Default SoCoNoHa's new daily!

This thread is now about my 1997 Legacy GT!




She's a beaut! 5 speed from the factory and no rust, so it's basically a dream come true.

1997 Legacy GT
EJ257 block
EJ25D heads/manifold
EJ18 throttle body
CUSTOM FRONT MOUNT
3-way adjustable coilovers
Invidia catless UP/DP
WRX muffler
Unknown 17x8's

My goals are to have a sporty *yet reliable* daily driver, but being the only 4-cylinder Subaru I intend to own, there's a high likelihood of different engine/turbo combinations in this cars future.


~Pre-Legacy~

Buggin' out!




2002 Impreza 2.5RS
188,000
Automatic

Picked this up for a steal. It belonged to my former roommate and has mostly sat around since he got a G37x. It's already got a nice exhaust setup beginning with unequal length headers. Also the rims are the very same rims from my old LGT.

Already swapped in the seats that were sold as GC seats but weren't, glad to find a good use for them. Also had to replace the stereo, and give it a serious cleansing.

Plans are to boost using STI internals I've got kicking around and auto to manual swap. And a HUGE WING! I would like to bring this to a body shop as there are some dings and scratches but hardly ANY rust! Might as well keep it nice, right?

Silver Bugeyes are a think of beauty. There's a Silver STI near where I live with the low wing and stock V7wheels and every time I see it a want a silver Bugeye. I'm keen to see where you go with this.

Nice productive weekend!

186k oil/filter change - her first while in my possession.
New fuel filter, new air filter, couple new vacuum hoses.
Figured out the P0031 code...

Fuel smell led to a seeping fuel hose under the passenger side injector cover. Tightened the clamp and all is well. Got rid of the other cover to clean the bay up. I may paint them and put em back on at some point.

Early Saturday morning I took her up to a northerly section of VT to meet a very cool Vermonter and strip some parts off an 07 Impreza hatch. Shoulda checked the weather, too cold to take pics! The car did great considering it ran for over seven hours straight and no hiccups. I kept it running the two hours I was there to warm up frequently.

Will grab pics of the loot later.

Oh yea, [suspension upgrades] ARE THE TRUTH.

Edit: Turns out I don't have coilovers, but seems to be a quality setup that handles better than anything I've driven.

Thanks, it's the cleanest car I've ever had, psyched to have a pretty much rust free start.

Last weekend's haul:

Swanky new steering wheel, installed.


Clutch master and slave cylinders.


I had a set of pedals for a GC, supposedly they'll fit pretty close, but I said screw it and got the real deal.

Figured this would clean the engine bay up nicely.


Then I picked these up closer to home. Stock WRX muffler and a midpipe good for a 3" DP to stock muffler.


Boost, here I come!

Well yea! But besides lack of boost + 5mt, not much else needs to be addressed. Little bit o' love for the body and a vibration I'm thinking is the rear diff, which won't be a problem for long...

I was thinking of swapping mine too, but I don't feel like having wiring done on this car. I may sell it soon.
