Default Evaded's Green Subaru.

Hey im Eric. Ive been on here for a bit now and decided to put together this journal. This is my second Subaru, my last one was a red 95L AWD. I loved that car so much in the short time I owned it. I had just started to mod it a bit, suspension, wheels, RS hood etc.

Then I was checking craigslist Austin (an hour from me) one morning, when I saw a green RS for sale.. yes (UNI). It was an all original Acadia green with goldies for $2200! I called.. it was sold.
I was heart broken and thought I would never find another one. The very next day on my local CL it was posted again! Guy was asking $4000, obviously he was just flipping it. I didnt care, I called.. met up with him settled on a price and bought it!

It was all original and completely stock and in amazing condition. Other than the blown headgasket which I should mention. It had 130k on it and tons of service paper work from the dealer. Even with the blown headgasket, the car ran great and never really got hot.
So my wife got pissed I bought another car, so a week later I sold my red L.

Heres how my Acadia Green RS got its start. Purchased car on 3/20/2009




Thanks for checking out my car. Ill be posting updates when I can, so come back and check it out.

First I had to get this guys exhaust sounding better. What better way than to add the Borla rep UEL header and a custom catback exhaust with OBX can,

Getting ready...






We went as straight back as we could.. 2.5" mmm.







A shot of the header



The old



The new



It sounds mean as shit!

Then came the head gasket job, this three weeks after I just did it on my L! Fun times.





Nothing like an old door as a make shift work table.

Lots of great cars
