Subaru SVX

She has been sitting for a while now so doesn't look like this right now.  It has been a project car for 2 years or so.  They are super slow but I have a bunch of mods done to it and plan on doing a manual swap on it at some point.  I've had a weird idle loop issue that I was trying to source but I have been extremely busy and I also get motivated and then lose interest quickly.  I hope to have her running again this summer.  These are cool cars.

That thing is pretty rad.  How is the contour glass replacement market for them?  Do they have glass readily available?

They are pretty rare even running anymore.  I have had 3 of them.  Parts are NLA and glass is from hopefully one found in a parts car someone stole the engine for a six swapped project.  The engines are pretty amazing.  The SVX is slow because of the weight, the truly awful 4EAT, and that is an NA vehicle.  Those engines have had a lot of success in other builds and racing (Andy Forest).  Aftermarket glass on these never seems to seal correctly.

I remember these from back in the day as well.

Always thought they were cool because they were/are so unique.

Thank you.  I am deeply entrenched with that community and have multiple friends who have done it.  I know the first guy who was known to have done it as well.  I personally want 4.44 gears out of a Forester XT because it will at least make it feel a lot faster off the line.  That is why people do 4.44 auto swaps like I have had done to mine as the gearing helps right off the bat.  They are expensive to mod as the stock ECU can only literally add like 30 HP before even with using a Z32 MAF, injectors, and an ECU chip it cuts out at around 260/270 crank.  You have to go standalone EMU if you want to do anything with power.
