Arrow SUHBARU - 99RSTi V8 EJ207 RBP GM6

The Story...
So I have been registered to this forum for quite some time. I originally had a black 2.5RS as my first car. I loved the car dearly, it is what got me hooked on these AWD horizontally composed animals we call Subarus. With my RS I did minor stuff and stupid stuff. Eventually I decided to upgrade. In comes a 2007 WRX wagon. I loved this car as well. Made 300WHP 330WTQ w/6 speed swap and some other goodies. Something didn't feel right though. The car was fast enough, it looked good enough, but it just wasn't "right". Something about the GC chassis RS' kept calling me back. I sold my WRX and began looking for a RBP coupe to have my way with. That brings us to now. Spring of 2016 I purchased a 1999 RBP coupe from Seattle Washington and drove it all the way home to Wisconsin.





The current goal for this car is to get a running full JDM ver 8 swap with the full 6 speed drivetrain all the way down to the Brembos.

I remember seeing this car on CL. Glad to see it went to someone who will not ruin a clean RBP coupe.
