  1. Thank you! That will be a bit of a beast! I will keep you all posted with the project. My donor Spec. B is now ready to be taken away. I've fully stripped the car. Have got some parts for sale now 😉 Andrew
  2. It really is 🙂 I'll be starting a YouTube channel to showcase my project and will be posting here. I plan to use as much of the Subaru electronics as I can. Watch this space!
  3. Thank you! Yes you have it correct! Well done. That shows serious car spotting skills! It's my1992 Alpine A610 - 3L V6 Turbo 🙂 Andrew
  4. Thank you so much! Good to be here. I'll definitely look into mapping out the ABS module. Nope - guess again on the car 😉 Wrong country of manufacture is the clue! Andrew
  5. Oh and prizes to anyone that manages to identify the car in the bottom-right of the picture with the bus in it. It's the car I fitted the DIY ECU into...
  6. Hi All, I'm pleased to be here! I've just started a major project! I'm fitting a Legacy Outback 3.0R Spec B engine, and a Subaru 5-speed gearbox into a 1971 VW Bay Window Bus! I'm planning to post updates in various places and showcase the project on YouTube. Stay tuned! I hope the project is of interest here. My main area of concern is how to work with can-bus to fool the ECU that the ABS module is still in play (it won't be). I'm experienced with vehicle electronics, having done a DIY standalone ECU project in the past, but haven't worked with can bus before. I have both the bus and the donor Subaru. I picked the Subaru up at the weekend. It took over an hour and a half to load it on the trailer due to the accident damage. The front wheels didn't turn as most of the front suspension had been removed. And the owner's driveway was gravel and mud. Not conducive to using wheel dollies or an engine crane! I've already removed the engine from the Legacy. I've noticed a few missing parts. Time to get the wallet out. Thanks, Andrew
