Motor and Drivetrain / Re: VW 2276 swing axle to Subaru 5 link conversion
« Last post by dsrace on Today at 08:10:21 PM »
Thanks guys. The motor I have, although incomplete right now, is a 2.5, non turbo, from a 2007 Impreza 2.5i. dsrace, do you go to Little Sahara? I will plan on going with the aftermarket ecu/harness. I will ask another 200 questions as they come up!! I read somewhere that it was possible to bolt a different (cable throttle)to the intake, using an adapter for the bolt pattern. But I can't confirm that, yet.

yes LS is home sand for myself. i too run a little 4 cyl engine and a megasand trans. so you can see mine is a low budget build as well.

Almost all of the regular posters here go to LS 1-2 times a year. Some more often. We also go to St.Anthony,Idaho as often as we can .

If I can dream hard enough, I will have the car done(again) by then. I do not show off, because I have seen the stuff people have nowadays. Mine is very low budget!! I looked up the parts to convert Subaru trans to 930 CV. Subarugears sells the flanges for the trans, I think, and, if I read it right, I can use the 930 to type 1 stub axles, since I already have the hubs/breaks from my swingaxle. Hopefully.

You won't like the price of ertalyte.  There's a reason delrin is used so much. It does all that is actually needed. The only reason to use PU is to stiffen a stock suspension to enhance handling. Delrin makes a good bushing material that doesn't usually squeak,needs/wants no lube and does not deflect on impacts.

and i can buy the tube and bolt from them to make it easier.
Agreed. What is the tube made from? Mild/alloy/cheapo Chinese metal?  Wall thickness?  Again,anything that cuts down fab time and is readily available , if made from quality material is a huge benefit to time saved.

allow unkown or un specified and .125 wall thickness. od and width would suit. it takes the load of a trailing arm so it has to be strong enough for that anyway. i do like the idea of http://www.alro.com/divplastics/plasticsproduct_ertalyte.aspx
