my friend Franz came up with that idea on mounting the BOV right on the intercooler pretty slick idea for sure. he is also my tuner [email protected] and said the awic setup is working just perfect and can handle more which this summer i got a bigger turbo coming... ill be at 400whp with the same setup on his dyno dynamics dyno, should be all right.

i have lots of room under the hood to get a even bigger one if need but i should be ok.

thank you, i got the car 2 years ago... so last summer i sold my 1993 legacy turbo i built up legacycentral bbs • View topic - Nico's 93 Legacy Turbo... i was going to use the stuff from the Legacy in the Leone but a buddy really wanted so i just sold it.

so this past summer i built the car in 2 months ! i had to wait for parts, if i had all the parts ready to go i could have built in 1 month flat. i only had it out for the end of fall so didnt even get to really drive it that much.

this summer ill bring it to the track and really beat on it to see how she handles feels













think i found my 17" wheels ?????? by my calculator calculations it looks like they will fit. that means i have to get a set of STi Brembos up front.

if they don't fit guess ill have to put them for sale

Just an idea here, take your original front seats to an upholstery shop and see if it's worth un-stitching the original fabric and then use that as the center sections (inserts) for one of the sets of Recaro's. The lettered stitching saying "Recaro" is easy enough to replicate.

Then you'd not only have a real set of Recaro's you'd also have a matching set of center inserts.

While not necessarily "Factory Recaro" per-se, if done well and the original seat fabric's in good enough shape, will make for a nicely kitted out interior. I've seen this done only about 6-8 times in my entire life and each time it came out really well. That or if you can find someone in the know, any, and I mean pretty much any woven fabric can either be duplicated or there's even some bolts of original Recaro fabric still in storage somewhere.

i was think of doing this but i didnt want to cut up the only seats left on the plant of this car in that colour. it crossed my mind so many times but i didnt have the heart, they only have 20,000kms on them and are brand new.

i only need the recaros as track seats so i found two nice fabrics to match really well that it will look all right i think.

ill just put the factory seats away and save them for one day when i swap it back to stocki guess

so this is a rear 1986 Subaru control arm, when adding wide wheels with low offsets like Subaru loves it can rub on the rear arm on this old car.



here you can see how much room i have to play if I put on a 17x7.5JJ ET53 stock subaru wheels that can fit Brembo brakes, also the front is not like this its normal Subaru style up front on this car so any wheel is ok






so what have I come up with ! simple easy is flip the arm around to the other side ! looks like the little Leone can put the rubber down to the ground now, 225/45/17 and i could use STi Brembo brakes now for the extra stopping power.





Hey !!!!! why stop there ???? Lol... lets pull out a STi 22B BBS wheel and see if we can add the monster wheels on the Leone so 235/40/17 17x8.5JJ ET48 even fits !! guess its time to show some people how its done on the track this year !








now i am really excited to pull the car out and see if this all works out perfect.

Trust me, it won't work that way for long. You have the backing nuts put into shear now and they'll separate from the main plate. See if you can use maybe a 4mm-8mm longer set of bolts and put a set of nuts on the outer side to put it all back into strength again. Better yet, cut off the old nuts and make an appropriate spacer with enough surface area to put it back to the same strength.

If ya really want to get fancy make a forward arm that's doglegged so the plate ends up in a similar spot on the tube and doesn't mess with the tracking.

yep thats what i was going to use longer bolts and nuts, i got excited that maybe it could be so simple as this idea.

cutting the nuts off is another good idea, and making a spacer for that. i dont think there is that much stress or flex in that area.

the little arm is used for Toe in Toe out and for camber lol... the old cars sure has some interesting stuff.


right now its just a idea, when the car comes back out will see how well it works in action.



also i think maybe with those wide big wheels i have to watch out for the suspension also, I am sure pushing it to the max now.
