This build rules, and so does that book. Thank you for contributing something fresh and inspiring, I like your take on modifying a Leone!

May I ask, without being rude.. what do you do for a living?

All I could think about was how expensive this all was... maybe you can toss us a rough estimate on the cost?

Edit; showed my friend this build.. he was curious if you'd be so kind to spare him a AIM cluster for his home built Subaru RS race car, if it's any more persuasion.. he holds 4 track records.

Send the pic with the car in front of the graffiti to Car of the Month, you'll win handily.

How is the weight distribution with the 6MT and EJ? How nose heavy does it get, and have you tracked this yet?

One of the cleanest Subarus on the forum. Let alone one of the oldest ones...

thank you, at first i was not going to do it but then i had a buyer for my 1993 legacy turbo after fully building that one from the ground up, i kind of didnt want to sell it legacycentral bbs • View topic - Nico's 93 Legacy Turbo






motor set up is all most the same as the legacy but with a twist becuase of room issuse in the leone, but it turned out really well with out cutting a single thing. the only thing i will miss is the a/c, which i got to work with the new style pump.

i really dont know how much it cost but i built it all this summer with the help of my father. i think i started in july and its all most done i guess.

i been collecting subaru parts and cars for a very long time now and made the legacy which took allot to do. so i sold that to fund the leone build.

the aim is not mine yet maybe next year if i cant fnd a clean nice way to mount a screen to view all that is going on in the motor.

lol maybe will see, but the weight is not bad with everything and me full tank 2700lbs. corner balance was amazing becuase it was 60front 40rear, the car is really short 4inch length at 2inch wide less then any impreza gc8

track will be next year i been building this since july and just finshed right for winter which sucks so next year its takeing a beating lol.



so my us-plastic stuff has come in and its time to put in my provent 200 & got a little reservoir for the AWIC set up and it works perfect.




here we have it all put together and ready to rock.




made some brackets out of rod aluminum to hold it in place and its working perfect, oil is being seperated and dumped back the right way.



also used my factory coolant reservoir and re mounted it to the strut top with a nice aluminum plate. the AWIC reservoir fits perfect in that little corner and its working perfect.
