 Post subject: Another Subaru guy here.
PostPosted: Sun Jun 07, 2009 9:44 pm 
Hi every body, another Subaru guy here. I found this place trolling Google for old pics. And noticed Kostamojen's FF-1 project was here and after reading it for a bit, I thought I'd drop in a say hello.

I put around town a 1983 Subaru GL 4WD Hatchback. the old beast has almost 200k on it, but still runs strong.

Hello kind sir, the FF-1 is looking good.

Yeah I've been enjoying the GL quite a bit lately. I'm looking into converting it to RWD and giving it a 3.5 ratio WRX LSD. right now it's 3.9, would prob get slight better millage. that way. (having the RPM @ 4k when going 70mph kinda sucks.)

I'd also like to source a 2WD hatch at a bone yard so i can get bits to lower it. Otherwise it'll be custom job.

70 at 4k sounds like lo range.. or slipping worm wheel.

my own at 3600 is 92mph.
maxxing oil pump is still 70 something (2850).
It gets taller gears after welding the rockers...believe me or not. 8)

actually boxer3main that is about right for the 4sp 4wd tranny, they didn't have the nicety of 5th gear like you do
