My Subaru Legacy adventure


Recommended Posts

So i should probably start a seperate build project thread, I have had my legacy since 2008. imported from Japan through my uncles garage probably one of the early ones to take an interest in these models, I wanted something a bit different than your average impreza, and a bit more subtle 280bhp and 4wd without the large spoiler and gold wheels(:hide behind couch:) and had no intention of modifying it in anyway except a remap to local fuel. As everyone on here knows that doesnt last for long.


Engine gave up not long after a good thrash around Mondello,



Was loosing oil pressure for some reason:






Self re-bore internals








So it was a tough call what to do, onwards and upwards i decided to keep her and get it rebuilt a bit stronger:

Not much to update, STI lip fitted, i decided to paint the chrome surround on the grille black as it doesnt really belong on a a Subaru i think. 










Car is going in for a full respray on Thursday so cant wake to get it back looking pretty!
