Greg, wow I had no idea you were putting that much work into the OB XT! Aside from the color, I would want everything you've done for my car. Too bad I spend my $$ on other habits. :(


Next step, shave the roof! You don't need that roof rack do you?


Awesome car. Has the car been trouble free on all those 141,000 miles? It looks better than new!

Pretty much trouble free, I had a bad wheel sensor once in the winter it was packed with snow. I replaced the turbo at 112,000 BEFORE it would have likely failed.


I also had a throw out bearing starting to make noise as it was going bad. So thats when I replaced the clutch.

Word to the wise here, if your TO bearing starts making noise in the cold weather or otherwise, get it replaced ASAP, as it will damage the tranny snout if you don't. As soon as mine made noise I yanked the transmission.


Other than that not really any other problems.


I do use the rack once in a while so really need it to stay.....

^ Ive never totaled it up :p, I dont think I want to know. Its been spread out over 6.5 years if thats any consolation. :spin:


I will say this, almost everything on this car was purchased used, or a great deal from a vendor, or Subaru Bucks from using my credit card with work.


My last car a 1997 Jeep Cherokee that was lifted and modded out had 175,000 on it when I sold it on ebay for 9000.


I put that as a big down payment on the Outback when I purchased it.


Its been fun, and I do plan on keeping it for quite some time.

Going to hold off a bit... Got two big projects ahead of me! Took a break from building the wife's wagon to build my car, then I scored a deal on a dyno with Christian from Cobb so now I'm building both! STi seats are still in my future. :D

Its went up a few hundred dollars since I bought it. Plus I got a discount from the OLD prices listed being a LGT member.

Thanks again everyone for the compliments.

Ill be putting the matching Blue Alcantara in the factory back seat cover soon.

I am going to take the stock rear seat covers off and my wife is going to sew the Alcantara in where we take the tweed out.


Ill post pics as soon as I get it done.
