Default 4 doors now with moar jdm and sti!

This is going to be the tale of my second rs build.
I purchased for 2k the catch is that it had a blown head gasket...12/1/14 also found some rod bearings were bad too. instead of putting more cash into the current 2.5 i went apeshit AND bought a jdm full sti swap and copious amounts of clean parts for a elegant daily rsti....that blew up after 20k miles.

Thanks evaded, meant to upload this last night.



i plan to take better res shots with the cannon as soon as i am waiting for parts.

Planning today(4/20/14 update): motor tear down begins as well as destruction evaluation.

Going to get the carbon build up removal brush tomorrow. With hopes of getting it cleaned up by mid week.

Parts list has been started.

Update (4/21/2014)
Motor is torn down to where it needs to be, really doesnt look to bad for having 180 k on it. a little dirty.








Also started detailing interior/exterior: Previous owner liked taking his dog with him mountain biking so the car is caked in dirt and dog hair.
