    Does anyone have the measurements for the notched crossmember as in where to cut.

    Since I am scrapping the 96 I figured I would take its crossmember, notch it, then renforce it with some sheet metal for practice. Then try to sell it afterwards.

    Also if anyone needs any 96 legacy parts let me know I'll let them go for next to nothing before I take it to the crusher.

    Well I have my EM narrowed down to either emanage ultimate or the wrx ecu swap.

    Wrx ecu is quite a bit cheaper but I won't be able to run the car until I get it flashed. With emanage I am already familiar and should be able to run my base tune until I can get it dialed in at a shop.

    Well thought I would post an update.

    Sold my Toyota yesterday to fund my new legacy. Hopefully going to pick it up next weekend.

    Thanks man, I love it. It's taken quite a bit of work to get to where it is. When we first moved in there was so much junk from the last owners you could barley see the floor. Haha

    So I've been pondering here at work about the Ej22, right now it's sitting at 120k I haven't taken the heads off yet because I don't want anything getting rusted up before I get the 25. Now I have never really tore down an engine, before. I have changed head gaskets, timing belts,replaced water pumps stuff like that but nothing past that. My question is what should I be looking to for in the cylinder heads? With that many miles I would hate to bolt everything up then blow the motor.

    Loaded and ready to come home, I'm about 90% positive that the motor is knocking, at idle there is a small ticking and with any throttle it turns into a pretty loud knock.

    Looks good man.

    Just for shits and giggles check out the timing belt tensioner, they can sound like a knock if they fail and flop around.

    I've been thinking about that, I don't know what I'm gonna do if it just the tensioner haha

    Don't have much of an update for today. Spent the day relaxing with the wife for Easter.

    Got some positives about the car tho,

    1.) Has 4 winter tires on snowflake 16"s with about 50% tread left.
    2.) Has the fancy wood grain on the dash
    3.) Sweet dual sunroofs
    4.) Has new kyb struts on the back don't know about the front yet.
    5.) Has this strange handle on the hatch have you guys seen one of those? I'll post a picture of it here in a few.

    I did manage to clean the garage real good and got the legacy settled into its home for the next couple of months. Got a few questions for you legacy guys.

    1.) When my key switch is off and key is out, my odometer stays on and drains my battery. Have any of you had the same issue?
    2.) What is the boost sensor on my throttle body?

    I think mom's outback odometer stays on, but couldn't swear to it. The boost sensor is just the map sensor, why it's labeled as boost sensor I haven't a clue lol.

    I was looking earlier and I noticed the little button that pushes in when you close the door has kind of a short in it, the interior light will kinda dim but not go all the way off when I close the door, so maybe it has something to do with that.

    On another note how's your car coming bratman

    Odometer staying displayed is normal, a dome light that stays on is not, that's your battery drain.

    I never liked those rear bars. It seems a lot were installed improperly and become a source of rust.

    Yeah I'm not a big fan, it's getting removed asap. Don't really see a purpose for it lol the shocks make lifting the gate easy

    I haven't had time to do much with either car to be honest. I did pick up another legacy the day after we met up though lol. So I'm now sitting on 3 BD's.

    That rear bar could work as a nice skitch bar.
