Super gramps (MCM) is a boosted H6 and handling it well.

Im wondering why the car isn't immediately painted after primer? I would want every square inch painted before I put anything on, but maybe thats just me.

There's quite a few boosted EZ30 running very well nowadays. One here in Australia is making enough power to turn the stock prop shaft into a pretzel. If you go back 10 years, there wasn't really enough knowledge to make the most of the motors. Now it's a different matter.
I've heard the EZ30d (first gen) is better for boost than the EZ30r, but they can both certainly make plenty of power!

Yeah, boosting an EZ30 is pretty tried and tested now, certainly wasn't when I started this project so you could say my idea to do it was up there with the other pioneers like Jeff Perrin; just that the execution of it has taken longer... but then there is a full restoration job going on as well : ) It's great now that there is more information and options when it comes to engine management too, and not just the upgraded internals that were actually quite quick to come out (around 2006 I think). Mine is the earlier motor (suits the car, both 1st gen.)

Car has only been primed for a few reasons; cost, haven't decided on the colour yet, but more importantly I still have fabrication and final fit to do and that would ruin a brand new paint job... there are quite a few modifications to factory parts so it's necessary to work out how to install them without damaging anything. It will be stripped again for sure before the body is final prepped and topcoat is applied.

To clarify, I wasn't trying to detract from your awesome build in any way what so ever, I've been following since page 1 and am still pumped to see the finished result! I'm blown away that you're still motivated enough to keep at it even now.

Hi everyone... hello? Anyone? I'm wondering if there is still somebody following this thread... its been going on for about 10 years now lol : D


Anyways, it is still in progress!! Body is ever closer to being painted, well, the floors are painted now and hopefully the front fenders are finished by now too... more on those later, but they will help my decision on which colour to go with. Once I know that I can do the interior painting and them send it off for exterior finishing.

Just came across this thread.
Looks like an awesome build. Will be good to see it as it progresses more.
Legacy_H6TT - are you on Clubsub? I havent seen the build on there, if you are not you should join and do a build thread on there.

Hi all. First up, apologies for all the missing photos... damn you Photobucket for removing your free 3rd party hosting, littering my account pages with ads and demanding $400 a year to remove them and access previously free functions.

I will eventually re-host all photos and change the links to show them in the thread again.

But in the meantime, here are some latest pics for you to enjoy!


I had the front guards (fenders) painted, one in each of the 2 shades of blue I wanted to compare...



This one above is Ferrari Blu Tour de France, and I painted a 3rd fender (off a Forrester) below in Ferrari Blu America, as I felt the Tour de France was too light, but seeing them together certainly helped me decide.



I finally decided on the Tour de France as the Blu America just seemed too dark, very similar to the original Subaru colour that was on the car. Now I can get the interior painted and that's the last job I need to do before it goes back to the paint shop!
