After it's done at the bodyshop, the plan is to swap in the drivetrain from my 05 STI.

Promised to take some hardware and various parts to the bodyshop so started going through the million boxes in my wife's laundry room.

Went to move an empty box and found it wasn't empty.. Actually it was pretty heavy and I had no idea what it was so I opened it up and found this, forgot I had ordered it which was a nice surprise!


Got all the other stuff loaded up so I can head up there after work tomorrow.

Awesome build, even though it didn't get resprayed BRP!
Don't mind me, I'm a BRP fan boy! The build is coming along nicely though, and just now found this thread. People ARE noticing, and I will be subscribing.

Off topic-How did you like that Mustang GT350? I'm not a big domestic fan, but those intrigued me.

Haha.. It took me until my 3rd Subaru (BRZ) to finally pick the right colour WRB FTW Thanks for the kind words though, appreciate it.

As for the Mustang, it would rev for days, and what a glorious engine note! Ride and handling was fantastic, it's no longer a Muscle car IMHO, more of a proper super car. Main thing I didn't care for were the armchair seats (although they were ventilated) and the steering was way too light and vague in the center. Unfortunately it was also made by Ford and so most of the body work was dropping off, front and rear bumpers (common on S550's), front splitter etc and I was terrified to mod the engine as so many have gone pop (Ford has replaced a LOT of Voodoos).

Keep the comments coming

BEST DECISION EVER!

Gokart track was brutal on Sunday, 100+ degrees and 'Feels like' of 114F!
