JP.. Posted May 4, 2012 Share Posted May 4, 2012 Hi All, I have been tinkering with a idea to make an AWD Z car from a 2000 subaru I parted out and a 72 z I have leftover from a restoration I am doing on another 1970 z. I have already chopped up the subaru, see pics. The idea is to cut out the floor area and weld in the subaru section that will allow me to drop in a subaru 2.5 with 5 speed trans. The rear end of the subie is very simular to the z car's. I would just bolt in the diff and modify the z's suspensions A arms to work with the hubs from the subie. see pics for better idea of what I am considering. My main concern is the weight being too far forward and the rear being too light. I think if I locate the battery and few other things to the rear of the car it might help. Another concern is what will the purists say, but then i think about it and say F$%& the purists this is a hot rod project. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
