Sure, you could buy yourself an STi Impreza, but where’s the fun in that? What about taking an all original, low-milage 1986 Subaru Leone, converted to AWD thanks to an XT6 (Vortex) donor, with an engine consisting of a builtÂ EJ22T bottom end andÂ STi Version 8 Type RA heads? Yeah, I’d choose the Leone too. The initial build is done and dusted quite quickly, but the car continues to evolve throughout the thread. Unfortunately it meets a guard rail towards the end, but is thankfully repaired swiftly and with OEM parts back to better than new condition.
Thanks to Rodd and Tom for both submitting separately. Click here for more Subaru builds.

It has such an innocent exterior, but then you pop the hood and… BAM
solid build and still running
I really like how you did this. Have you done any work on the non-turbo EJ22? I have a ’95 that I am soon needing to replace/rebuild the engine. I’ve heard of a stroker or a built EJ22 but am not sure which direction I should/could take. Any thoughts or directions on what I could do to increase power in mine through an internal build? Thanks.
