My 97 Outback

Just picked up another one. Super clean 97 Outback. Came from Nevada, not a single spot of rust anywhere! Engine had head gaskets recently, but it's misfiring like crazy, and the transmission is low on fluid. But the price was right, and the body is clean!

So after looking this over a bit, I've found the head gaskets were replaced like I was told, but I've found out they didn't replace any seals at all, and only replaced the valve cover gaskets. They also reused the timing belt and accessories because they were told it was just replaced recently before they bought it. Soooo, after I get the new engine for the Loyale, the 2.2 that's currently in the Loyale will be dropped into this. It's a good engine, and will be much more reliable in the long run.

I'll also be getting a set of JDM headlights for this as well, just because the stock lights aren't in the best shape, and this style had the worst headlights Subaru ever made.

This is now running amazing with the 2.2 engine that was in my Loyale! Thanks to Kyle for help!

Coming this week is a 2" front and 2.5" rear lift kit from Anderson Design and Fabrication.

And picked these up to go on after the lift is installed:

The lift came in yesterday, so I didn't waste any time in getting it installed.



Putting the trailing arm spacer in:





This is why factory mud flaps suck



And all in:





New wheels and tires will be on tomorrow, just waiting for them to be mounted and balanced.

Nope, no boost for me. Although I do have a chance to buy an xt for cheap, but it needs an engine.
