    1986 Subaru Leone STi Turbo

    1986 Subaru GL-10 Turbo AKA Leone (italiano)

    we start of with a stock 1986 Subaru GL-10 FWD TURBO orig 28,000kms 17398.miles. weight is 910kg 2002lb car !!



    the parts car for awd and 5x100 86 xt6



    so what we have hear is to add the 4WD system into one of these cars, those are 20MM sway bars, above the sway bars is what holds the diff, about that is a mix and match of old and new to hold the STi 6mt, above that is a updated version of control arms to hold the 5x100 knuckle.



    rear axle XT6 for the R180 3.900, there is a trick to these where i mix the outer with the new style inners to run a R180. or i could just stay light weight and put a R160 in it.


    cusco motor tranny mnt


    ARP head studs, Cam & Crank sensor new oem

    so got a little oem new parts in today xt6 wheel bearings, xt6 steering tie rod, mustache bar bushings, and new diff support. also have 2006 wrx 2pot rear backing plates, but i sent them out to a friend's machine shop to make a ring for the centering ring


    new turbo set up full race twin scroll







    so parts list is
    VER 8 Sti complete
    Vi-PEC V88
    EXEDY ?? dont know yet maybe multi plate to hold the power
    SPARCO seats: maybe, kind of want it stock but need support lol
    Rims: gc8 and volk jdm if i can find them
    Tire's : RACE SLICK lol for evey day haha !!
    new rotor pads that wont stop this much power to weight lol

    my rear control arms, that me and my dad had to make a tool becuase no one on the plant has one lol



    little thermal coat so then i can wrap them

    got some tubes to make my wastegate pipes longer away from everything


    Little powder coat action


    Got my 2006 wrx backing plates all fixed up so they can fit on the hub the xt6 hubs as instructed from Suberdave !


    So I went and picked up a Jdm spec c version 8 (maybe type RA?) motor swap Ej207DW7ER TY856WB6JA for heads and tranny diff and way ever else I need to twist my leone in to pretzel lol





    Also I was driving to see the boys at Nvauto and I seen a gc impreza on top of another car scrap yard ! so I found the rims I wanted for a steal 250. So I sent them out to the sand blasters to get ready for the powder coating. I'm thinking world rally blue color for the rims



    started stripping for what i need



    SUBARU TECNICO INTERNATIONAL
    EJ22T built bottom end, JDM EJ207 STi Version 8 Type RA heads all oem !



    finished wrapping my headers and turbo

    Re: 1986 SUBARU LEONE STi TURBO

    Franz crazy at work on my wiring, this is only half the paper work on my stuff.




    and the pin for the wiring he is doing for my hole car !



    r180 read for service !


    my brand new Bosch 044, these fittings are from the UK for the ford cosworth ! who would have guessed the Leone had the same set up !!


    my hsd front camber plates came in ! thank you JRP for letting me do what i had to do to get my suspension all sorted out !!.












    the front is a bit to low, which will come up after corner balance and aliment get worked out. i wouldnt want the honda crowd thinking i want to race lol.

    i didnt want to add this but i need a bigger opening or else i could not use 2nd 4th 6th or R gear !.. so STi plate with boot, just waiting for the bolts to come in now.





    AWIC pipes and other bits which is moving along nice and smooth. couple back order stuff which is killing me ! summer is all most done.











    clutch line made fluid and bled, ready to go



    this picture is just crazy all in its self !!! it makes me not even want to drive this car and put it away for another 26years !!!!

    Franz Diebold wiring Diebold Autosport ! its just so beautiful i am speechless !! thank you Franz.
