I have no experience with Justy's but I've always thought they were really neat, being such a small 4wd. If one was up for a Justy project, this could be a goldmine.

Seems any oddball 4wd cars have a tendency to multiply. Three is enough only when four is too many.

With a modern turbo powertrain those tin cans would scream!

Justys are the black sheep of the Subaru world, they share almost no parts with any other USDM model besides door panel clips and the like. Not bad cars on the whole (avoid the ECVT) but I'd prefer an EA-series hatchback to a Justy any day of the week.

Didn't know that. Of course I haven't had a Justy in my bay for decades. Still though, I bet it could be done. If a SHO powertrain can be stuffed in the back of a Festiva anything is possible. It could be the WRusty..

It's been done many times, I first remember reading about one around 2004?
