    I have no plans to sell this one, all my other Subaru's including my 1998 Impreza 22B would be sold before this one, there was a time when I started out I never dreamed I could ever own even a Legacy, it was just a super cool car that I worked on at that time, so now I am building my own, like new just as I remember it dream car :-)

    I see and that good that you are reliving the good ol times. My brother have a 2001 legacy and he said his doing a swap with the Japanese engine for twin turbo. I cant wait to see that and I will race him on the track once I get my 2015 wrx and do some light weight mods among other things

    Hi, I know it's been a while since I updated the thread, I have been busy working on the transmission and I ended up stripping the case off of it after I had an issue with not being able to get the transmission strainer back into place after I removed it.
    It is now back together and the case has been cleaned and the bolts and brackets have been re plated gold zinc.
    I also had an original strut tower brace shipped over from New Zealand and I have just finished that project, I re painted the mounts and polished the bar and plated the bloats and adjuster. I also fit a Perrin short throw shifter adaptor and we made new shift linkage bushings at the shop. I have also been working on the factory fuel rails which I will have to use because we live in California and I will have to get it checked for emissions etc so I did a lot of work to help them flow more fuel.





















    Here are some update photos

    Hi guys, unfortunately as some of you know I have had to completely stop on my project with the Legacy as I have run out of money to support it and I was unable to sell any of the parts I rebuilt that were out of the Legacy that I was not going to use Again in the car.
    I have started a build on a Shadow DN5 Formula one car and I have the intentions of conting with the Legacy after it's done.
    Here are a few photos of the project so far

    If I'm not mistaken I believe he intends to continue the Legacy after the current Formula 1 project he is doing to fund the rest of the Legacy project. Unless I'm reading it wrong and the Legacy is in fact finished...which would be an utter shame!

    On a side note, what incredible work so far!

    +infinity and beyond on the artistry...seriously, that transmission looks impeccable...like its never been used in its life. Has it? I can't tell. Looks like a museum piece!

    Thanks guys, I have a lot of work ahead of me and I appreciate you are following the build.
    The transmission is used and it came from Japan, it originally looked like this

    That F1 car is awesome.
    I'm sure at that level of build, you would have serious money invested.
    It makes sense that only one build is going on at a time.
    That has to be huge money, but awesome none the less.
