Yeah it's a 2.5l. As for exhaust its a WRX cat back with a can and the headers are aftermarket equal lengths.

Default Update :(

So not a good update. Yesterday I rear-ended someone. There car came out with minor blue scratches mine came out like this......



After after 4 hours of work it looks like this.....



So i'm now looking for a bunch of parts so feel free to PM if you have any. I also have a WTB thread. I guess i'll have a fresh new front end when i'm done.

Shit man, I was getting into the journal and then got to that last bit, bummer. Could you salvage anything from the front end? Lights? Bumper? Fogs? +1 for NH also, I feel like there's not too many of us here.

The front bumper and below is salvageable.. I've already started putting her back together. Just need lights and driver's side fender and some paint later on and it will be good to go.

Got my radiator and fans in(thanks Jonny O) and now it runs and i can finally move it around. I hope to have it roadworthy by Monday but most likely won't until later on in the week. My garage isn't heated so I got to work in -28*!

You are more than welcome sir. Glad it worked out and it's back on the road. Lets see some pictures.

I was 80/20 on the rad having a leak man, hence throwing it in for free. Just make sure to carry a gallon of mix with you until it proves itself so I don't feel like an ass.

Keep up the good work man.
