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 !!
Image
Image

the parts car for awd and 5x100 86 xt6
Image


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.

Image

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.
Image

cusco motor tranny mnt
Image

ARP head studs, Cam & Crank sensor new oem

Spare EJ22T Built @ SUBARU TECNICO INTERNATIONAL

well Franz has come and gone and it was a busy time while he was here. i had a couple problems that i need to fix to make it work right. so i could not get my dyno time :(


My grocery list !




1... i need to cut vents in the hood because this subaru intake temps are way to hot ! :firedevil:


2... i need to make a safety strap on the drive shaft, also add a little better support on the rear diff so it does not end up on the tarmac !


3.... move my water coolers in a better place



what we have now is a 17psi road tune that to be honest is just crazy to even go to 25psi how fast this car is right now. i am kind of glad i didn't get all the power at once its a tricky car to drive that's for sure.

once i fix the problems then 25psi dyno tune will be done, ill push for the end of the season but no promise its getting late and the car needs to be put away soon.

so in order to lower my intake temps with out cutting my hood i sacrificed my a/c system :( .

by getting rid of the a/c system i gained just about 20 degrees off the 60 degree iat temp, out side temp is 20 degree.

i just could not cut the hood with out trying the last step, a massive awic cooler (26x7x2). if this does not cool my intake then i am busting the saw out and going to town on the stock hood or the brand new OEM one i have laying around that i picked up for this problem.

Image

so as of now car runs good at 17psi i am a drifter out of control with awd lol. my gas tank sprung a leak do to the vent line sensor not working should have un plugged it like i did for my legacy ! instead it split it self down the side of the tank like a pop can.

a new OEM subaru one is on its way so i can put more then 10bucks in the car and make my way to see Franz and get it tuned on the dyno by the end of this fall weather.

Image


Image
Image
Image
Image


so i went to Washington D.C to visit Franz and he did a little work on the car and he took me to see the crazy city which is just amazing to see and i cant wait to go back for part 2 of the city !!

Abraham Lincoln says hello
Image

Franz's one of a billion cool tool's he owns !
Image

my leone getting all its numbers crunched to perfection !
Image

little vid

franz made me a new shorter pipe from scratch in a matter of minutes, and he gave me the fancy clamps to hold it right. we also put in oil temp, oil pressure, fuel pressure sensors to watch whats going and everything is good !
Image


so much went down this week here is some extra pics from the dyno session, the guys at IMA Motorsports know there Porsche's it was Porsche heaven, i was sourounded buy flat six's with huge turbos making stupid power every where i looked such nice people at IMA Motorsports !

all these porsche made me think why am i messing with this four bangger when subaru made the best six which is a ej22 with a extra 2 lol.
Image

Image

Image

Image

looks good. my father in law had one (not turbo) and it was a good daily driver but then i think the head gasket went bad and he didnt get it fixed before he passed away. i didnt have the stuff to fix it. glad to see there are people out there keeping these cars nice and being taken care of.
