Hello. New here,so here goos.
Back in 2007 started to put the parts and chassie together. I have 3 chassis to work from,2 from Texas and one from Ca. The Texas car seems to be better/less rust but it was hit in the driver front and repaired. Will look into that when I get is up on Rotisserie. Will start building the Rotisserie next.

She will be powered by a JDM Sti using a adapter to the 914 transaxle. Didn't want to go to the Subaru,to much work.

When I get it up on the Rotisserie is this a good time to have blasted clean/paint free?

Here are some photos . Any input is welcome!
Randy

Have you driven a 914 with a side shifter? They are nothing to write home about. I wish I would have gone suby transaxle. My next one will!

Well I drove 140+ miles a day for 3 years with my 73. But I know what you are getting at. They are not a racing trans but I think it would be ok for a old racer? LOL (IMG:style_emoticons/default/driving.gif)

Always happy to see new subaru 914's, which JDM STI are you thinking? You may want to talk to Britian Smith, as he went Version 8 (or 7, either way RIDICULOUSLY fast)

Thanks All!

The motor is from a 1994 Sti. She is close to a 555, Like 275 HP stock.
Here is the chassis tag.

The wide body is to wide for a street car. There is no way you'll find tires to fit that body in street rubber anywhere less than 2k a pop. The narrow body can fit 11" wide rims... Hell my "little" flares fit 10's in the back with 285's.

Edit: When I say wide vs narrow I am referring to Sheridan's body kits...

Good lookin project (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

Andyrew that was what I was thinking! And the glass may not work well with the people on the city streets? Maybe this is the way to go??

The GT look is the most preferred.

I have fiberglass fenders front/rear (Molded in). Daily drove for a year no issues. Just mount them well and dont stand on them.

"powered by a JDM Sti using a adapter to the 914 transaxle. Didn't want to go to the Subaru,to much work."

I have the WRX and adapter. It shifts ok. The car is fast, then I shift, it is fast again, shift, fast again, ...
We need a logger test of a suby and 901 to see the time between shifts (IMG:style_emoticons/default/driving.gif)
Then there is first gear that is not much use even before you break it.
Just saying, it is my missing link.

So ,I have been looking at a lot of build photos. In this photo the center tunnel has been removed. What about making it taller to take the water lines?

Never thought about removing the tunnel. The Subaru trans is TOTALLY worth the little bit of extra work. With the modern trans you can just drive the car without the constant f*(*cking with the 914 trans - ie just drop into 1st gear and go.

My first V8 car had water lines in the tunnel. They transmit a lot of heat into the cabin. You will have to insulate the lines in the tunnel. My car now runs lines under the car. Never had a problem.

"Porcharu" Do you still sell the adapter flanges ?

After reading your page I may need to think about this.

Wow, all of the support has been removed. No cross and no center tunnel. Looks nice, but how strong is this?
