Stock is boring. 8)

It still has the stock looks and character, but I'd bet it's a damn sight more fun to drive now. :twisted:

Nico, that is one awesome car! Would have loved to have one just like that over here now. I bet it's a hoot on snow. We have plenty of unsalted ice tracks right now. :)

so i got one of my set of STi TE37 VOLK sand blasted ready to get painted a colour that i have not picked yet, i'm thinking a nice glossy jet black but will see soon.

Image

Image


also some oem subaru parts have come in, new XT6 front control arms. i have to problem's that i need fixing with these. 1 is the bushing end rubs in my subframe arm, 2 i dont have camber in the front.

Image

Image

Image

ill be adding something like these to the arms so i gain in both aspects

Image


also i have ordered another rear diff support mount, which i will be adding a new bushing in the middle to help with the flexing in the rear R180 diff. if your driving behind my car, as i shift in a gear ! you can see the diff flex, which all most looks like its going to fall out lol.

so i found another set of JDM Subaru FHI 4 pot 2 pot, i had them sand blasted and now powder coated red. i got new oem seals to rebuild them & some GODSPEED Brakes stainless steel pistons to rebuild them with, also need to paint the letter's on the calipers white and find a sticker for the rear. ill most likely sell the other gray set that are on the leone or use them for the next build that's going on all ready

Image


also got some nice STi Magnesium Valve Rocker Cover Set coming in, very excited for these all ways wanted them.

Image


also its all most time to order my new turbo the S300SX FMW so i can make my goal of 400whp on a dyno dynamics dyno.

if they don't fit guess ill have to put them for sale :(

so this is a rear 1986 Subaru control arm, when adding wide wheels with low offsets like Subaru loves it can rub on the rear arm on this old car.

Image

here you can see how much room i have to play if I put on a 17x7.5JJ ET53 stock subaru wheels that can fit Brembo brakes, also the front is not like this its normal Subaru style up front on this car so any wheel is ok

Image

Image


so what have I come up with ! simple easy is flip the arm around to the other side ! looks like the little Leone can put the rubber down to the ground now, 225/45/17 and i could use STi Brembo brakes now for the extra stopping power.

Image

Image

Hey !!!!! why stop there ???? Lol... lets pull out a STi 22B BBS wheel and see if we can add the monster wheels on the Leone so 235/40/17 17x8.5JJ ET48 even fits !! guess its time to show some people how its done on the track this year !

Image

Image




now i am really excited to pull the car out and see if this all works out perfect.

Turbo Seal Clamps

Constant Tension Turbo Seal Clamps - With a convoluted heat-treated band that provides spring-like tensioning effects for thermal cycling hose applications.

Murray’s unique “DUAL BEAD SHIELD” concentrates band-sealing pressure, increasing performance up to 30% compared to standard smooth liners. Flanged edges protect soft hose compounds from abrasion and wear.

well today was a perfect day to pull it out and start the work on the car, lots of rain wash the salt away so why not bring the car home.

my new black wheels that are so black i cant get a good pic of them lol

GC8 VOLK Rays STi 5x100 16x7 ET 53 with the proper stickers for how ever long they last lol.

Image

Image

Image

Image


also i was going to use these on my Legacy EG33 build, but ill use them here first. Whitline KSB751 will reduce rear-end float particularly under acceleration... why not fits like a glove lol

made for the new style subaru 1989 to 2007, subaru sure does love re using something that works well over many years.

well the new BW s300sx FMW fits and is in, along with the JDM STi magnesium valve covers.

also had to take the timing belt off and pulleys so I could get to the oil feed line for the AVCS and get the screens out !.. pain in the butt but i had to get it done.

good thing I have room still for the 4" cone aem filter and set up for this turbo.

I had also changed the vacuum lines for the dual wastegates to hi temp silicone to handle the heat stress in that area.

just need to wait for the turbo pipe I ordered so I can complete it all.

Image


Image


Image



and the new brakes set up with stainless steel pistons better for heat transfer on the fluid
