Started this thread 2 years after purchase, but here's my story. Bought from a little old lady with 58k. 4 door, minor Subaru rust, crappy motor, and an even crappier 4eat. Multiple head jobs and finally an ej251 replacement and 5MT swap around 100k. Typical GC8 parts and such listed below.

AND SO THE STi SWAP BEGINS..

Weekend recap:

Picked this V5 wing up on 6/15.


Inb4 woman driver comments.


Tear down and shenanigans.



Don't even ask if this is a part out. I already have parts lined up to be running in a week or so and to be looking sexy again in no more than a month.

I'm looking for v5/6 RS style bumper and bumper beam on the cheap.** CHECK

ANYWAYS, keeping my mind occupied with painting this wing. :)

Tiguan + Winch = Pro frame pulling.




Looking somewhat normal now. Test fitting rad/ac condenser tomorrow. May be able to salvage lower rad supports and left and right supports! Woo!
