If anyone wants some parts off the red svx we are starting to part it out. We need to be left with a rolling chassis (the dampers and wheels bearings are dead anyway), but everything else is game. The motor is good with 55000 miles, just missing the throttle bodies. The trans is not available.

Why do we always have to go over this one again and again?

95' with Tan interior right? You interested in a MegaSquirt2? I've halted my EG33 build on my SVX and selling off what I had lined up. Buying a new STi SE. Keeping the SVX simple and running now. Nothing fancy.

Two seperate messages. One was replying about tr STi swap and the other was to TiC.
STi swap has been brought up again and again. Just not really worth it. These are heavy cars and just cause the EJ would fit easily doesn't mean it's easy from there. Wiring would be a disaster in my opinion and for the money you could build a turbo EG with 6speed and have torque all day long.

that's my intention with my svx. I just bought a forest XT so I could have a new daily instead of the svx. its tough to try and modify car I need running 5 days a week - and shoot for quality work, i should add.

Thank you for the offer, but not at this time. I need to get the white one working first, then get the blue car running, then we can start to play with the white car.

that's true, and i agree with you, but as long as you're building the motor, a 2.5/gt35, engine/ wiring harness, would probably be easier in my opinion. and with more options. plus 450 whp is 450 whp. but as i said, a turbo flat 6 isn't anything to scoff at. 400 ft/lbs + instant spool will always be > 350 ft/lbs + lag. either way, i applaud you guys for working a pre-sti! when i was working at esx i tried so hard to convince the boss to paint our 500hp baja with a brown brat color scheme - wrap around stripes and all - and stick two jumpseats in the trunk, but they laughed at me and threw 20's on it. so i had to accept that for some people, subaru just didn't exist until the wrx came to america in 02. either way, i'm in your corner! these were the cars i tried to get my dad to buy when i was growing up! SVX's, XT turbos, and Brats! a project like this is a labor of love, and THAT'S why i'll always try to weed out and support real car guys in automotive commerce.

Very cool build/ride! I just picked a brilliant red 94 SVX yesterday and stumbled across this thread. This gives me some good ideas. I can't afford a set of STi wheels but was curious about you guy's thoughts about some Cragar Soft 8's like this.

Used STi wheels in that bolt pattern aren't to expensive if you keep your eyes peeled and those wheels are UUUUUUUUUUUUUGLYYYYYYYYYY!

Thank you! That saves me from having to drop the ceiling liner.
On mine I pulled the moon roof headliner panel off (pry from the front with the roof 1/2 open) and unbolted the roof panel to remove w/ 6-10mm bolts. I spent about 2hrs cleaning the tracks with Q-tips and simple green. I lubricated everything (the chain especially!) while moving the roof back and forth and reassembled. Did all that work pay off? For the first 3 days, not really. But after that its been working perfectly!

None. the red car is still sitting in back with the tranny out. The white car is also sitting in back, but with the bad tranny still in.

I have a full bushing set for the car along with a rear bar for it. I'll put those on when we start to work on that project. Heck, i finally just got the blue car back on the road.... Seems we don't have much time for our own cars.

Was that actually more or less than 4 years off the road for the blue car?

Better drop the compression and do bearings, rods, pistons, valves, spring, retainers, etc. Oh and make sure the heads get converted to solid buckets. The hydrolic lashers SUCK!!!

Default Great wheels

I like your Red SVX. I have the same wheels on my 96 Bordeaux LSi, and they look awesome. I'm running 225/40ZR18 Nexen N3000 tires. When I can post a thread, I'll put up some pics. I have 208K miles, and I think I just burned a head gasket. I'm having a long block installed sometime in the next month. These are fabulous cars. I bought an ebony '92 brand new. Good luck with your project! Looks great!

Fully built STi motor need to be finished and go into car
STi tranny needs rebuild
Customer SVX is getting new 4.11 tranny and rear diff
08 sti getting built motor
10 STi needs a rebuilt motor due to cracked piston
06 WRX tranny synchro job
Few others here for general bits and pieces

That's the customer car queue as of right now

On top of that we have:
Clint's STi tranny needs a rebuild
Mrs. TiC's outback needs a new steering rack

On top of all that we have the normal day to day stuff so the SVX is WAY down on the list.
