I used a WRX coolant header tank with a custom bracket, mounted on the passenger side strut tower to feed coolant to the turbo. For return, I used a 1/2" hose and returned it to the passenger side cylinder head. Make sure that if you use a WRX header tank, disable the stock radiator cap vent valve by removing the plunger. You need that nipple open for the coolant to overflow from the header tank to the radiator. I have the header tank w/cap and bracket if you want it. $30 shipped USPS Priority and its yours!! I'll even include instructions if you need it.

For oil feed, I had a custom braided line/banjo fitting made at a local hydraulic shop, with an oil restrictor for the BB section of my VF34. For return, I used a straight 5/8" rubber hose also returning at the passenger side cylinder head.

I would, but Hawaii only allows 6 characters for license plates.

Unless I do "OK USA"

-Just slapped unpainted V5/6 front lip and fog covers (not pictured).


-Replaced the airbox, threw in a K&N panel filter, and made a DIY CAI from the other car's piping. Installed a Hyper Ground kit (also not pictured)


-Replaced the beat up Stromung muffler for a Magnaflow muffler.


That's it. It's still slow. :(

OMG dude your avatars are hilarious...
I think this is my favorite.

Not so soon. We're prioritizing our debt still. Won't be for a couple years.

Yo Joe I Joined the 2.5l side too with a 2000 Legacy Brighton Wagon.

I always liked this body-style Legacy & like that it is bigger than my OBS & it has anchor points for up to 3 car seats in the rear (I only use 2 of these spots).

It is stick & has a K&N drop-in air filter, OBX EL headers, Prodrive Axleback, 2.25" midpipe, H&R springs on fresh struts, Ebay crank pulley, 17mm RSB, 17x7.5 Rota Action Wheels, 215/45-17 tires, Tint, Rear Spoil, & JDM Front Bumper.

I have JDM Tails & Side skirts to go on the car & although it beats the hell out of our old '96 OBS it is SUPER Slow compared to my OBS-t....lol....

Agreed. There are members that tell you to get a WRX when they don't even own one...NASIOC for instance, and some here.....

Carlos, are you ghetto boosting your "brand used" 2.5L too?

The only reason it irritates me is because they talk to me like I have NO idea what I am talking about.

However, it is very motivating to get it done.
