecu stuff. I can bolt/ unbolt and swap parts and follow write ups but I don't have much knowledge in electronics department. I can say swapping the ecu has increased the rev limiter and changed the parameters to make more power. Definitely an improvement from stock but I do seem to be having an issue.

Awesome! Great ride just in time for summer! You may see me driving around, I have your car's twin, white but with gold RS 6-spoke wheels.

Grabbing parts for N/A lift (aka The Green Turd) and picked up 5 speed tranny, driveline, rear diff with 4:11 and pedal assembly. Local pick n pull doesn't have much for selection. Going to try to do a swap. Think I blew a head gasket so I have to pull the engine anyway.

So, after swapping outback struts, front and rear cross member spacers and transmission member (on the Green Turd), I was having issues with the drive line rubbing at rear cross member for diff due to angle caused by lowering tranny. I ended up climbing under and building spacers for just about everything connected to the subframe.

Also, Tapatalk wants to charge money to upload pics so I found I can just post a link. I hope it works.

Heads gaskets on, engine all put back together and tranny mated. Now i need to install pedal assembly, rear diff and drop everything in.
