Quick Legacy Update.

So some of you may have already seen these photos or know what I’ve done to my Legacy so far this year, but for those who don’t here is a quick run down.

Since the Legacy was lacking a little in the power category last year with only 160 rear wheel HP.
So the stock SOHC heads and intake manifold were tossed in the trash and the WRX TD04 turbo was sold to make way for newer Legacy 2.5 DOHC heads with matching intake mani and a JDM STi TD05 16g turbo.
These two things made a huge difference, the valves in the new head are a 1/4″ bigger and the turbo flows so much more at the same psi.
A cut down fmic is in the works and a new clutch is now needed with the more power.

Next new thing on the mod list is a set of modded knuckles. Since the car is awd stock the front wheels can’t turn much because of the front cv joints. Click read more to see a photo of the new angle.

New paint code is hiding somewhere in this post too!

The wheel list for this season grew too with the gold rikens being the newest.
FOUR – 16×9.5 +5 front and 16×9.5 +13 rear Rikens
FOUR – 16×8.0 -8 front and 16×8.0 +0 rear xxr 002
FOUR – 15×7.0 -10 front and 15×7.0 -10 rear mustang
TWO – 115×7.0 +4 front and 15×7.0 +4 rear gold mesh
TWO – 15×7.0 +4 front and 15×7.0 +4 rear FC3S

    So SIK! I don’t known how I feel bout the head light, but its functional since you have a turbo.

    Can’t wait to see her tearing it up this year

    +1 on the new fitment. This is the cleanest Legacy I’ve ever seen. I always kinda didn’t know how to feel about Legacy’s, but I saw the potential. The stock fenders are kinda widebody, their boxy, they have boxter motors, and turbo. It’s crazy more people aren’t modding them.

      Unfortunately the Legacy’s are shawdowed by the little brother the Impreza. Alot of people have NO IDEA the 1st gen legacy had a Turbo AWD model. Legacy’s have just as much potential as the Impreza, but our aftermarket support is limited here in the US.

    Thanks every one!
    Glad people still like the stance of my car, hoping to go a little more low soon too.

    on a side note, how come no one has commented on where i said new paint code?

    Faark, that thing looks off its face with those Rikens. Very nice.

    Rad as hell. I was considering a Legacy as my first car if I didn’t buy a Cressida instead. I’m surprised that you’re local too, hope I see this thing on the street unless you’re on the island.

    Is the paint code 23-RB 11/349? Ran it on Google, and is the new color purple?

    Way down in Surrey.

    Car is grandpa stock as of now (broke-ass HS student with limited access to tools), but I seriously am considering going 5-speed and checking out the SerialNine coilovers if I plan on going that far. For now, gotta find someone who will cut my springs and possibly some Supra wheels if I can find those cheap.

    hey do you have any pictures of what you did to the knuckles?

  12. October 23, 2010 at 11:13 am

    this is on a miata but i did the same thing
    i ground down all the abs shit so i had a nice straight smooth surface and then drilled a new hole in from where the tie rod bolts to and used a tapered drill bit to get the right angle for the ball joint to fit in
