Subaru powered Porsche Boxster

Following-on from the last build, here’s another Subaru powered build for your reading pleasure. The only difference is this time the turbocharged flat-4 isn’t sitting in the front of another Impreza, it’s in the back of a Porsche Boxster. This Boxster was bought with a blown motor, so the swap was intended from the get-go. The car is being built to be competitive on the circuit, while at the same time testing the reliability of the engine conversion for future public release.

    Nice build, that Boxster is probably crazy on the track. One of my friends is building his 2006 STI. I know it’s not the same car but it’s a simila engine so some readers might be interested:

    Sorry Laurie but I can’t really help. I’d try signing up to the forum that the build thread is hosted on and try to contact the owner.
