Calling all KIWI members....

the genuine rally stuff available in New Zealand in the early 1980's

rumoured to be special manifold for EA81 that allowed a weber to be mounted above each head

anyone seen them, got one or got photo or got one for sale ?

rumour came from a gifted Kiwi welder I met who was in the rally scene over in there at the time - Possum Bourne drove the stuff

musta been a big cam to go with them ?!



candidate for no reply type of post. hmmph

I don't doubt what you say at all...but wasn't that just the twin hitachi set uplike I got on mine or similar to the UGLY GSR. Brian, was his name said it was a factory kit that you had to install, not just an option box to be ticked.

I doubt two webers would fit on my manifold. He said carb went directly over each head, think would need alternator shifting

I repeat, I don't doubt what you say at all

Did I hear correctly that there was only 1 or 2 of these "safari" setups built? would be fun if one was sitting in a garage corner somewhere, owner not realizing what a valuable piece of subaru history he has covered in dust
