Hello RS25 members, thanks for checking out my members journal! Well it's been two years since I've joined this forum and think a members journal is long past due. Here's my 2001 2.5RS GM6 which I had bought myself at 17 two years ago. This is my first car, but I don't plan on getting rid of it any time soon. It's a shame I had to learn my lessons the hard way with this car, but the point is that I've learned.
When I bought the car for $6,000, the previous owner had already installed Borla replica headers and cat-back exhaust and the Cobb cold air intake along with the clear lenses on the front half of the car. It came from the factory back in 2001, with the leather/vinyl seats, gauge pod with vacuum/battery voltage/oil temp. and the Subaru carbon fiber center console trim. Everything else was me, some good and lots bad
. As soon as I return home to Illinois after graduating from Wyotech I plan on having the passenger rocker panel, door, fender and windshield fixed or replaced. New wheels and tires are also in great consideration to just bring her back to her original state. I want to start a project engine also when I get back, which will either be a twin-charged EJ257, Cummins 24-valve p-pump conversion (I'm a diesel student
) or a Chevy big block. Regardless which one I decided on or can afford, an EJ257 build WILL happen sometime in the future along with a full 22B exterior conversion.
