that is a very large DP, excellent looking RS. Did you notice any difference going to the STi scoop over the RS?

Nice looking swap!

I like the DP but the stickers and the yellow fogs are a bit ricey for me. jmho

So are you satisfied with the performance vs cost of the WRX swap?

Ive been telling myself if I am gonna do it I am either going to do an STI swap or build my 2.5 block up and turbo it.
then again with gas the way it is and the wife using it as a dd we might just toss a set of rings and a head gaskets on it and keep beating it.

Thanks for the pics!
definitely inspiring.

i don't think his stickers are ricey given that he appears to actually drive it off road, and it actually is a WRX engine under the hood. Yellow fogs actually give greater visibility in the type of conditions in which they're intended to be used, i.e. fog/snow.
