Default Crash's Blue Impreza RS, Limpy!

So everyone remembers my nightmare car right?, well after the trans swap everything started to go to hell. Blew the motor, put the new one I'm wouldn't idle correctly, so got pissed and parted the bitch out (still in progress{buy my shi t}).

So after that I decided to look around for a new impreza, because that was the best choice right? I had a parts car what could go wrong.

Found a 2001 Blue Ridge Pearl RS coupe on craigslist, decent body, rusty quarters, the usual. And most importantly factory 5spd. Awesome right!?!

Now the kicker Rebuilt motor with zero compression in drivers side head. Well thinking to myself probably just a head/valve issue no big still new short block. So call the guy chat with him for a bit negotiate price and off with a trailer I go. Get there talk some with the guy me and my dad look over the car exchange money and paperwork. And on our way we go.

Get the car home, yank the motor, rip the heads off new gaskets and a different set of heads(known working) put motor back in, starts right up set idle and away we go. Car felt great stock as can be.

300 miles go by, and bye bye bearings so once again yank the motor and go to the local pick and pull find the cleanest 251 in the lot and in the motor goes. Starts up great everything goes great got a car again awesome sauce.

Now I made a big mistake, I didn't refresh the motors gaskets, and guess what 1000miles later new head gasket time!

So off to the machine shop a set of heads go, I bought a set of 6 star gaskets off a member here. And just keep driving around until I have time to pull the motor again.

We get to one week before our annual mwsoc shootout 200miles away, and **** well I have to get it done but I loaned my hoist out damnit, so message my buddy who had it and ask when he's gonna be doing his motor, ends up being that Saturday. So that in one weekend I did 2 motor pulls and installs, with head gaskets on 1, oh and a steering rack install, and an axle.

And once again I have car I can drive without much worry, Yay. Shootout ready!

And at the shootout my o2 goes out and I run the even in limp mode, AutoX the next day in limp mode too.

Also the timeline on all those events was like 2.5months, yupp 2 different motors, 4 different sets of heads and a very pissed off girlfriend later we have a limping RS hence limpy. And that's how I got limpy to its current state.

Oh and I need transfer bearings now!
