Thanks Dave its only a matter of time and a bit more money and it will happen

head gaskets and a carby kit for the holley are paid for and coming , need to save some money for a clutch kit, a liberty 5 speed AWD box, a tail shaft and some other bits and then put it all together

I think it will be a case of either modifying the original subaru air cleaner or building an air box to some type of pod


I can't wait to see it drown the engine
Franken-manifold! Love it!!! Can't wait to see this thing up and running!

I know I'm EFI converted, but if you know what you're doing and how to get there, go for it ;) Can't wait to see the end result!

Cheers

No probs buddy.. Family first :)

Yes it's strange how freight from the other side of the world can get here faster than within Aus?? I remember my Mum always saying that when mail was transported via camels East to West (or vise versa) they would guarantee it would be delivered within 7 days.. Australia Post today is still unable to give you that guarantee unless you pay extra :D

maybe they should go back to camels they are a damn sight more reliable than trucks :)

and it looks like next week end might be off for me as well as wifey has made plans for me to catch up with an old friend of mine from Germany

thanks wrxer Im just waiting on a carby kit and then the reconstruction begins

and that ute on ebay would be wonderful but I would need a tanker to follow me

(I wonder if I should start the motor during a lightning storm and scream IT LIVES IT LIVES)
