Default Pat's EJ22 Impreza RS

I bought this car back in March 2014 with around 94,000 miles on it, it is a 2000 Impreza 2.5RS sedan 5mt in Silverthorne Metallic. Spun a bearing at 97,175 miles and swapped in an EG33 from a 1992 SVX.

Update for everyone who saw my first journal:

New vacuum hoses for the breathers









Makes the engine bay look a little cleaner (I've got a ways to go)



I'm also converting to SVX brackets



and I got platinum spark plugs, these are the old ones

I've actually debated supercharging it! But being in New England it could be 0F out or 100F and I don't want a big intercooler so a turbo would be better for getting a consistent level of boost year round
