Original post below from seller. The car was recently tested at a top Subaru Repair and Performance shop in OC and is in decent shape considering its age. The main consideration would be some rust spots under the car for the next buyer. Please search CL in OC for the add to contact me or use the contact form on my website.

Those look like WRX heads, therefore it isnt a “full STi swap”, but anyone with that kind of money to spend would probably be able to figure that out easily.

Dude, are you really using keywords?

Its a great deal nontheless for the price. I would buy it if I saw it in person. But I have had reaaaaaally bad luck with purchasing cars from CA and shipping them to MD. One was a pos as big as a tree. And the other two... the guy took the money and did not want to send the cars. Took me a month to get the cash back.
