Definitely not, the evo doesn t have a distinguished sound either, so you d think it was a LET if you didnt know,
Unlike the subaru mk4 golf im doing, you just know its a subaru, no hiding that thing.
New engines all sound the same, remember the good old days when cars had their own sound, like an xr2, mk1 fiesta, 1.3 astra, astra gte 16v, the unmistakeable sound of a sierra cosworth and of course a nova sr.
It is solid, i havent used it for a few years, its got a carlton 1.8i motor same as mk1 gte, with a manta gte sump and 5 speed box, its got the mega rare manta A rear axle,
I have another exact same spec with a redtop which i will be restoring next and getting up to 300hp on carbs,
I also aquired a kadett C estate which is 1 of only 4 in the country and very very rare !
For me one of the coolest looking cars on the road and better looking than any VW !
