Today I finally got to installing the WRX RSB



I was so proud of my self when I busted loose that big ass bolt and installed my first lateral link I had to snap a pic :banana:



Definitely one of the best upgrades like everyone says the car handles sooooo much better! So worth all that hard work!


And these I just took and they came out sick so why not post them

That's a good start man those WRX wheels give it a nice look! The headlights i got them from ebay and they were a decent price. The RSB was off a 02 WRX and i didnt need to mod anything everything bolted right up, check this link out I used it and it helped a lot

YES!!!! I finally found an ej22


it came off a 96 subaru legacy it was such a lucky find cuz the car had 89k miles on the clock and perfect compression on all 4 cylinders so i had to take it on the spot :)

So i did what i love to do and started wrenching away!

here is one of the few pics i took during the swap on the right its the ej22 with the ej18 intake manifold and you guessed it the left is the naked ej18


ej22 finally in the car :noes:


well since the ej22 has single port heads and i dint feel like buying single port UEL headers since the ones i have already are UEL i talked to the welder guy that did my exhaust and he said he could adapt the manifold and i gotta say he did an excellent job for $50



I have to say i love the power difference it isn't a crazy difference but its just right everything about just makes it 100x more fun to drive and the way she gets sideways in the dirt is just perfect couldn't be happier

here are a couple videos after i was done first one is once i got it running while it was straight header
2nd is once the exhaust was back on
