Quick 'n dirty video of my SVX after the 5 speed swap. The Subaru SVX was never offered with a Manual Transmission and many SVX owners upgraded their babies with Manual Transmissions from other Subaru models. Here's my swap, video is nothing special but gives an idea of the driving experience for potential buyers as I am selling her :'o(. My goal was to do a clean swap that looked like it came from factory. Shifter is fully insulated and sound deadening material was used to reduce noise, the car glides smooothly and shifts nicely!
EVO vs SVX
Used to have an SVX so I was interested to see what it ran.
Pretty much what I thought it would?
Turbo 5spd Subaru SVX at the track
Phil's turbo SVX 5spd running only 3.5
lbs of Boost, turning pretty decent
14.5 second tmes. Keep in mind most SVXs run mid to high 15s, or low 16s!
They were NOT built for the track, they were designed as highway bruisers,
NOT street racers. :) So knocking a full 1.5-2 seconds of the stock time
is pretty good. :)
Subaru R-STi - JDM vs USDM: A Friendly Rivalry -- /TUNED
In the US, we never got the best Subaru of them all, the first generation
WRX coupe, getting stuck with the fun-but-not-fast 2.5RS version. One of
the more popular upgrades for those cars is the "R-STi" drivetrain swap. In
the season premiere of Tuned, we look at two approaches: the USDM
drivetrain swap, and the JDM drivetrain swap. Which is better? You decide.
