    gimmie a place to upload em and i shall deliver

    its certainly nice to drive something as lowly looking as a 4 door old school factory rally cross car
    and get the wtf look when pops the blow off valve or they see the laptop on the passenger seat

    they have alot of potential the problem is for this year of subaru/motors in them there is almost 0 aftermarket support for them so prett much everything i did i either built/welded adapted or hit with a hammer until it fit

    and yes those are 8.8 mm accel spiral core plug wires
    its a sorta old pic but thats how its pretty much laid out for now
    slow roll outs in first gear once i get a full lockup on the clutch i can usually do a rolling burn out when the turbo kicks in and light them in a quick shift to second

    i am working out a deal to get another turbo subaru with a fairly new motor in it to replace my old tired motor and add my "toys" to it
    i will try and upload a pic of the whole car sometime soon
