Wish I had taken a video while driving, digital speedos are BOSS!
Exhaust was off at time, hence no turbo-spool.
1987 Subaru Leone (US: Loyale) turbo (EA82T, MPFI) - 130hp stock, IIRC. FreeBoosting it was running ~170hp. Not bad for an engine that had done 350 000km! Of course it did eventually grenade, but it was fun while it lasted.
[HD] 1990 Subaru Loyale -- My Second Car
So basically this is a walkaround and overview of my new car, a red 1990
Subaru Loyale wagon. My old car, the 1981 Subaru GL wagon, died from a
cracked block or head and was towed away on Easter, 2012. A week after, I
picked this up. When I bought it, it had three main problems. The first was
the battery was dead from sitting for a couple months. Fixed this because I
had a new battery installed in my old car a couple months before it died,
and I just transferred it over. The second problem was the tires would go
flat within a day or two. Fixed this by buying a set of four wheels/tires
off the Ultimate Subaru Message Board for $30, swapped them out, and sold
my set for $20 on the message board. The third and final problem is the
passenger axle. Both the inner and outer boots are torn, and the actual
axle is bad. Went to the Pick-N-Pull to get an axle, but I didn't have the
right tools. Instead, I got two new headlights (the originals were yellowed
and not bright), a new clock, two speakers, a bunch of fuses, and a couple
headlight bulbs. This car is better than my old one because it's go 90 horsepower (versus
73), runs better, has five gears, and is fuel injected. It's also got a
softer suspension for a better ride. Still has on-demand 4WD, so that's
useful. It's just overall a better car. I'm glad I got it. Be looking
forward to dashcam videos!!
[HD] '90 Subaru Loyale Offroading (May 23, 2013)
Nothing major. Just some light offroading that is well within the
capabilities of the car. I never even switched into 4WD Hi, let alone 4WD
Lo. Entire video was done in FWD. I didn't want to do anything major, since
my engine is still relatively new to my car. Plus, without a lift kit,
ground clearance is definitely an issue for major offroading.
Anyways, just driving through the woods in my Soob. Nice to be in the
Subaru's natural habitat. :P I would've gone much further on the trail, but
as I started climbing in elevation, I reached some snow. Snow is nothing
for the Subaru, but again, ground clearance is an issue. Snow is
unpredictable and I can get high-centered if I'm not careful. By the time I
got to the snow, I was far from civilization. Without another person in
another car, I didn't feel comfortable continuing by myself. Headed back,
and good thing because I lost one fog light along the way. Was able to
retrieve the light and hook it back up. :P
Location is Tinkham RD, east of North Bend, WA. Exit 42 off of I-90.
Definitely a great spot, from what I can tell. First time being there, and
I'll definitely go back soon!

the owner was there for years. Car drives perfect, excellent brakes and new
tires, new clutch and new alternator. Very clean interior, minor wear
through the driver's side carpet to the left of the clutch pedal. Seats ant
trim are perfect with the exception of the driver's seat bolster that has a

Too high revs.
