I remember this car...I looked it over for a guy who bought it for his son. would that be you?
Nope, they ended up trading it in after not being able to get the tune right. Thus, I got it from the Subie dealer in Franklin 900 miles later. :hsdance:

I talked to the original owner about it to verify everything was still the same. He helped me out with getting the old tune from Innovative...but I had to do more tuning after that. And still needs more. Had to do new(er) coils, O2 sensor, front wheel bearings, lots of NY bolt replacement, lots of rewiring (more to go), new stereo, fix oil leaks...and probably more that I can't remember. It took about 6 months before I could really even drive it.

Thank you sir! My friends and I doing all the work ourselves has been a bitch, but it's been awesome. Maybe I'll get to start on my '50 Chevy again someday...but this one's so much fun. :lol:

HOLY SHIT dude stole my car. Right down to the Hush exhaust.


I wanna race.
Haha! It's damn close. No PPG's for me though. I'm gonna stick with the STi drivetrain swap...when I get the money.
