Default 1987 mid engine EG33... now with driving video

Introducing the Subercoupe

Started out live as a FWD 5 speed, SFI 1.8L N/A



Now with:
50% more Cylinders (H6 EG33)
100% more Rear Wheel Drive
100% more Subercharger (Eaton M90)
100% more tail pipes (dual Exhaust)
100% more body Kit (stock RX body kit)
100% more tuneability (standalone ECU)
1000X more awesomeness!!!
and the engine has been moved back about 10 feet...

Took it to the tuner yesterday. the clutch held up for 2 pulls to 4K, then started to slip big time... guess a stock EJ18 Clutch will not hold the torque of an EG33... looking for a new clutch... and trans...








First Startup:


Real Quick Dyno pull with clutch slip...



more pictures to come... I promise you that...

That is a pretty insane set up you got there. More details would be nice like the engine set-up. Are you running a stock shortblock? That intake manifold looks pretty nice too, did you fab that up yourself to accommodate the supercharger?

What are your intentions for this car? I'm assuming it will be tracked judging by the cage! This thing will make one hell of a track car!

Details details details!!

this is just a fun project car, i may take it to the track when its done, but the cage was more for a foundation for the "fire wall"

right now it is a stock EG33 long block that i bought from a junk yard.

and yes i made the manifold to accommodate the supercharger. not bad for some exhaust tubing and a cheep walmart flux core welder... and it has no leaks...

and as promised here are a few pics from the big northwest subaru show.

That's awesome. What engine management are you running? I have been out of the SVX scene for a while now so I am a little out of the loop.

Hey, what a fun/neat project! How did the link engine management work with the S/C eg33? Looks like you are running stock ignition too? Are you running stock crank sensor timing sprocket or did you add a different one? Are you running both crank sensors or just one? Looks like a lot of fun.

yeah i am running a Link G4 Extreme. it runs it with no issues as of yet.

i am running the stock crank sensor, but only using the 12 tooth gear and the cam gear. not using the other crank sensor at all.

i am using the stock coil packs. i could not find a SVX ignitor so i am using 3, 2 Channel Impreza ignitors. you can see them on the back of the intake manifold.

and yes so far it has been a whole lot of fun...

it does have a decent firewall. i just need to get some mufflers on it and it will be a daily... i don't see any point in having a car that you can't drive to work every day...

Love it! Do you have more pictures of the rear floor pan and how you are supporting the motor? Are you using a front subframe from an impreza? What did you do to eliminate the steering rack?

i will get more pictures next week when i can get it back up on a rack.

as for the engine, it is sitting in a stock Impreza cross member. it has front lower control arms, and front steering knuckles, brakes and struts.

the steering rack is still in the rear. i pulled it. tightened down the lash adjustment, so it wont move, then welded the input shaft in place, so it cant move. i will be replacing it with a solid piece before to long.

Thinking about taking it on the ferry to Bainbridge or Vashon? Might wake up the locals and give the guys at the ferry terminal something to talk about.
