Too much pressure I guess, and well it was a home job PAR actually make something that allows you to convert a Subaru's gearbox to RWD, but is very expensive

FS-ZE + AWD BJII + S/C = fun!

Pretty cool sleeper but the question is would the car handle such a mod?

Just a quick question out of curiosity; what kind of market value do you lose on a car if you do a conversion to turbo / sc i could imagine you'd lose a bit. But then find yourself a niche market for younger people.

I think you'd find it hard to sell though. I know I personally wouldn't buy a car that has been done up, it's pretty safe to say that if someone does up a car they drive it harder than someone who doesn't change from the stock wheels :P lol

people expect that, but i know id prefer to buy a car off of a car enthusiast than a 18-40 year old female...cause i know most of them out there thrash the **** outt of the cars and dont give a crap about them or warning lights...
