got some issues

in the rear end

to use the 180 rear diff you have to use the r180 hubs

which won't:

a: work with your suspension if its from an 05 sti

b: require r180 spicific rear brakes ie brembos-->and wheels to clear the brembos


best solution is to find a 3.90 r160 diff and keep your rear brakes

What about the OBD-I and rest of the wiring architecture in a 95? Or are you looking at stand-alone EM?


Also, you’ll probably need to stiffen your chassis, specifically in the rear as the 2nd gen Legacy bracing is terrible under any kind of power.


Can’t wait to see some more details as you start the project, keep us updated… :D
