I spent the last two days working on my intake manifold from an RS Legacy. So after milling of the unwanted mounts and hours and hours with a grinder in hand here's what I came up with.

I Know I have posted other pictures of the prodrive Group A Legacy and the engine bay but here it is again, this is what I wanted my intake to look like, I did decide I wanted a little less of a polished look and this is my manifold which still has the air control passage as the McRae legacy in Rothmans colors did

I spent the evening on the mill making a frame to protect my cooler that's mounted in front of the radiator, it cools the water in the intercooler, and it's vulnerable to damage and very expensive so it's worth the effort to make this frame to mount a meshscreen to protect it.

just make your own exhaust with the muffler of your choice. buying some 3 inch pipe and a muffler is much cheaper than buying a cat back or something. granted i am a fabricator.... but its a great learning experience if you can weld. and it really lets you learn the underside of your vehicle. use pie cuts if you dont want to buy mandrel bends. but yea not related to the thread. so you should have made your own thead.. alsop while we are on topic.. i have a real probelm with your username hahah

Yes, I already have some 3" mandrel bent tube and also Welding and fab equipment at my dads shop, the exhaust will be stainless, that's why I said I really only need a muffler, however at the time I posted this I was interested to know if there were any bolt on systems.
Regarding my username well now it is BC622B05STI on the Legacy forum. that is for three of the four Subarus we own, my wife has an 08 Forester XT and we own a 22B #339




Here are the other cars, but the 22B is obviously the most rare edition car we own

Above photos are original Pro Drive Legacys




These two BMWs were running in a race we were racing a Legacy in ( Wellington, New Zealand. Nissan Mobil 500)

This is the 1989 Pro Drive Legacy press photo. I plan on making my legacy look much like this, it is a great looking car

I have been sanding and prepping the car for painting, it's been a very big job but I am nearly finished and it should be away to the paint shop soon, then finally some assembly work can begin.

Well done, and I look forward to the finished project
This! Love it so far.


One thing I noticed... your pics of the powertrain out and assembled... I just installed an Opel 1.7L turbo Diesel... That engine and trans combo takes up the same volume as an EJ20! lol.

Today was a busy day, I modified a hood scoop to let more air into the engine bay and I plan on cutting luveurs into the panel on the inside of the hood to help lower temp of engine bay/intercooler. I also spent some time blending the ports on the original 2.2 cyl heads, they are very rough castings. Finally I stripped and inspected my original transmission, It looks in great shape so I will replace the seals and put it back together






I plan on doing more work in the area of reducing ambient temps in Eng bay.

I have had a few people ask me about removing the trim so I will post a few photos that will show what holds the trim in place, once the rubber door seals are removed and the screws removed from the channel that retains the door seals, then the trim can be removed from the clips. There is a nut on the rear corner window trim that needs to be removed from the inside of the car, so the inside trim piece needs to be removed to get to it, I have taken a photo of that so it will make sence




The last photo shows the trim with the channel removed, you can see that the screws go through the trim !
