Default yoshi's RBP 99 rs

So i guess i will start with a little history of me and subarus. the first car i ever remember riding in was an 82 gl in grey. we had to get rid of that car cause of me. then about the time i was 12 or so my parents got subaru number 2 which is a 91 legacy that my mom still drives today. during high school i learned how to drive on the 91 and really liked the car. but much to my dismay my parents made me buy my first car which wasn't a suby the fall of 07 i started looking for a nice car i had not liked any of mine that i had owned before. The one thing i knew was i liked turbos and knew a bit about them. so i set out to look for a wrx taking three months to find her. I found a nice little silver wagon that was a 04 no wreck history and a nice young lady owned it. i got the first loan i could and bought the car sadly two months later a drunk driver was speeding up my street behind me and went to pass me as i was turning into the driveway totaling both car instantly. i was heart broken and didn't want to touch another suby for a long time. after a year away from the car scene i started looking at older imprezas and found i would really like a 99 rs in of course a two door. so i was talking to one of my managers at work and she said she had one that had some bad history. no wrecks but someone was going to pay them off for the car and never did so they still had the title. i blew it off thinking ya she was full of it. then one day she came in and said hey i got the car on yesterday are you interested i said yes. when i saw it was a 99 rbp rs i feel in love, then i found her down falls the engine had a rod out the block and the trans was toast,it was a 4eat. i told her i would give her a thousand dollars for it. she took it and i got my dream 99 rs. i got the car home much to my parents dismay again and pulled the engine. it was destroyed the heads were bad the only parts i could use was the intake and exhaust i grabbed the first short block i could find which was a ej22 n/a motor and got some 2.5 rs heads on it put it together and tried driving it. i failed i forgot to tighten a cam gear and it broke thinking i just ruined a head i just bought i took the motor back apart and found i got lucky on the head it was fine so i pulled everything trans and motor. i wanted a turbo from the start so i started buying turbo parts for the car as i worked my way up to getting the engine done i found a ej22t out of a 93 legacy . i had a shop build the short block and i ordered a wrx 5 speed trans i finally got the car together a month back and have been driving it the last month. i am so glad i have stayed with subarus after all this time

well christmas weekend so far i got the t-body to quit leaking air. I need to find a new coolant leak and put a heat sheild on probably tomorrow. can't wait to get it tuned. do you guys thinks its worth putting jdm corner lights on or just buy some usdm ones cause both of mine are cracked
