    Default Elder Scrolls VI: Pleiades 86 Subaru GL-10

    "Could the legends be true?"
    "Legends dont burn down villages..."


    Elder Scrolls VI: Pleiades
    I've got a 1986 Subaru GL-10, I traded an MR2 i got for $500 and $1000 on top of it, This may very well be the only rust free GL-10 in Minnesota, and may be the ONLY GL-10 in MN, there is a red one to be rumored to be in existence here but the rumors are few and far between. Options i have on this car are: Digital Dashboard, Active Ride Height, Trip Computer/Range computer, power windows and locks, sunroof, every option available except leather seats if they were offered.

    Mechanically it is an EA82T, Subaru's second turboed engine. It is unintercooled and the slowest engine ive ever had in my life (runner up is a D15B running on 3cylinders). The transmission is an Automatic 3 speed, which when coupled with the motor makes for a very long trip to 60 mph (16 seconds at 65 degrees going downhill)






    It sits high but its because this shit is a massive pain in the dick to lower.

    I lowered the front 2 inches with Subaru XT struts, which did seem to help the look. The back is dropping 2" on some Eibach replacement coilover struts sized at 9"x2.5" (stock is 11"x2.5")



    Then i hit the wheels with some 150 grit sandpaper to clean them up, i still have a ways to go.



    But so far that's where I am now, final product will be 5x100 swapped (GC impreza front suspension, XT6 rear suspension) lowered another 2" on subaru impreza coilovers up front and legacy coils in back. Power will come from an EJ family engine, most likely an EJ25 with a WRX or STI turbo kit/intake manifold mated to a first gen Legacy 5 speed transmission. So stay tuned guys...

    Had to look up what an XT was, I didn't know they sold 1st gen alcyone's in the US.

    Looks great though, thats a pretty clean looking GL you got there.

    What color is yours? yours might be the one i've heard about! o.O

    Honestly the swap seems straight forward the bitch is in finding Subaru XT6 rear hubs.

    I only knew about it because my old friend MadMike parted out one he got that was made of rust back in the day, bought the car for $575 parted it and made $5000, including scrapping the body.

    Are you sure? Unless it's been swapped, it should be an EA82T.

    These are neat cars - I had a couple of Loyales and I loved them to death. Once you've got it low, an RX grille would really clean up the front end.

    Well good news and bad. Good news is i got some 3k HIDs, a drift mirror which i'm gonna either zebra print or use my Buzz Lightyear print fabric on it, and i got a digital IAT sensor that looks really dope, plus removed the exhaust so its open down pipe, pics coming.

    bad news... might of blown a headgasket, so an EJ swap might be coming sooner rather than later cuz i REALLY dont want to put a lot of work into this shit box EA82T i got now. Im really hoping its a TB gasket or a Intake manifold gasket.

    EA82ts are pretty damn notorious for headgaskets. Hoping that's not what it is, but I'd start keeping an eye out for a cheap EJ...

    fixed the leak it was like every hose on the right side of the engine. im sure i got like a month left on the headgasket though.

    anyway went to Proving Grounds at BIR this weekend, was gonna take pictures but i got WAY too drunk, started talking to trees and was shooting my laser pointer at aliens. throughout my inebriated blur i remember seeing a really dope FWD GL wagon slammed on CRX coilovers.
