Discopotato03 out of the ashes .

As some of you would remember I had the white series 1 L RX Turbo known as Ellie . I unwittingly killed it with Subarus own upper engine cleaner and over about a year removed the tastier bits and threw the rolling chassis away .
May have seemed like sacrilege but I sunk a lot of time and money into that lil L and no one wanted to pay a token price - even before it perished .

I have been Subaru less for roughly two years but a number of its innards still grace "the cave" .
Remaining is the headless engine , the hybrid Lib/Vort/L DR locking gearbox , the R160LSD , the twin core radiator , front orange blinker lights , stainless exhaust manifold and the Spider modified to take the 3 plug style TB and TPS . I think mine was the only three plug Spider inlet manifold conversion ever made .
Think the tacho gage cluster is here assorted engine mounts .
I think the modified shift rods for that gearbox are here too .
Actually the whole Garrett turbo and crossover system to suit the spider is still here inc the dump/engine pipe .
It can only really be used as a system because things moved and nothing suits the OE components ie different mount and outlet flanges . There may be a couple of Vortex std turbo inlet pipes can't remember .

The hard part is I now work half my life in North WA which makes me even harder to track down .

If anyone's still keen on these bits I will look in here more often but I would prefer Sydney or NSW buyers because my time is limited .

Keen to get a Liberty for my wife to drive but needs to be 2nd hand and under 100,000 km . And manual and a white sedan .

Take care , cheers Adrian in Sydney .

Damn, that clsd would be my pick of the gear too!

All the best with the re-homing of your old skool precious parts - and I don't mean that in jest either!

Cheers

I think a couple of years ago I was asking ~ 650 for the OE clutch R160 diff . Sounds steep but this is a complete bolt in assembly ready to go .
Rocking horse doo doo .

That gearbox cost me 1350 and I'm thinking a grand isn't unreasonable considering it is a hybrid of three Vortex Gen 1 Lib and L casings .
It comes with an unmolested rear exhaust mount and a complete set of modified shift and steady rods .
And it has the shift diaphragm and cable and I think I have or had a couple of sets of solenoids .
These transmissions make a world of difference to an effectively FrWD L or MY . Suddenly not a skipping screeching understeering POS any more .
Mine has the low non turbo L low range gears in it too .

Would be very interested in the LSD & radiator.
I'm also often going up the Pac Hwy to SE Qld, so if someone wants something transported, could work out something.

I've seen 2 spider manifolds with 3 pin TPS, though these were still using the original throttle body on earlier cars with "black" ECU. wired up so that the full throttle switch becomes the idle switch, and vice versa. More difficult when wanting to use the later potentiometer type TPS like I'm trying to do...
