    My advice is do it, you'll love it.
    Others will be along soon to tell you how wrong I am and how putting in a scooby lump is "ripping the heart out of the bus" blah blah blah.
    Basically, I'm right, they're wrong.
    Simple.

    Do it, it's just nuts, bolts and lumps of metal. If you can afford the change what's not great about better mileage and more power:thumbsup:

    I agree:)
     
  19. True - be (even more) patient........


    Anyway back to the thread....

    You do seem to get a lot of bang for your buck with a subaru.... You could almost keep up with a 1776....
