The Adventure Wagon
1994 Subaru Loyale
Property of dennyt Added Dec 2009 Location:
4x4 5spd 220k as of 5/2011. This is my daily driver, 75% highway / 25% city, and I take it to the mountains most weekends year-round.
Removed power steering pump, AC fuse, clutching fan (kept stock electric fan & added one more). Replaced side mirrors with internal side mirrors & wide-angle rearview. Removed mudflaps & trailer hitch.
Added kill switch, 400W block heater, synthetic oil & transmission fluid & diff fluid & wheel bearing grease, smoother hubcaps, lower grill block, and a potentiometer on the coolant temp sensor to reduce cold-start enrichment. Added an idle air control valve restrictor plate to prevent excessive RPMs at idle & warm-up.
