Default Modding the Baja

I've only seen hints of this before, so I figured I'd fully ask. I've been debating on modding my Baja, but I'm not too sure what's possible or available yet. I know it shares parts and such with other Subarus, but I was wondering to what extent.

Also, since I'm not allowed to buy anything for the Baja for a while, she never said I couldn't reuse my existing stuff. I currently have a few mods from my Celica, two of those being an exhaust and intake. Now, I'd have to see a picture of the current Baja exhaust to see if the Celice one could be modified at all to fit (though it wouldn't be optimized). But, taking a quick look at the intake, it seems I could gain a few HP by replacing a lot of the current intake by modifying my existing one. I haven't checked any of the lines and hoses, but that'll all be checked out when I have the time. Again, it may not be optimized, but it should help. What are others' opinions on this?

Lastly, what kind of pieces could I get that would be an easy swap to or from the Baja? Could I go to a junkyard and take a hood from a Forester, or the lights from a WRX (I know the answer to the WRX question ) but you get my point.

I guess I shoulda just waited for the turbo...

The baja was built on the legacy frame. from what I have knoticed the front end is the same as the outback.

baja = outback = Legacy
Forester = impreza

that is the formula for the current Subaru models. so most of the time the same base model, you can swap some parts, but not all of the time.

Since the BAJA has a similar front end as the legacy would the BAJA be revised later? SinhCredible News & Rumors 49 12-21-2003 04:33 PM
