What did we do on the build?


Under the direction of Subaru Australia, an epic Subaru Brumby was built. Some say this is how the Brumby would be made if remanufactured today.


Dragged from a barn and into the 21st century, an EJ202 (2L boxer) engine was fitted giving it plenty of power. Traction was also made possible via the matching Subaru Forester AWD gearbox.


With power comes the need for upgraded braking. The Subarino 5 stud/EJ brake conversion kit was used to adapt the donor Forester brakes onto the Brumby.


The combination of the now more modern wheel stud pattern and our Subarino 2-inch lift kit gave us the necessary clearance to add larger wheels. This transformed it into not only a daily driver but a weekend off-road warrior.


Jam-packed with Subarino goodies it’s no surprise the conversion was a huge success and very popular amongst Subaru enthusiasts worldwide.
