RX Turbo

My son James is disposing of his JAP Spec 1986 RX turbo. Body is rough as buggery so parting out will be his best option.
Motor has high 300 thousand on it features RS Liberty Turbo and big front mounted intercooler. Custom headers with big dump pipe off the Turbo. All managed by a Microtech Ecu . Was running just fine when retired around 6 years ago when it was my daily driver. Has sat in his garage ever since

5 Speed Jap AWD gearbox and LSD up the back and the brakes are earmarked for my Brumby at this stage together with the front seats.

There is a rear sway bar on it I had built thicker than the standard job which minimized understeer very nicely.
Vehicle located Northside of Brisbane.

Anybody interested in any bits give us a yell. Majordad

I'd be interested in the Microtech ECU and harness, so I can try and get this thing going http://www.ausubaru.com/forum/showthread.php?t=26155
Cheers.

Rx

Bryan,

No pics but can try and get some posted for you. It's a bit awkward to get to being jammed in the garage but James is doing a clean up around it so we can get it out. Will see what we can do this weekend. Barry

Willy,

Here is James comments on the Microtech

Microtech - $150? *, $200 with controller*

long as he knows it's not supported by microtech anymore - they no longer repair them or program them if it dies.
