Default careercadavers L wagon...with an extra side of rice

Looks damn nice.

I'd hate to have to roll that for the summer!

What's rice about it? All I see is one classy wagon, it looks great! I feel your pain with the tan...

I do hate you a little for those wheel arches... guess I just have to find a car from Florida then.

+1 for H6 goodness!

R.I.C.E. - Race Inspired Cosmetic Enhancements. Till she has some power mods we池e classy but still kinda in this category. She値l be faster one day but for now I think I値l enjoy the stress relief of not having a turbo vehicle for a time.

I definitely recommend southern cars. The PO even went so far as to undercoat. I知 having to uncover bolts to break them lose and finding they still have zinc coating.

The H6 has also become a bit of a mixed bag. If you ever want turbo we池e pretty much talking stand-alone and forged internals. Deciding if I can leave it alone...unlikely.

I know what rice is, I just don't see it. Sporty for sure, but isn't everything OEM Subaru non-turbo stuff? Hey if you say it's rice, well it's your car. I just hope you're not concerned about it because it does look great.

And I hear ya on the H6+boost... I've done a TON of reading on it over the past several years, and I'll probly test out how far a stock ez30d can go someday. Perrin got a stock(iirc) ez30r to like 12 or 14 psi from a good sized turbo before bending rods! Have you put any thought into power stuff yet? Just curious...

I believe I also read the ez30s have hollow cams. The eg33 has its own bag of gremlins as well. I personally think the eg33 is much much cooler of an engine but the plug and play nature of the ez30 makes the bay look stock.

I guess I知 deciding whether turbo is the cards for this one...as it痴 definitely no less work. I just always struggle not swinging for the fences... one day I知 thinking ez30 is the bees knees and the next day is a v7/v8 ej207 w/ a billet wheel twin scroll vf. Even an ej205 gives more room for growth. Lol

I also picked this up last month to flip...but now I知 not so sure...





Decision decisions...I値l probably do the headgaskets on it and decide, from there, if there痴 interest in the platform.

I had one of those. Same color and everything. Was a 5 speed model which has the exact drivetrain as an '01 RS. Plan was to keep it around so I could swap everything from the car that will never be finished into it when I crash the car that will never be finished. I still cling to the 'Plug and play' 400hp dream. I did end up selling the twin to your car though. Not because it was a bad car, but because my buddy who was daily driving it doesn't know how to check oil.

That generation of outback is awesome. They make for a great DD.

Too bad those don't come standard, I'd say swap it to a 5 speed then you've got one badass wagon!

Hollow cams eh? Haven't heard that before... sounds like it'd be good for high rpms, no? Maybe a high comp/high revs N/A build for an ez30? I think I'm just addicted to the flat six sound

I definitely intend to try to boost my SVX!

Are you talking about the third gen outback? Those certainly did come with a standard.
