    haha yeah. they're not the worlds strongest boxes, but with it only driving through two wheels and the car being a lot lighter than a wrx, it should hold up ok i think. also, the only 'dragging' the truck will see won't be the type with two lanes and starting lights...

    What about a 911 gear box? I'm sure it will hold up better to a V8 than the WRX.... Just saying.


    And yes, I have had my fair share of Subbies and I have restored Porsches.

    Nice teardown on day 2, impressive. How cheap are LSx motors over there?

    yeah thats the box i wanted, but they're about $5-7k over here, whereas i bought a subaru wrx sti 5 speed for $400 and an almost brand new forester (diesel) 5 speed for $200. converting it to 2wd is another $300.

    they're about $4-5k i think, so a bit out of my price range for what i want to spend on this build. probably too much torque for the little wrx gearbox too anyway... haha


    day three...
