Hey Guys First time posting, long time Subaru owner. I've got a 1989 BC5, which I have spent the last 2 and half years building with the intention of being a street legal drifter. Due to lockdowns (and life) I haven't been able to take it to a track day and so it just sits in the garden no being used. I really want to get out and enjoy the car especially after spending 2 years, and a stack of cash, sorting it out. I have done some of my own research and I know the basics of certs, adjusties, power, seats etc, but I find the LVVTA website difficult to understand. I need advice more around RWD conversions, steering set up and general welding rules. I have kept the car pretty basic with the aim of seat time over time in the shed. I have also included a full list of specs and mods below. "???" for mods i am unsure about. Are there any cert guru's out there that have done something like this before and could tell me if I'm dreaming, or is it possible without costing my a fortune?? 1989 legacy VZ - shell has current rego (on hold) and cert but certed for EZ30 and adjusties. V4 STI EJ20K - completely stock Link plug in ECU @ 195kw V4 STI gear box - welded center diff - ??? Drive shaft loops Tein adjusties STI 4pot front brakes 30mm front spacers Redrilled front knuckles - ??? Spaced alloy lower arms 2.5" turbo back exhaust with Apexi rear muffler V4 STI strut brace BC5 RS steering wheel NZKW bucket seats 4 point harnesses - still have factory seat belts Home seat rails - ??? Rear half cage - ??? (welded by a fabricator not me) Welded BH5 rear diff - Obviously needs to be removed for cert. Stripped rear interior and boot lining. RS front and rear bumper and bonnet - yes, im that guy. Apologies - Lots of info! ANY ADVICE IS GREATLY APPRECIATED. I just want to drive the bloody thing! C
