What a mess this week was !.. after losing a brake line to rust it was time to strip this wagon down and start phase 1 of the project.

who ever owned this car before me just didn't like to grease anything ! :mad: cv axles where rust/weld to the rear diff and hubs ! disaster

front axles where some knock off junk crap that had to be cut off !.. axle looked new and at 100kms the front would shake like I had all my rims and tires unbalanced !




Oem Subaru front brakes, rotors, bearings, seals, bolts. cv axles all re done with oem boots clamps and grease, also kyb shocks installed, whiteline 20mm sway bar.

Image


Oem Subaru rear disc turbo brakes conversion rebuilt with all new parts, bearings, bolts and XT6 rear arms with the 20mm sway bar and new kyb shocks.

Image


rear has all the bushings for that tight feeling like my white sedan with the xt6 moustache bar for the bigger bushings, braided brake lines all around.

Image





how does is drive so far... just amazing what new brakes bushings and shocks can do to a car feel.. 100km+ feels smooth as butter !... the motor is now the weak link and needs more power to over come the good handling with stopping power.

thanks Josh.. its just my DD with a little extra stuff.... need to swap it soon with a NA 2.5 motor for that extra cheap fun lol.






























so since I wont be needing any of my hsd coil overs on my sedan I decided to use them all on the wagon.

so after thinking about it I came up with this ice cream cone cup idea... the front hub on the old subarus had a slide in shock like a ball joint and bolt holding it in...

got a machine shop to wip up a cup that slides in my stock hub and he made threads so
I can add coil overs in the top.. there is also a hole in the bottom so I can adjust the coil overs with a allen key...

the rear ill use spherical bearings and a new top hat I got coming.

That's a very cool solution to retrofit new parts to the old subie.

lol I surprised my self looks like it will work out well, once my other car comes out I can swap the ohlins for the hsd and use the hsd on the wagon... another couples weeks ill pull it out and see if the plan works..

I didn't want to change hubs and brakes on the wagon that's why I decide to make that cup thing..
















so instead of breaking the bank in making a rear top mount, I had some tein top hats kicking around and decided to use the centre section that un-bolts and holds the spherical bearing in place.
the bearing need to be replaced and the aluminium ring busted so I got my machine shop to make me new new rings with 6 point 30mm socket on it.

Image


ill get the same hole size drilled in my stock hat and weld it in place and get it powder coated so it last long time.

Well since I have a ton of subaru parts collecting dust and rust lol... ill use what I have accumulated over the years to make something simple and fun as my daily driver..

EJ22T block rebuilt all stock
EJ20k DOHC heads with EZ30 shimless buckets
S204 Oil cooler
V8-V9 twin scroll turbo
Vipec/link plug in ecu
91 Turbo Legacy 5mt wiring hole thing front to back Stock
91 Turbo Legacy 5mt 3.900
V8 STi rear R180 3.900 diff
XT6 Oem radiator Spal fans


should be fairly light and with a good power band pretty quick daily driver..



first think on order is clean the EJ20k heads then off to the machine shop for a CNC clover less chamber.

so i decided to cheat and I got a JDM WRX NB editon swap with a 5mt 4.444 r160 with AVCS heads

i swapped out the intake manifold with a spare V8 STi and intercooler that i had kicking around

she fits like a glove and will have A/C

Image


all most done now ready to bring it to my buddy Nam at NVauto for a nice clean stock ecu wiring job so it runs for a very long time

all most looks oem lol

so here is my new ECU in place and super clean job from my buddy Nam at NVauto
Image

and of course I have OBD 2 now lol.. simple easy spot to put it in all most looks factory
Image


dont want to but if i want to cool the intercooler something has to give.. maybe maybe front mount the top mount so it looks stealth out on the street..

Image

Image


so after getting all the wires and the car running last is the exhust set up.. here we have the oval 3" tube so it dosent scrap and then to the CoastFab muffler all is 304 SS tig welded at NVauto

Image


so old school Subaru had the oil pressure on the dash, so I really wanted to get it to work so I have a gauge in the car.. after try many different ways I said F it off to the machine shop to cut this pipe thread down to the proper oil plug size..

top is original part bottom is after, fits like a glove and works perfect in the dash now

so after getting the car all done I had a problem with my R160 WRX 4.444 axles popping out the diff because there to short.. had to raise the rear and not drive around corners so fast to keep the axles in place..
Image


so after building my other Leone with the V9 STi 6mt and R180 3.900 diff and having no problems at all.. I decide the only way to make this work easy is to find the most rarest diff Subaru made R180 4.444 = GC8 22B or TypeRA-R GC8.

some how some way the local JDM shops in Canada had one on had that no body wanted :D


22B R180 4.444 mechanical Monster !

also got my anttic rims 4x140 machine hub rings so no more shakes at 100kms and beyond
