Here is a very rare 1994 Subaru SVX that will soon be crushed under the Cars for Clunkers Program. These All-Wheel Drive cars from the early 90's are pretty rare. Its been years since I seen one on the road.
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. :)
EVO vs SVX
Used to have an SVX so I was interested to see what it ran.
Pretty much what I thought it would?
SVX Exhaust Exterior
Revving of my custom SVX Exhaust from
outside the car.
Header-back Exhaust consists of 2.25"
pipe off the headers, Magnaflow pre-cats, Catco 2-1 main cat, 2.5" pipe
from the cat-back, with a 24" Magnaflow straight-thru 4" muffler (in place
of the stock resonator), and a Bullet Camaro muffler, with Magnaflow
tips. Design is based on Tom's awesome cat-back SVX Exhaust at http://www.allwelldrive.net, with
some minor differences (larger resonator muffler further back in the
layout), and fabrication was by Dave at C&C Automotive

1992 Subaru SVX LSL AWD Funny Noise
Update: It was the diff. It has a 15" long crack in it, problem solved.
My buddys 92 SVX. It's got 180k on the original engine and maybe original
tranny. Engine runs like a dream, can't say so much for the
transmission/differential. Some people say it might be an axle, this video
is for them as I am not a Subaru guy.
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).
