very McLaren F1-ish!paul woods said:Here is the Audi box in place, i have removed the tail pipes, these will have to be rerouted behind the box, down and out the rear, a bit of fancy pipe navigation and flanges will do it, and the actuated valves will be staying, they're pretty cool and will help with low end torque... yes cos that's the one thing i need more of
So the boot is now totally dedicated to exhaust, bang goes my small storage area, oh well!
The Subaru trans is almost identical to yours. All the modern ones are AWD but they do make a rear driveshaft block off plate and something that eliminates the center diff. I have been daydreaming about this swap for a while now.paul woods said:Ok i had to Google that engine as i'm not up on my Scoobies, my first words were Fuuuuu****k! look at the width of that thing...
If it bolts to something like an Audi trans and fits within the chassis rails then yes that'll go.

I would generally agree with you but the way these tuck up under that particular bumper looks pretty good to me.scottgas said:Glad to see then progress Paul. Looks good. I personally don't like square exhaust tips. For me, I prefer round slash cut tips. They have the old school look that fits the MK1.
