Default Fraydar's Duperu



Hello rs25! My name is Fraser and I am currently a nursing student at the University of New Hampshire in Durham, NH. I grew up in northern New Hampshire and have been here my whole life. I started out mechanically by working in a machine shop for five years as a summer job which progressed to working on motorcyles and now cars. I've had a 93 Impreza wagon, 02 Impreza OBS, and an 02 VW Jetta.

Im recently back to Subaru, as I bought a 1999 Impreza OBS white/grey 5-speed with 104k from another member on here. The car came with some tasteful mods including KYB GR2 struts and Tanabe NF210 springs (5k on them), Group N Tophats all around, 17mm rear swaybar, ganzflow intake, 2005 WRX front seats, amber corners, and a very loud custom exhaust.

The plan is to build a good looking, entertaining, and functional vehicle that I can tow friends behind on sleds, haul everyone up to the mountains to ski, and rip around in whenever. Hope you enjoy the build!

Ganzflow style intake

I'm not really sure, they came with the car when I got it. I definitely like the look of the wheels with the OBS, gives it a little more edge but still keeping an oem look.

Sorry, the title mentions skimobile... I related that to snow mobile, which made me think some serious winter equipment.

I'll just be going now...
