Story:
My second car I ever owned was a 2001 L. I bought it because I needed something reliable, that got better gas milage than the previous Suburban I had, and would get me up our massive hill in the winter. So it was perfect, until I had a slight fender bender. That fender bender was actually a good thing because I would be fixing it myself and when searching for parts and info I found my new addiction, RS25.com. I began modding it on top of the fixes I was doing, with the attitude "Well this is broken I might as well upgrade it". I also replaced things that didn't need fixing as well and ended up with a supper stiff stock 2.2 L with a few body upgrades and rice. (I'm glad I got that out of my system 4 years ago). But here is how she looked.



Next I made a bad decision I gave up the L for a rs. A lemon of an rs to be exact. I rushed looking for one payed to much and bought it at night 4 hours away and got stuck with a bunch of problems including burning oil and coolant and a slipping clutch. So I rebuilt the engine and got rid of it before I went out of the country for a few months. Here was the lemon.


For the next year and a half I went on a subaru hiatus. I found my dream truck and began a full frame off restoration on my 71 k-10 chevy. Here is how my other baby currently sits as she is almost done.


So that brings us to now. Early 2012 I was searching every night looking for a already swapped subie to buy. I would have loved to pick up a shell and build one from the ground up myself but right now I dont have the time to do that. Any who, after many emails and hours of searching I finally zeroed in on one that seemed perfect for me. Many of you may recognize this rsti as it was one of the first swaps to be done by ECS. So after making the 9 hour drive up to Washington DC I purchased Mikes old subaru (Legacy2003). More info can be found on it here Mike's 2000 JDM Ver. 7 RSTI RA GC8



The day I got it

I put in some 3 gauge wire to my amp. There was tiny 12 gauge on it before. It sounds a lot better. It super thick, thicker than my jumper cables.
