  3. Aircooled Mechanical Tech
    When I get the money and skill together in a few years I want to convert my swing axle 68 bug to a 'different' (understatement) engine. Got 2 solutions in mind: The Subaru FA20 out of the BRZ/GT86 if I can get my hands on one (never been done that I know of). These engines, from what I've...

    Hi, I've heard that people like to put Subaru flat four engines into old beetles and camper vans. If you're thinking about this sort of swap but can't justify buying an overpriced engine off ebay or buying the entire car for a donor, LOOK NO FURTHER :D Basically, I have broken my beloved 1996...

    Little question.. Everyone loves the throb of a scooby engine, and I'm sure most of you will know the sounds made by the exhaust manifolds being odd lengths. Reckon if you altered the exhaust manifolds on a bug engine you'd get a similar result? :crazy:

    Here is my 1999 Legacy Estate - owned since September 2007 - when I bought this car it had 95k on the clock and I have since covered a further 70k (mainly motorway miles). (165k total) It had a near-full Subaru Service history when I bought it, and has since been serviced regularly by myself...

    Regrettably I'm having to sell my scooby to pay toward house moving fees :( This car has been faultless and 100% reliable over the last year I've owned it - it even took me up into Derbyshire several times whilst the snow was down last winter and it never faltered and even passed stranded...

    I have done a forum search (promise!) but can't find any mention of Subaru Sambars that are converted into T2 'look-alikes' Is this because they have been banned from mention due to being an aberration? Opinions please! :) http://www.subarusambar.co.uk/

    I have a 99 Legacy (non turbo) and its clutch is very high, occasionally slips - anyone know how much it will cost to have a new one fitted (parts + labour)? If anyone knows a good suby specialist that could do the work please let me know (Staffordshire). Cheers! Jamie
