the gobstopper has a shaved and tucked engine bay.

my gc is going through shaving and tucking as we speak...ill have it done by the end of this month, still trying to figure out how to clean up the abs lines..might have to just get rid of abs all together.

i alsho shaved and tucked my brothers twin turbo 5.0 mustang..looks ****ing sick!...all you see is 1 vacumn line and the injector plugs.

i came from the honda crowd to subaru and im suprised at the lack of good DIY in the subaru crowd.

It is very nice to see this thread here at nasioc. I would love to see shaved and tucked bays as the new suby trend. However it would take up too much time and effort for me to undertake this process.

why is D money crazy?

tucking the engine bay is somthing anyone with common sense can do in thier free time on a weekend.

shaving the engine bay requires a little more balls/ experience as it requires the know how of welding, bodywork and paint...most people will pay for this but some of us do it for a living.

the new Import Tuner out right now has a decent - not great - article on exactly this. personally, i feel like it's a lot easier to shave a flat-top motor bay than it would be to make ours look less cluttered and sloppy.

i too would like to see some tucked bays, but i feel like it would take a lot to strip down a wrx engine bay.

Wiht the Subaru engine bays its more about hiding and making it look nice. Most stuff can be tucked though. I am doing it right now in my Legacy. YOu have to remove all of the front body panels... ie.... hood, front bumper, both fenders, grill, headlights. It takes alot of ingenuity and patience. I am taking my time. I figure I could do it in a weekend, but i want it done right. SO I figure good couple weeks working on it alittle bit at a time will net me an awesome result.

Thanks for sticking up for me, but I think he might have been kidding.

lol lol

On a side note, it should be super easy to do a wrx engine. Think about it. On the right side, you delete the window washer fluid tank, put the battery in the trunk, and remount the fuse box under the dash. Sand it down, weld it up, bondo it so it's all done smoothly and prep for paint. For the left side, you delete the factory boost solenoid, move the power steering pump, and do the same process you did to the right side. You either get a v-mount or reversed manifold to delete the piping from going up on the sides, and a rotated turbo kit with a 4" inlet, blow through maf on the i/c pipe, and run a screen or small intake on the turbo. CAKE!

If I have to be the first, I will. I am so into this look it's not even funny. I mean, im not going to go overboard, im just trying to clean it up a little bit. My dad gave me the idea after seeing his hotrod finished, and looking at the engine bay and seeing a fully polished 540ci just chilling with nothing else, just the MOTOR! It will take time, but once I finish up the motor and turbo kit, I will go to town.

For the most part, doing the body work to the shock towers and fender wells should be easy. I have a friend that welds and I am always at the body shop doing work on my car, so it could probably get done in a matter of a weekend or something. Who knows, but again, I was really making this thread to see if anyone else thought of it or has done it before.

Both look good, but those little holes and unsmoothed edges would bother me. I want this thing to look SMOOTH!

its all about extending wires and tucking the harness so its run as cleanly as possible.

battery goes in the trunk, ABS gets deleted, fuse box goes behind glove box yadda yadda yadda

its pretty much common sense and just using your own best judgment...

ill post pics of my work in progress in a week or so.

thought i would post some quick pics of some tucking and cleaning up i did in one afternoon. it isnt great and has a lot of work left. planing to reverse the manifold and relocate the fuse box and hide some other wires but not bad for a couple of hours i think.
