omg still have the car what a mess the past few years have been. cars coming back home soon as i get time to get a trailer down to where its parked. guess it got hit by hail again so body needs work and paint now aka its close to time to do the widebody kit. i got four pot calipers over the summer and just got a sti wing. working hard on having this car back i miss her alot. her slutty counterpart may actually come true and i may start my evo5 build i have wanted to for years now. hope to have pics of parts in a month to get with the rebuild and be back driving it next summer. got a promotion at work should allow more time to build my car

so fiddled with stuff scored a beat up old sti knock off wing and a sti grill. holy hell i have bought more for this car in the last month than i have in over a year. i need to get the head off to a machine shop to get new guides and valves put into them. trying to get my mustang motor in so i have a engine stand for the subaru motor so i can go though all the gaskets. forgot i need cv axles up front. if i put sti arms on the car do i need different axles and does the same apply for the back ?

Its been on the road for a month now. Took it to a cars and coffee suprised how many people asked me about it. Found even with my alignment it still pushes in the turn some throttle lift helps but am not brave enough to drive it in that deep. 4pots are nice but still having brake fad issues idk if my rears are just not doing anything or what. If i can keep from stuffing motors in other subarus i could maybe start fabbing up my header for my 3.0r to start my build. Also anyone know when the plastic intake manifolds start to melt i found some powder coat that i want to use but its bake temp is 400°F
