Does it still have the "jump" seats in the bed?

yep ..but the blue bedliner needs to be cleaned...I'm probably gonna freshen it up in black to break up the blue some and hide the stains better for the future....or I may do it a darker navy blue....

This car takes me back. Good find. How much was it out of curiosity? And what do you plan on doing to it? I will be following for sure.

I bought it for $1850 its suppose to be around 130,000 original miles...Its hard to find one thats not all rusted out...though I hope someday to find a nice 2nd gen with T-tops

they are pretty neat especially with the little V4 under the hood.....

are they really V4? Thats pretty neat, I thought it would have a really old school flat 4

That's a cool old brat bro! Too bad they never had a V4, though, yo.

it looked like a V4 to me...two spark plugs on each side....i know it has the power of a slug...like an old vw beetle .....it was kicking 4000rpm at 70mph....

this one is snail slow...I'm gonna give it a basic tune up and see if I can't help it some...I am not crazy about the exhaust muffler...I may add a Camaro muffler like I have on my Wrangler and dual it out.....which is basically a single muffler with one inlet and two outlets....

do it. thatd look tight.

02-16-2010, 01:39 AM
You're not gonna get much more out of it bro. I'm assuming that's an early one, like a 78-80? Those motors had 67 HP! Pretty gutless.

You gots an H4 motor. Horizontally opposed, flat four, boxer, H4 is what those are. Not a V4.

i don't know much about motors...as long as it runs i'm happy...its a 1600 the smallest one....i hope to add some early vw wheel adapters or mod mine to 6 lug...and find a 3" lift for it....then find some back muddy roads to play....I want to rig a receiver on each end and get a portable winch kit in case I get stuck....so I can get it out.....

Yeah...I'll post pics when I get the exhaust done....

Yup, it's an EA71 1.6L. 67 HP baby! Just drop a 3.0 STI in there and call it a day. Heck, even a 2.5 would be more grunt and go.

If I knew how to do that...I would..but I wouldn't know where to begin.....beyond basics on motors I'm lost...

I'm trying to remember the name of those...I'm thinking an X2000 but that could be wrong.....I'm thinking Suzuki made them...maybe Subaru

It will be a Concept 10 on an old school Rockford 250 watt mono amp....I want to do custom kicks and maybe a matching Rockford 2ch amp.....not sure of deck or highs yet

You're retarded... An sti has a 2.5L turbocharged engine. There is no Impreza that comes stock with a 3.0L.

2.0 turbo and 2.5 (more recently) turbo are the only true "STi" motors. The only 3.0L I can think of would be the performance tuned version they put in the Legacy Spec B. I doubt a 6 would fit in that little Suba-camino. Hell, it's a 1.6L in there now, and it's naturally aspirated. Not sure the bigger 2.5L 4cyl would fit in there, not to even mention all the turbo junk and hardpiping + intercooler.

Thanks ...Its coming along pretty well...I changed it out to a RF shallow 12 box and a SONY Explode 1000...the highs for now are some BOSS enclosed speakers in the Kicks and I added an old Jensen CD Player...the CD player seems to have some issues so I'm gonna change it out soon...Its a nice budget setup...I'll try and get some new pics soon...

If by build log, you mean post a pic of the car, and a pic of some DD 1508s, and then never post anything else, yes. Im sure you will.
