Once you go Suby, it's hard to go back. This is just one of those cars man . . . I knew I messed up when I sold her. It's like the movie "There's Something About Mary". In fact, the guy I got it from originally, still harasses me about getting her back. And the guy I bought it back from looked like a broken man as I drove her away.

Anyway, there have been a bunch of upgrades to the cooling system and suspension. I'll add those to the build thread for anyone interested in the swap.

Driving this car back home, 450 miles @ 85mph with 2000 rpm left before redline, kept a smile on my face for the whole 7 hours. Reunited, and it feels so good

I saw that a couple times at Bugorama, the Subaru install was nice.

That's it. It was in very good hands over the last 2 years, but I'm happy I was able to bring it home from Arizona. I'm going to paint the engine bay

Looks like a nice car.

I had to go look so:

That is a pretty serious looking panel dropping down, could be good for something else interesting... without the visible wires and nasty crimping of course.
