I picked up a 94 turbo Legacy last winter for $1500. It had 134k miles. Replaced the coolant temp sensor and had the rear oil separator plate changed. I've put nearly 10k miles on it since and it runs like a freaking champ.

Old Subarus run forever. They tend to rust out before the engines die.

So by the pics that are posted it looks as if the road is in rough condition. Is this something I want to take my STi on? Don't get me wrong, I'm always looking to take her off road but it's usually recently graded roads with long sweeping curves. I have a truck with which to get crazy.

Has anybody watched Block's rally lab video? That's the type of road I'm looking for and I heard it's somewhere in park city. Does anyone know where I could find a road like that?

This one was rough and snowy at the time. I think any car could make it at a decent ride height. Lances car was slammed and he made it up that. We turned around when we met the deep snow last time.

Does the whole road have huge ruts in it? I see that an STi and a lowered grey WRX made it up it. I want to rally a bit more than rock climb if you know what I'm saying? Got any other pics? This really does look fun and I'm definitely in.

5 Tooele Area Drives - Middle Canyon - South Willow Road
Take Vine Street from Main Street and head east until Vine becomes Middle Canyon Road. You are now driving into the Oquirrh Mountains. At the summit, return by the same route or continue east into the Salt Lake Valley through Butterfield Canyon. This route also provides access to the Bingham Canyon Copper Mine overlook.

The majority of the road on the west side of Butterfield pass is paved. On the eastern side, the road is dirt and washboarded. This route is generally steep and portions have narrow switchbacks. A four-wheel drive or high clearance vehicle is recommended.

The South Willow Road originates six miles south of Grantsville and winds west through the Wasatch-Cache National Forest for about eight miles to the Deseret Peak trailhead. The first half of this backway is paved, the second half is not. Although the road is rough and steep, it is passable in a passenger car in good weather. Ask locally about road conditions and weather before attempting this route

It threw a CEL on occasion for coolant temp and rear O2. The cts is a known issue on these cars. Another potential buyer told the seller that the car had a blown turbo because of the rough run so he knocked $300 off the price. The temp sensor is a $20 part and is easily replaced.

For the plate I took it to a mechanic. It dripped oil from the rear of the engine making me think it was the rear main seal. I guess the old Legacies used a plastic separator plate though that tends to get brittle and crack with age. Replacing it with a metal plate solved the problem.

Been driving this one for a while now and grew up to not to far away. It is stupid fun but the whole paved side is very narrow with a cliff and so is the upper half of the dirt section. the lower half and from what i can see where all the pics are taken is the awesome bit. Very tight winding blind corners. The only problem with it is alot of people camp in the bottoms and ride 4 wheelers up or take their jeeps and what not. I am most likely in. Also my 88 buick skylark did this well over 2 dozen times and if it made it so can anything.


If anyone has questions about anything rally related in utah send me a PM. I'll get you the info you want, and we're about ready to start our winter rallyx season.

I used to do this all the time in my jeep and subaru. Lots of fun! Maybe I will take the jeep up haha. Even though the 4wd is broken, it will still make it.

sorry guys i kinda jumped the meet date all i can do is think about rallying, so me and my gf went and drove up butterfield last night...... lets just say that everyone that goes will make it up it is paved all teh way to the top. bbbut when we got up there to our amazement we found some freshly graded virgin dirt/gravel roads i mean no one has hardly driven on them so what did we do we rallyed the **** outta them got some pics and video of it.

so i can say now that you can count me in on nov 6th **** i bet i go up a dozen more time before then these roads are AMAZING to drive on.....that is if you can keep up with me

heres some pics







and the video, first one is me around some corners im going about 40 45 into this first one


and this second is of us going down the road into tooele, the cam ran out of room so it only about half way down the road we reach speeds here of about 55 sorry its so shakey my gf did her best to hold it still, i dont have a mount yet and i dont 300 extra bucks for a go pro hd
