well the sedan is out of storage and ready to get the upgrade steering rack

Image


half of the wagon came home lol, guess its time to install stuff

Image

Image


so we know the motor and transmission fit but this little turbo has a issue, had a feeling this was going to happen but there is a fix :banana:. Borger Warner makes a shorter wastegate and bracket for this very reason

found a original front lip in Japan so it looks like the sedan

Image

Image



was time to take care of the intercooler and like the sedan I got a nice BELL intercooler made up

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

the bumper plastic isn't bolted up that's why it sits like that or else it will sit straight, I have a brand new skin coming in

got the turbo sorted out so the wastegate won't hit the wall

Image

Image

Image


SS feed lines and fittings so never rust

Image


got my PROvent 200 all set up so it can catch all the oil


Image



also add the radiator cap on the radiator like the factory had it so its clean and works flawlessly

Image



2 x 12" opal fans made in Italy, the driver side has a bigger HD motor then the slim passenger side

these Subarus don't really have a proper toe adjustment so I came up with a heim joint with threads so I can adjust the Alignment much easier, and its all made out of SS so it will never rust

original subaru leone
Image



Version 1 : hard to adjust live on the alignment rack.

Image


Ver II perfection ! ;)

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image



made this long time ago for the bushings in the arms now the wagon will have all pillow ball heim joint ride like the sedan

Amazing work as always Nico!!!!!

The SS pistons and dowel pins for the 4 & 2 pot calipers, were those custom made or is there some place I can buy them?

Thanks!

Amazing work dude !

Ya I just redid my front 4-pots, would have loved those. Pins were rusted with divots that caused irregular wear.

And I gotta get me that Provent 200 ! :smt103
