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
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. :)
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).

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
