Interesting how they routed it.

They kept the stock tubes I had on there instead of fabricating slightly better ones?

The stock collector on each head was damn tiny where they came together, this is certainly more free flowing than stock. But thats about as Un-equal length as you can get!

I directed them to build more for a free flowing OE-style-setup
Was completely uninterested in an equal length setup honestly.

Looking for function and authenticity more than anything else.
I think it looks and sounds fantastic.

I don't like the OEM collectors staying either, that's the easy way to do things. I know, I work at an exhaust shop on the side. That and the flanges right below the tie rods?

Asking for good times.

? not sure what you are referring to exactly

Exhaust shop did as I instructed them to
Never told nor suggested they replace the OE collectors off of the heads.
I wanted an OE setup but a bit more free flowing
They did exactly that and I am very pleased with the work.

It is not like this car will ever be a daily driver and it's certainly no race car.

No, true, not all cars need to be racecars haha, just saying, the gasket right under the tie rod is asking for trouble if they leak. That's all.

Thumbs up

SOME UPDATES!

Mid 70's Genuine Subaru tachometer that had been installed in place of the OE speaker grille. I liked the idea but liked the SUBARU logo on the original grille even more. Guess I will have to gauge my speed by feel I can do that. I'm a professional so on the hunt i went....




OE speaker grille found from an FF-1 cut in 1/2 (yes... in 1/2!!!) in a field in MN. God Bless the seller on craigslist who trusted me enough to ship it to me. I reconditioned and repainted it and now it has a new life.

MOAR changes.

Re-Installed the "deluxe" badge (Right) and FF-1 badge (lower left) - painted the FF badge for effect.

Center badge reads "Subaru" - - Awwwww Crap. now I have to work out how to paint the rest of the badges. My hand is not that steady. Any volunteers?




Finally. She has her vintage style stone guards in place! Woooot!



Going to her first car show this weekend. Trying hard to get ready!

I have to say, the car looked ragged when you bought it, but now it is a classic!

I really dig some of the retro japanese cars. Mazda made some nice classics too. The subaru is definitely more rare.

These are legos as they say and the BRZ rear suspension dates to pre-impreza days, why not!

I intend to but need to find a center console first

OE carpet would have gone up and over the center console surround

There currently is no console with the car any longer
