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
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).
Subaru SVX driving
'95 Subaru SVX. Follow-up to the "walk-around video" also found on here.
Power mods include ECUtune 1v5 chip, Perrin lightweight crank pulley, true
cold air tomsvx style intake, gutted main cat, and 2.5" cat-back Exhaust...more to come. :-)
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.
