Default The odd ball

Well. my name is Keaton. I'm in Stoughton,WI. iv put a lot of time and money into my project like most of you. but have the extreme need to do things differently. hence project odd ball. and well. prolly the only one on here with a vehicle like this.
well. enough of this talk, let's get down to why we are here. the vehicle.

'97 Subaru Legacy GT
picked it up in october of '11 and its never been the same since.
I have only one picture of it stock.
Huge modification list. the only stock prats anymore is the body as I am swapping in an H6 engine in place of the H4 and a rebuilt trans.
enough talk. here ya go.

Start:










3 wheeling it






and how she sits now







Enjoy

THanks guys. lotta time and research into this one. also. with the new engine after i port it out and all ill be pushing about 260 crank up from the stock 230. also the engine that was in it came with 165crank and with what i had done it was pushing about +180chp. so the new engine should be a healthy bump. also the particular model i have has final drive diff ratios of 4.44's so it should help when ever i get the engine in and hopefully lift another 6" and throw some 31's on her.

Older ones usually put forester (fozzy) springs on them, but they ride stiff.

I used megan racing coilovers meant for an outback and jacked it up about 1.5-2" over my stock height. Also gained about another 1" from tires.

It should be rolling around Traverse City right now, if the older couple that bought it didn't crash it or kill it.
