I had the pleasure to drive one of these once, and I really enjoyed it. Yours looks awesome!

Always loved these. The only fault I thought they had was the lack of a manual transmission, but I see you are planning a 5-speed swap, that sounds very cool!

About

This is my former '92 SVX LS-L Touring AWD.
It's Pearl White/Graphite leather and has the factory wing with the wing and trunk section color-matched; unusual for an SVX.

This car was designed by Giugiaro of ItalDesign (the designer of the DeLorean DMC12, Lotus Esprit, VW Rabbit and VW V12 Nardo, among many others). It has a 3.3L DOHC Boxer 6 (H6) engine producing 230hp stock. Since Subaru didn't think they had a manual that would handle the torque produced by the EJ33, all SVXs are automatics. It has been discovered by the SVX community that many manual drivetrains will fit into this car, so there are several 5 and 6 speed SVXs running around. One day mine might be one of them, for now it carries a 4.44 auto trans and rear diff. Mine also has many upgraded parts, including drilled/slotted rotors, s/s lines, upgraded pads, etc.
It will eventually ride on 18" wheels and will be lowered and stiffened.

Specs

3.3L DOHC H6, 230hp stock

Factory Options

Mine is the LS-L Touring, which has AWD, leather, and more. It was as loaded as a '92 SVX could be, which rivaled many much pricier cars of the day. All of it still works, too...It even has speed-sensitive wipers!

Drilled/slotted rotors, upgraded pads
s/s brake lines
