Default Mr_subaru's Track/Auto-x/DD MY99 RS

Well time to start one of these finally just incase i enter and or win the picture of the month poll. Ive had this car for about 6 years now and done a fair bit of additions to it, mostly suspension thus far. It has been holding up to the import car reliability status for the most part...except for a rod bearing or wrist pin on the crank that decided to weaken severely and that meant a swap was in order. I was able to find a 2002 EJ25 for a decent price and the entire swap cost around 2000 (canadian) including the engine. I was still contemplating a WRX swap but just didnt have the extra cash as that was the same year i did my rear sway, coilovers, brakes and clutch...

Mods:

Suspension/Brake;
Bilstein PSS9 Coilovers
GroupN Front Strut Mounts
Tein Front Strut Bar
Cusco Rear Strut Bar
Cusco 21-23mm RSB
Whiteline 22-24mm FSB
WRX Rear Sway Bar brackets
Whiteline HD Rear Endlinks
Kartboy Front Endlinks
STi Pink Trailing Arms
TiC Rear Trailing Arm Bushings - Enthusiast
STI Triple Pillow Ball Lateral Links (ST2250055000) True GC Lateral Links
PowerSlot slotted front and rear rotors
Porterfield R4-S pads
Grimmspeed MBC brace
Work Emotion CR-Kai 17x7
Work Lightweight Tuner lugs
Dunlop Z1 StarSpecs 215/45/ZR17, summer
Michelin Pilot Alpin PA3 205/55/16, winter

Engine/Drivetrain;
2002 EJ25
Port and Polished Intake Manifold (to be installed)
Plenum spacer (to be installed)
COBB CAI intake with snorkus delete
Borla (real) Headers
Techworks Eng High Flow Cat
Stromung Catback, dual tip
Crawford SRS-19
Kartboy ShortShifter
Kartboy Front Stay Bushings

Kartboy Rear Diff Outrigger bushings
Kartboy Pitch Stop Mount
TiC Shifter Wobble Bushings

Audio;

JL Audio 300/4
JL Audio 10" W0 (3)
JL Audio VR 6.5" 2-way componts (f&r)
Alpine CDA 9835 Headunit
Alpine 6disc MP3 changer
Stinger Cap
Stinger Battery terminal
Dynomatt, doors and trunk

Interior/Exterior;
Momo shift knob
WRX pedals
Pink 6 star grille badge
"S U B A R U" debadged

Future Mods;
Cams
SRS-30
4/2pot brake upgrade
SS brake lines
Ver 5/6 front bumper
STi/WRX seats
STI steering wheel
JDM tails
fender braces

The future section has a bit of a question mark to some of it, as im thinking of upgrading shortly after I purchase a house of my own. To either a E46 M3, C63 AMG, 2013+ STi hatch (most likely), either way the 99RS will be my winter DD and summer track car

A few pics

id ballpark it at maybe 100lbs total. ive found even with 3 subs my speakers will make you turn it down before the subs do lol. it is a must to have a amp powering the speakers seperately, the deck amp just sucks
