As a Few have found Out , I am building Cool Off-Road Equipment for all generations Of Subaru......

I am Beginning to Build Hi-Lo Older Generation Trannies to install into Outbacks, Foresters, Legacy's, and Impreza's.....

To install these into a Outback or Forester, It will require an adapter Kit , which I also Build.....

This Tranny will be re-sealed, Also It will have a Phantom grip LSD front Diff Installed, along with Axle stubs The proper spline count to mount up to your Factor Axles......

So for $1320.00 You get
Fresh tranny With LSD and Hi-Lo range 4x4, Adapter Kit, Reman Flywheel and New Clutch Kit ( these Are Part of adapter Kit)

Cons: You Loose AWD

Pros: You gain LSD front Diff, and LOW RANGE 4x4

I am trying to guage How many would be interested in having this Option in their Outback ....?

Please Feel free to ask Questions,

Thanks, John

Jon,
I am interested in this mod. I see that the con is that you loose AWD in place of 4WD. What's the big difference? Also, Im assuming this is an EA type transmission, so can this transmission handle the power of an EJ-25?

Thanks, and keep up the good work

I'm confused, do you ONLY get low range 4WD or do you get Hi & Low range 4WD with your kit?

If it is the same tranny and case as my old loyale,

then you have standard Front wheel drive (FWD), Four Wheel drive with 1:1 ratio (FWD) <-- :), as well as Four wheel drive low range (1:2?- I forget) via a selector lever. The reason you dont have AWD or full time Four wheel drive has to do with the center differential, rather the lacking of one in transmissions/transaxles that I think mudrat is using. Visualize the front and rear "driveshafts"* rotating at the exact same speed, and therefore have poor dry road handling as the drivetrain binds up in the turns. *yes, I know there is not a front shaft

Now, if mudrat can get my Subaru to be (RWD) as the default, then we might have a real big winner!

Mudrat: does your mod work with both manual and auto trannys?

That's what I love about the 3.0R with VDC, they are the only Outback that by default is mostly RWD ;)

Mudrat, I will gladly pay $1500 for a low range in my 2001 Outback AWD do you have a website? I own an automotive repair shop and just r+r the clutch so can I purchase the upgrade and install it myself? thanks, mike
