Picked this up a few weeks ago. Needs a new engine (rod knock) but at least ran, so I knew all the other systems were OK, an long time owner, so crossing fingers it isn't a basket case.

Needs a bunch of spit and polish and fiberglass bumper repair, but I think I can handle that.

The engine I got was from a Syncro, and for a sweet deal, but needed a lot of cleaning and stripping. I removed the PS pump, AC compressor, intake manifolds, and syncro exhaust, but not without a few stubborn, rounded off nuts (before I got to them)!

Now to prep the used 2.1 with ratio rockers, S&S header, better intake etc until I decide what Subaru goes into it.

Also, will be lowered on H&R springs, some 17" Porsche Cup type alloys, etc. And - we will see how she really does in Colorado Snow!!

Nice, hope it all comes together well for you. Where did you get the SandS header?

It actually came with the van - ceramic coated, even.
