sub’d for impending awesomeness. nice work so far!
Werd, I didn't want to sound like a f*boy lolol but I felt the same. How did your car run on that factory ECU? Noticeably smoother, or any more aggressive, than let's say a slightly modded non-STi WRX? I figure the years gap could be a decent comparison, though I also don't know how aggressive your own build may have been.My V2 STi swap only has a regular ECU. I plan to chip it for US gas no problem as well as tune it.
Yours is much cooler with the STi spec logo. Shit some sweet wall art if anything.
Thanks, good man!! I appreciate the support! I'll try my best, haha. To hit my target, the build is as important to me to contribute back to the community, as it is receiving its resources.! ::sniff-sniff:: lololsub’d for impending awesomeness. nice work so far!
Lolol I'm gonna say "nyet" lol b/c if it comes down to that, and I swap the roofs, I'd go lightweight carbon & eliminate the the sunroof all-together. But to keep it real with ya, that's a loooong ways off, although I do intend on lightening things, that'll be in the bodywork phase.. & I'd have to score the roof first. That, and against "true" RA-spec, I don't plan on eliminating amenities such as power windows, & other things I'm planning on adding ? I don't intend on just claiming it's an RA for kicks and giggles, even though it's just the drivetrain, I do plan on keeping her light.. she's no 3000GT LOLdont remember reading it..but are gonna realy really RA this car and swap out roofs and roof vent it?
Ya.... Naw. Lolol. That's a lot of work and while I give props to people who do it, that's not really my thing. If I wanted a right hand drive car, I would just import one. Part of the point of the build is to rectify the obscurity we had gotten as our so-called top of the line Impreza hahaOr RHD firewall? <img src="http://www.rs25.com/forums/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" />
werd, keeping that image in my mind keeps the flame under my rear, lol. the thread and end project isnt just for myself, but for like-minded folks who want to witness the transformation. We go though our daily lives with whatever b/s we all have.. popping a squat and enjoying some car porn is a nice imaginary getaway, even if temporary. Sharing this is my way of giving back :blol:Can’t wait for the finished product
Thanks a lot, man!!! I'm glad you had continued her, was it a WRX RA, or a WRX STiType RA? Coupe, or 4 door? I'd love to hear how those gears were, she must've boogied..!!Good luck on your build! First I’m seeing it. I had a V2 Type RA when i lived in Japan and i loved it so much i sold my ‘07 and brought the RA back in pieces to rebuild. I look forward to seeing your progress and finished product.
