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).
STi vs SVX
Stage 2.5 2011 STi vs 3.3 stock 94' SVX
Just toying with 1-2 gear :)
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. :)
SVX Tribute - Fast & Furious
Well out of sheer boredom in a few classes, i started taking the raw
footage from my "Pretender" video and decided to recut it, with absolutely
no additional footage, into a new video.
This video also feel remarkably different, it's pretty cool considering
it's just recycled footage, but it just goes to show the variety you can
have with such things. The audio is exactly as it's heard in the Original
"The Fast & the Furious" movie when Paul Walker's character is messing with
his Mitsubishi Eclipse in the Dodger Stadium parking lot. The car sounds
are right off the soundtrack, for authenticity's sake, i had to say
something because my Flat-6 sounds sooooo much better then that little turbo four banger haha. Anywho this was
purely made for boredom's sake but it's a decent job, i'm no F&F fanboy,
just in case you wondered.
1995 Subaru SVX - 5spd Manual Transmission
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
