I am starting nursing school over the summer and looking for something a little more simple. Looking to gain interest in my car, not 100% committed to sell unless the right buyer comes along.

Originally a 2000 Subaru Impreza 2.5 RS

A little background behind the car...
Bought the car in 2011 with 76,000 miles with a clean title, mostly stock with a Cold Air Intake and an Exhaust. In the summer of 2012 I decided I wanted to do a turbo swap so I started researching.. and ended up with a 1998 V4 STi front clip from japan. Completely Swapped over The whole front end from the clip including the crossmember, axles, control arms from the STi. The work was done at my uncles shop mostly by me with the help of my uncle and the mechanics there. Around October 2012, I ended up spinning a Rod Bearing on the second rod due to being untuned running 18 psi.. Not the smartest.. But that bred a whole new chapter for this car.. The current setup is much much more..
Car Was completed January of 2013 and had its first tune at UMS on the 4th of january (originally pulled 265HP/ 305TQ to the wheels

The Body has 114k miles on it, and will be going up as it is my daily driver.

Im sure I have forgotten some stuff as I have done so much to this car after owning it for almost 3 years. I have babied this car, and taken care of it so well. Every problem I ever had with the car, was addressed immediately and always fixed correctly. Have invested well over 20k in the car alone

The car runs awesome. I built it to be very responsive, and be quick at the low end as well. Full boost by 3300 RPM, and pulls all the way to 6500 without hesitation. Definitely faster than most STi and WRX around its class.

Car has always been changed with 10W40 Motul Synthetic Oil, a very high quality oil, and OEM Subaru filters from the dealership.

If interested please contact me by call or text. No tire kickers please, I know what my car is worth, the amount of time and money I have spent here cannot be regained, but I won't let it go just because. The car is my baby.

Asking $13,000 OBO.. Money Talks.. Take notice that the pics are not currently what the car looks like as listed, Stock wheels and no more front lip.

My name is Jack
602-710-9320.. or feel free to pm me.. dont check RS25 as often anymore..

As you'll see are just a collection of pics from the couple years of owning it, from purcahse, to slight modifications when stock, to me buying my front clip, to me building the completely new motor after i blew the short block from the front clip.. please contact me if your want to see anything else.

Car is located in PHOENIX, ARIZONA.
