Phew! I'm good friends with Michael. When he told me that someone was paying for the car with Paypal I got sketched. Glad to see its someone from RS25. The car is super rust free and can be flawless with just a little bit of work. I thought about buying it from him but I didn't want to swap everything over myself.I also have been in discussion with a guy in Ohio who had the solution to my rust epidemic. After a few weeks of deliberation I am the proud new owner of a RUST FREE 2001 2.5RS Shell! I should be taking delivery in the next week or two. Not sure if I want to swap everything over immediately or if I'm going to wait until I destroy my current shell. Only time will tell. Comes with the WRX wheels, stock L suspension, WRX rear end, and bugeye interior bits. Also has a sunroof delete waiting to be welded on.
I think that's what I paid for my long runner and for short runner. Sold the short running for $50 so only spend $30! Totally worth it all day long! Mine is all cleaned up and welded but I still need to make an adapter for the TB.Interesting. I'll have to look into it. I got this one for $40 from a local guy on craigslist. Couldn't pass it up for that!
I remember you mentioning that Brian. I know my brother had good luck using the rear port as well as a few other builds I've read. We'll see when it's game time if it's good or not. You just had the factory dummy switch, eh?i'm concerned for you on that rear port. that's where i had issues creating oil pressure.
