    Ok, so where's the best place to get an engine, gearbox and diff? Any drive train. Heard ADITI sportline is a gold mine for engines n such. Aside from there and the bamboo where did you guys look for parts to put your conversion together?

    Once the parts were acquired it took about 2 weeks working on it on and off. One week to do the mechanical parts and a week for the electrical side (checking, rechecking and going over it again to make sure it was correct). Luckily subarus are like lego so no need to hack or fab anything just bolt on and go.
