Its the CX kit.

Got the wideband communicating with the pfc and have been screwing with that. Threw some parts on. Just kinda chipping away at the list.

Whiteline ball joints, tie rods, alk, and endlinks
Zero/Sports front sway bar
RA Steering rack
Rear 2 Pots
Clutch type lsd * As a side note you have to grind the diff housing to put in a lsd, the lsd housings are machined just a little differently.

love the build.
how did the CX kit fit? Have to do much to make it fit or did the pieces supplied work fairly well?

The kit fit pretty good. There were a couple pipes that needed to be trimmed, but you cant beat it for the price. And its actually pretty nice quality stuff.



Some parts installed



As it sits now, still needs to be lifted a bit

I actually took this for a ride on monday Its definitely fast, and going to be a blast to drive(which is a relief). Decided to put her together and drive it before paint to double check clearances. Got the rear Z/S bar mounted finally with some forester sway bar mounts.

Installed these old school aluminum paranoid braces



Getting the interior together




Just got these from a Dutch friend, but won't be using this block. If anyone wants a good 20K shortblock with factory headgaskets let me know. It will be inspected once I get a chance to tear into it.




AAAANND the money shot

If you need a RHD gas lid lever, I think I may have one.
