Iím impressed for the money. Iíd like to color match it but I have plenty in front of that this season.









Sorry for the quality of the pics but it gives the idea.

Iím drawing back some plans to get moving on this project. Started out I had decided to swap the front crossmember and steering rack for a GD set-up. Instead Iíve gotten carried away...pics to come. Turning this into a bit more of a progressive build vs slapping all the parts on her at once.

Should have parts arriving most of the week. Iíll update once I have most of it here.

For now, all I got is this...haha







Made a before and after shot to encourage me to spend moar money.

So far this is what Iíve picked up for the swap!

L&E GC to GD Steering knuckle
07 STi Front Subframe
06 STi Steering Rack (15:1)
GD STi Front LCAís
GD STi Alum Lateral Links
02/03 WRX 5MT
02/03 WRX Rear Diff
02/03 WRX F&R Sways
GD WRX Trans Mount
GD WRX Knuckles
GD WRX Axles
GD WRX Driveshaft

JDM Black Trunk Panels
Matching GF8 Door Cards

The Showa Suspension is going on at the same time. Still need to pull the rear suspension off the donor but I have enough to start tearing into her!

Iíll post some pics. Power washed the STi crossmember and fitted the steering rack. Had to reinstall TREs too as they had been removed for shipping.

Hereís what I have ready!

Thank you! Had high hopes of starting off with a 6MT but I'm ready to be back in a turbo car and this is my route! At this point, I'll likely throw a JDM ej205 in it within a year and maybe work toward a twin scroll down the road. I have a billet wheel vf48 collecting dust that would flow very nicely on a 2.0. We'll see...

Either way, I have quite a bit to get wrenching on.

This tree is in my neighbors yard. I think I may make it a spot to post annual progress. This tree blooms and drops everything in a week. I missed taking pics under it last year.

Life is much more fun with more wang.

Sorry just like to say wang.

Thatís understandable! I have an OBS upper and JDM midpoiler. Hoping to find someone locally that I can take a few measurements off of before drilling holes.



I bought the EDM Black trunk plastics and v4 Door Cards to match my interior. Ripped all the tan out of the hatch, including headliner, to install the JDM roof rack I had powder coated. While the headliner is out I think Iíll wrap it in suede. Iíll have to leave the dash and door cards till I swap. Needed something to tear into while I piece the rest of the suspension.



Grabbed a Nardi steering wheel too.



Front STi Aluminum LCAís and lateral links. Just need a rear sway and endlinks all around and I should be set to start tearing into her. Hoping the rear subframe isnít garbage on my donor. Itís hard to put rusty parts on this car. Lol

Picked up a black Prodrive Shift Knob and some rain guards on the cheap. Need to get motivated for this headliner and 5MT swap. I still need F&R Sway bars. Debating on running aftermarket if I cant find a clean GD STi Set-up locally. I've also considered replacing some of the shifter and subframe bushings while everything is apart. I'm between that or buying some rear 2 pots and corresponding hubs.

Hopefully I'll get some momentum on this soon. Posting for accountability. Haha

Where did you buy door cards? Mine is slowly deteriorating after 22 years. Thanks
