cool with all the 70s stuff on here I wasn't sure if we'd be well received or not.

it needs a lot of work and may get a newer engine down the road...

hoping that when body work and interior happens I might do one of those spiffy write up threads but that's a ways out.

Correction XT

The DL had the EA-82 H-4 not the ER-27 H-6 (which is why the XT6 was called the XT6)

But schweet and looks good with the pugs on!

Welcome! What kind of motor will you be looking into? and any plans to make it 4 or AWD?

not sure yet....

just depends on what I can find around here.

thinking the ej22 from the legacy would be cool
(I knew it wasn't an XT6 but I wasn't going to correct the admin in my third post, lol)

it handles pretty good for a front driver.

ok that's cool just find a FWD Lego tranny and it should all bolt in easily (compared to my 76 wagon lol) cause of that adapter stuff is futile when you are using it on road unlike some of the guys on the usmb

odd... my images got broken. :td:

and actually already have the tranny it's a 2wd 95 Impreza tranny.
the stubs have the same spline count as my stock axles.

I saw an RX with a rotary.... I think that would be bad ass a FWD rotary.

yeah I used to know the owner of that RX too lol that was a one off thing that the bell housing was investment casted and a custom flywheel was made for it to make it work, but I must say a EJ swap would be cool and is simple to do too
