Well, since my Lgt wasn't so of a project.. ( NOT), I, stupid as I am, decide to have 2 projects running together..
I know, I know, not the smartest idea.

So I acquire a 1992 SVX, in GREAT condition. With the plans of swapping it 5mt!

So here it is!

1992 SVX, fully loaded!

Put a 03 WRX trans in it, looking to put a lightened flywheel and stage 2 clutch. V9 wheels to. Getting coilovers and fender flares on it for the summer!

That is pretty clean! So is it a 5 speed right now? Or is that in the works?

11-13-2012, 11:54 AM
Almost done! Missing the pedals set and the custom exaust!

11-13-2012, 01:53 PM
Nice looking SVX. Love those wheels on it.

I totally understand where Huffer is coming from...
How do you afford all the awesome stuff you have at your age?! Are you a drug dealer or something? :smt017

I had a bike when I was 19 (and I don't mean motorcycle...), so yeah, I'm jealous too. :smt022

Alot of people thinks its my mom and dad.. But my dad is driving an 01 legacy and my mon an 05 grand caravan haha! So they can't afford buying me a 30k lgt sti.

I work, ALOT! And do some sacrefice regarding drugs and alcohol! Plus i do my own mecanic! I am proud of what i have, and take so much care!

And btw, this is me in the wagon mafia t-shirt, do I look like a drug dealer?! hahaha not really that style haha

I'm not hatin'!
I'm giving you props.

I wish I had this kind of dedication to our hobby when I was younger... before life got busy (good, but busy) with wife, kids, house... etc.

I can't wait to see what you do with this SVX... your Outback is a serious point of inspiration for me because of the clean lines you put down.

11-15-2012, 01:10 PM
Another SVX driver!!! Someone I that can help me with mine. haha.....But i wish i could get my hands on some gold bbs's. It is looking very good!

11-15-2012, 11:07 PM
Thanks! Hit me up if you need help!

Brand new parts are on the car:
Rad and fans
Compete new front bearings
New alternator
New Wrx master cylinder
New pads

Waiting on those
Power steering pressure hose
New discs
Rear bearings
Shifter bushings

And a few other shits!

Can wait to see her finished! Between school, work, the granny wagon (lgt), the Focus and the svx, time is rare!

I was able to afford all sorts of stuff when I lived at home. Honestly I miss being able to throw money at my car and nothing else. Stupid bills.

Updates! Haven't had time to work on it alot lately, but since 2 weeks i've done alot!

Steering column out, pedals are 65% in, bought a JDM STI gaz pedal to finish the look! 05 Lgt steering in it.

Custom crossmember and extended shifter will be done wednesday! extended driveshaft is in.
Ordering power steering hose monday, because it's shot. TCU wiring is out, VSS and reverse switch are working.
Buying an Optima Red top to put in the trunk so my 2 custom air intakes go well. Might be deleting the ABS pump to make work and still debating it I remove the AC or buy the strap that is missing.. We'll see!

All lights are at my job getting cleaned, and polished, after I can install my new HID's! Also put bigger grounds everywhere.

Shortshifter should be done wednesday to, if I can go get my Legacy shifter so I can do the 2 but the Legacy is in storage.

There is a rupture in the back seat, also getting the leather repaired. New lock for the trunk in the mail and 4 brand new hood struts and latch struts because they were broken.

Next thing is finishing pedals, installing crossmember and shifter linkage, then it's off for the custom exaust! Looking the the same style as my LegaSTi, flat black vibrant quad tips.

Then we'll see if I have money left for a lip and coilovers haha!

Boxer Wagon

Now that's what I'm talking about!

Just came back from Punta Cana! So i'll have plenty of time to work on the car!

While on vacation i received a STi shifter trim and leather, STI JDM shift knob, my friend almost finished the trans crossmember and shifter linkage - short shifter.
And I received the JDM STI gas pedal to match the brake and clutch pedal! The HID's got in also

Damn right! Missing to buy a Red Top battery for the trunk relocation and a few other things.

Can't wait haha!

Bought some STi v9 seats for the SVX!
Almost finished the passenger side mounts!


The pedals are almost done, it's the biggest and hardest part of the process! Crossmember should be in next week!

Subscribed for awesomeness!!

No really! Got a few part for it, finally received my throttle cable after 4months!

Need to finnish my Legacy first with the 6 speed swap and then the SVX! Been almost 6 months she hasn't started.. :S

Between work, girlfriend, Legacy and the college partys, time have been counted lol

09-08-2013, 04:54 PM
So i will be making a part out of the svx if anyone wanted parts!

I'm keeping the motor and swapping it into a forester

09-08-2013, 06:15 PM
Damn you.. I was going to do an H6 Forester as my next project, but I didnt say anything to keep it a surprise. I guess you will do that well before I get a chance to however.

09-08-2013, 06:58 PM
Found out the floor has a hole in it under the driver seat!

Every other aspect of the floor is spotless and the trunk to!

Now looking for a transplant body!

Looking at 03 foresters. But I would love an 04-05 Impreza sedan tho..

Maybe you still have a chance haha

I would be interested in the front bumper if you are still parting out the SVX!

Seriously man, WELD THE THING. You're destroying a classic that really doesn't have anything else seriously wrong with it? :?

After alot of thinking, I sadly need to let it go. I bought an 05 Impreza that I am swapping it and probably supercharge it before summer.

I calculated the cost and it was way to much. And getting all the parts was a pita since it takes almost 3 months to get the wheels bearings and other things it needed.

It added up to almost 3g to put in on the road again.

Motor and harness is already out of the car, motor is in pieces getting maintenance and parts changed.

It was not an easy decision, it was made the same month and year I was born, wich was really nice November 1992, I tought it was a nice connection, but the price didn't add up.
