Hello,

I was wondering what people thought I should sell this girl for? Update sold her to a dedicated prezzie lover. I feel good that she will be taken care of.

Background story........The factory SOHC engine was replaced with an STI engine and the computer was changed and nope, all the kings horses and all the kings men couldn't put her back together again. So its needs an engine most likely unless you have some trick. I need to fix my other Subi, baby girl 2002 WRX Bugeye the oil pan has metal shavings in it so I need an engine.

But this RS has these parts and more. I will be trading out same exact wheels that are on both cars. The orange ones in the pic will be Silver instead. I also might take the injectors. Unless someone is in love with it as it is and offers more there are winter tires on it now as it was supposed to be for racing at WinterX games but I also have the all seasons and racing tires if wanted.

The parts list:

STI short block core
Impreza Long with ACL Race Series Rod and Main bearing set
Wiseco forged flat top racing pistons 10:1
Replaced clutch
New Paint Job
Body kit
kw variant 2 coil overs
White line bushings
White line sway bars
Cusco adjustable rear control arms
STI front control arms
Subaru upgraded TR 4 pot brakes
Four Upgraded wheels (I have a fifth too
New Dunlap winter tires
Upgraded Stereo (maybe look for model) and speakers in the doors
Aluminum hood JDM
Japanese tail lights (clear bottoms)
5 point seatbelts
Side white lights
Sti fog covers
Upgraded Top mount
Upgraded intake
Mishimoto radiator
Custom exhaust
Cusco Front strut tower brace
I think there is a rear strut tower
AEM EMS4
There is a second AEM computer
TOMEI UNIVERSAL FUEL PRESSURE REGULATOR
Gauged Pod and dual band gauges
JDM Impreza STI seats
Bumper bar deletes (both from and rear)
Subaru Impreza WRX STi Top Feed Injector Set (4) OEM Blue 560cc Denso
WALBRO 255LPH FUEL PUMP 02-10 SUBARU WRX / STI ALL
Not sure what that rally seat belt bar is behind the seats

What's the condition, underneath? Rear sunframe, rockers, strut towers, etc?

What's the location of the car?

For your sake.. where did the STI ej257, come from?
Was it running when you bought it? How many miles?

I would just use the ej257, in your bugeye, if it was a running motor.

Swap your intake cams and cam gears(non avcs) and have your bugeye tuned, with the ej257.
Use your 2L coils and plugs.

Most of it from suspension to engine are new. There has easily had 10K put in for upgrades. Again this was going to be a professional racer for where I live and like to drive at Utah Motor Sports Campus and NASA etc. Just the engine to me trashed and I wouldn't spend anymore on it. I just want my WRX fixed.

Yeah it was running and an expensive long block. Using the regular but big turbo. I think from what I can gather after research. Metric took the the STI long block and when bored/honed it, it must be off thus the sensors don't like it (my assumption). I have 2 different computers It starts but I have low compression in cylinder1. Honestly if someone actually figured it out this car is 100% the best RS. I just need my WRX engine. I cannot use the RS engine. I am hoping to sell this RS to pay for my WRX. Like I said I was laid off and don't want to spend out of pocket just yet.

Do you know if a 2003 WRX engine fits good with my 2002 WRX? 2L,H4 (122CI) VIN(2)? Thank you for your suggestion BTW.

Thinking about it. That RS was supposed to be there lol. But I just sold it. They're talking about going there. If my wrx is back up I might have to take it there for a bit.
