SVX Dyno run (stock)
Note: Okay, I later found out what was wrong with the car and some day I'm
gonna Dyno it again.
Local Subaru Club had a Dyno day and I decided to throw
my SVX on the rollers. Results are not even near of what they should be. I
don't what's wrong but on the road car feels responsive and accelerates as
it should. (Footage is crazy shaky because it was very cold a day to begin
with and then there was these huge blowers to cool the cars).
Cylinder Block Machining Video - Engine Building DVD

Basic Engine Building DVD - Chapter 25: Cylinder Block
By this time your block is disassembled and in the machine shop. One of the
most informative sections, here we take you behind the scenes to show what
goes on while your away. We show the process of align honing the main
bearing bore that is needed before anything else can be machined. Then the
block deck is leveled and machined as needed for the new head gaskets to
seat properly. And finally the cylinder walls are bored out just shy of
their new size, which will be achieved when they're honed.

A pretty boring video about flywheel resurfacing... Hey, what can you say
about flywheels, slap'em on the machine, turn it on, stand back and watch
the sparks. Another John Edwards educational video stream.

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. :)
