Re: Baja 5-speed to 6-speed conversion?

After 2007, the 6mt's no longer contain a speedo gear for your ecu/gauge cluster. There are workarounds that cost money, but you could just avoid those issues by buying one that comes with a speedo gear. Dccd is mostly gimmick unless you rally. You could save a bit of money and get a Japanese 6mt wi...

Re: Sunroof issues

You guys just revealed another problem I have. My sun roof opens fine, but when I close it, it goes a few inches then stops, hit the switch again and it closes all the way. I'm still trying to find something that worked correctly on my Baja. John, that's a safety feature that all Subaru sunroofs ha...

Re: New Baja owner: wheels/tires size question

I use tirerack.com to see what their suggestion for +1" tires. That way your speedometer is closest to being accurate.

Re: Outback doors fit?

I tried a 2003 rear outback door on my 03 Baja, and not only did it bolt up but the wiring was identical. I had to swap window glass because the outback glass wouldn't allow the door to close. If you tried a 2000 outback door on a 2006 Baja, there may be differences in the wiring, who knows. But the...

Re: Good afternoon. New to forums. I’m in dire nDoes anyone know if the Legacy gt engine can be easily swapped into my B

I've never heard of anyone swapping dashes over to accomplish that particular swap. In the past, people have swapped 2002-2007 WRX or STI dashes and full wiring harness over into older imprezas or legacys. Nothing fits properly, none of the wiring lines up or is the same coloring. Can you do it? If ...

Re: Good afternoon. New to forums. I’m in dire nDoes anyone know if the Legacy gt engine can be easily swapped into my B

They all bolt right in but the wiring is 0% compatible as is. Unless you are a wiring guru, it's not going to happen and you need to contact a company such as https://www.iwireservices.com/ and give them the details about your car and the engine you want to swap right in. Expect to spend $1200+ for ...

Needs more details, is your Baja a turbo? Is the Legacy GT a turbo also? Are none of the mentioned cars turbo? What year legacy GT? Are you talking about American market cars?

Re: What have you hauled? Post Pics !!!

You know, if I had that damage, and those parts, I would seriously consider making my Baja a "long bed" (adding about a foot between the wheel and bumper). Dennis Wish I thought of that lol! The baja has been fixed already but unfortunately I need another silver door and the junkyards haven't had a...

Re: What have you hauled? Post Pics !!!

I hauled nearly a quarter of a Baja, in the bed. It's like Baja-ception!

The junkyard wouldn't sell me any less, even though my body guy only used a couple feet of sheetmetal to repair the damage.
