I just have to get this off my chest. I just looked under the steering wheel tucked to a small area on the left and I found this interesting make labeled on this part that looks like a small ECU. I know it's not there to take up space, so is that the speed limiter, speed sensor, etc.?

you know that turbo on the WRX? guess who makes that ;)

there are also nissan parts on our cars. stupid things like seatbelts and various modules are often sourced from other companies rather than waste the time and money to make the same thing yourself. why do you think it was such a big deal that the new 6MT was subaru's first new tranny in something like 20 years. all the others, including ours, are made by someone else ( don't ask who :p )

that's right. i designed our trannies. i was up late one night after a screening of Rocky Horror and reckoned myself a modern frank. I thought, "lets do the time warp again" so i decided to try an create my own tranny. well, the swirling colors and my corsett really impressed subaru so they went with it. why do you think it breaks all the time :nuetron:

I vaguely remember some belt or something in the engine bay. At first glance I thought it said "Mitsubishi." Upon closer inspection it actually says "Mitsuboshi."

Why do you guys think it breaks all the time?

Oops! Why did you go back in time just to make a Subaru tranny?
