The new guy - 96 Legacy Hoonwgn
 
Well I posted the other day in the what did you do today thread.

This is my first Subaru. I LOVE wagons. I come from many years of old Quattros and swaps. so far ill i have needed is 2 screwdrivers a 10mm and 12mm. :lol: This is a nice "stepping" out of the german world for me. bit burned out.

last Thursday I picked up a 1996 Brighton Wagon 224k 5speed. had a check engine light for a lean trim condition. first thing i did was synthetic oil change. new pvc check valve, ngk plugs, and a fuel filter. Also had a 1/4" hole in the exhaust right off the head. fixed that and the check engine light went out. passed ohio emissions check. cool.

Also visited a few pull-a-parts..snagged up a Tach, door, fender, outback bumpers, scooped hood, cup holder, radio, dual piston front calipers, and a rubber trunk liner. need one more door......then all fresh alpine paint. I will also repaint the stock non scooped hood to swap around to see what like best

also tossed on a set of 16" vw wheels i had laying around last night

Nice! I have the same problem where the exhaust header meets the block. Did you weld the piece on the hole? Or did you get new headers.

Looking forward to see what you do next.

Looking good! :) Are those the vw wheels in your last post? They look a lot like my stock SS wheels from that angle.

wagon looks like its coming along good man, i also come from a vw/audi background so i know what you mean about the simplicity of working on these motors, having all that space to work in the bay is insane!

broknindarkagain 05-07-2012 11:04 PM

If you're ever serious about lowering your car, talk to me. It can be done properly for not that much money.

maf crapped out on me today 130mi from home. unplugged it and rode it till the nearest store with one instock 207$ and burnt 3/4 tank of 93oct.....blackened bumper :coffee:

boogerburns 05-08-2012 09:11 PM

That's rough man, happened in my 200sx, its not fun. Good lookin' wagon. Mines on an 04 STi suspension with Prodrive P1 springs that I picked up locally for 300 bucks.

monkeyposeur 05-08-2012 09:16 PM

So did you pay $207? I always tell people here that I can get subie parts for days out here but no one ever takes me up, lol.

broknindarkagain 05-08-2012 10:30 PM

I have tons of parts...if its something that I don't have I can get my hands on it for pretty cheap. I've sold parts to a bunch of people on here before.
