Will update this more later. I’ve had the car for a few months and have already done a ton of work to it. I plan to take it track and auto-x on the weekends. I’ve taken a 10 year hiatus from the building scene but bought this POS to get back into it. I suck at taking pics while I’m working on it so I apologize in advance.

Mods/prices
1997 Subaru Impreza 2.2 auto w/140k-$700
JDM Wrx 5spd driveline (sans engine)with 4.11:1 final-$1000
New master/slave cylinders and lines-$50
Competition lightweight flywheel -$150
Cobb short shifter
Prova Eifel Concept of Nurburgring coilovers-$380
New GroupN tophats-$160
02 Wrx rear subframe, arms, hubs, brakes,etc-$100
02 Wrx front struts subframe, steering rack, axles, control arms, hubs, brakes, etc-$100
Stoptech stainless brake lines on all 4 corners-$70
Outback hood-$70
RPF1’s with 225/45R17 BF Goodrich gForce Rival (track)
JDM v7 gold wheels with 225/45R17 pirelli somethings (street)

Bought but not yet assembled/installed.
05 RS engine, harness, ecu, dash, cluster -$500
Ej257 crank (brand new from subaru)-$320
Ej257 rods-$70
Wrx exhaust manifold-$50
Catless uppipe-$30
Wrx intercooler-$20
565cc injectors-$30
Sti fuel pump-$30

That’s all I can think of now. Suspension and drivetrain are just about complete. Engine is next. Engine will be:
05 RS ECU, openECU tuned
05 RS SOHC heads (valves lapped, new stem seals)
EJ255 block (cleaned and honed)
EJ257 crank and rods
ACL race rod/main bearings
11mm oil pump
EJ253 pistons
EJ257 headgaskets
Wrx exhaust manifold
Catless uppipe
16g turbo
Wrx intercooler
Catless downpipe.

Stay tuned.

Installed wrx calipers and rotors with new pads and SS lines on all 4 corners.

Didn’t install the Wrx front subframe and rack, need to figure out which u-joint I need to connect the column to the rack.

Progress is slow. Somehow I lost (threw out) my 257 oil pickup so I'll need to get another one of those. Heads are on. Need to adjust the uppipe/manifolds to clear the head.
