Default WRX Swap - 1998 2.5RS Coupe - 75k Miles

FOR SALE Ė CENTRAL MASSACHUSETTS

1998 Impreza 2.5RS - 2 Door Coupe
2006 WRX Swap (USDM EJ255 turbo engine, drivetrain and interior)

Engine/Drivetrain Mileage: 75,000
Chassis Mileage - 3XX,XXX

Dyno Tuned at DSG 220WHP/298WTQ (dyno sheet included below)
No Check Engine Light


In 2008, I purchased a stock 1998 Impreza 2.5RS with a blown motor and a 2006 WRX donor car with 45,000 miles on the drivetrain, which had experienced a side impact. I stripped both cars to bare chassis and swapped all relevant parts from the WRX into the RS. This includes the EJ255 engine with TD04 turbo, 5 speed manual transmission, steering rack, rear differential, front and rear subframes, axles, wheel knuckles, 4/2 pot brake calipers, fuel pump, full interior including dash bar and wiring harness merge. I daily drove the car for the next 5 years, before putting it on weekend duty when I picked up my FXT in 2013. It is still registered and insured, with a valid NY state safety inspection.

Iíve done the majority of the work myself, in my home garage. The drivetrain has low miles and has only ever required routine maintenance. The engine does not burn a noticeable amount of oil and the head gaskets have never failed. Recently replaced maintenance items include Yokohama tires, brake calipers, pads and rotors, spark plugs, engine oil, coolant and transmission /differential lube. The car was dyno tuned at Dent Sport Garage (DSG) in 2009, when the build was completed. Dyno results included below. All modifications are as follows.

Brand New Yokohama Tires
Brand New (Reman) Brake Calipers (2006 WRX 4/2 Pot)

Engine & Drivetrain:
2006 WRX EJ255 with TD04 (Dyno Tuned by DSG)
2006 WRX 5 Speed Manual Transmission
Stainless Steel 3in Downpipe & Midpipe
Borla Hush Axleback
K&N Intake
2006 WRX Fuel Pump
2006 WRX Rear Differential & Driveshaft
2006 WRX Axles, Hubs & Knuckles
Exedy Stage 1 street clutch (25k miles)

Suspension & Brakes:
2006 WRX Front & Rear Subframes, control arms etc.
2006 WRX Rear Sway Bar
KYB GR2 Struts (25k miles)

2006 WRX ECU & Wiring Harness

Exterior:

JDM V3 STi Rear Bumper
JDM V3 Rear Clear Taillights
Clear Corner Lights
2.5RS Sideskirts
Rallysport Mud Flaps
Front Bug Deflector (Not Pictured)

The car is in excellent mechanical condition, with a relatively stock low mileage drivetrain that has been reliable for years. The car runs strong and is a blast to drive with the conservative dyno tune. The interior is in good condition and the aftermarket sound system works great. There are no check engine lights.

The body is starting to show its age. Itís predominantly clean and the original paint has held up well, however there are some dents and the corner panel rust is significant. For years now, the 3rd and 4th gear synchro will grind if shifts arenít rev matched. The airbags are not currently wired. Both heat and A/C are functional, but the blower is speed is fixed and the A/C leaks water under the dash during prolonged use.

ASKING $9,900

GLWS! Lot's of hours in this project.
Rust doesn't look too bad compared to the 25rs's that are still left on the road.
