    Red face 10 Seconds or less: The tale or a 1997 Subaru Legacy gt wagon

    As some of you may know already. This is my 1997 Subaru Legacy gt that would up in a lake earlier this winter.

    I have since bought a new daily driver http://forums.mightycarmods.com/show...500#post422500. Every day I walked past it. Looking at it, missing driving it. Months went by, until about a week ago, when I decided that I was going to restore it to its former glory... and then some. Knowing that I had a dependable daily driver meant that I could mod heavily and not worry about having to rush anything to get it done it time to drive it to work. A donor car at the local wreckers, provided my with the panels and glass to fix the body. Also the donor for a once stock wiring loom...

    sadly they would not sell me the entire car. So after replacing the fender and doors, it sat for a couple more weeks. Until I got a warm day off of work.

    I began work on the wiring.


    After realizing that I wanted to relocate the battery into the interior. I had rethink my lay out. So I decided to move things around a bit. It was also in major need of some tidying up. 2 rolls of electrical tape and several hours later. It looked something like this.


    Going to be finishing up the wiring tomorrow hopefully, the after market ECU is in and mounted. So got the hardest part out of the way. Also going to be making a nice mount for the 7 toggle switches that are going to make the car start and run.

    My plans for the interior is to relocate the battery to that corner, make a custom mount for it to fit nicely and securely. Then shield off the corner with a plexglass cover and cooling fans. Nitrous Oxyde tanks to be mounted where the seat was at one point. After everything is built I plan to install a 5 point cage, and bride seat. Might even plasti dip over the whole interior when its all done. Once solid color and have the seat a different color. Would look pretty nice I think.

    Stay tuned and follow my build to find out what I have planned for the engine, performance, and exterior.
    Hoping this is build thread worthy.

    It doesn't matter what kind of car you have, If you've put in the work, time, and money you deserve a little respect.

    today I deleted everything that was not necessary for daily use. Only left what was required to be street legal and to run.

    Then began work on the RHD conversion. Brake booster installed. pic from test fitting. welded the plate in, screws were for test fitting. Too dark out by the time I finished.

    If you are needing RHD bits, we have alot of BG legacy bits, so your doing a single turbo conversion with V3/4 gear? And using a megasquirt unit as well for tuning?

    Ive done 2 single turbo conversions on BG legacys but that was twin to single so its a little easier and means that you just need to swap some wires and can then use the WRX 4 plug ecu.

    I might be needed some RHD bits so I may just take you up on that offer! we will see how bad shipping will be first as there is quite a distance between Minnesota and New Zealand! Do you have a pay pal? and yeah, not sure which turbo I'm going with. I had a t3/t4 Garrett before. Also already have a perrin v1 fuel rail with 850cc injectors and a gss 341 fuel pump. JDM 5 speed transmission. ACT stage 4 clutch. cometic gasket set, and a set of weisco pistons. Didn't think you guys got the 2.5 litre engine? just the twin turbo 2.2?
