    Cool 2002 wrx bugeye build! First build.

    This is my first "project" that i plan investing some bucks in to. First off. I bought this 2002 wrx at 109,000. It was an RS 2.5l impreza that was converted to WRX, the previous and only owner did EJ20 swap with the TD04 turbo, intercooler, strut and sway bars, differentials , ECU, Ect. It was mainly stock besides and stage 2 clutch, short shifter, and a invidia n1 catback exhaust. So i figured i have a pretty good base to build off of. Here we go.....

    So figured i would do some routine maitenance before modding.

    1. Timing belt and water pump
    2. Front and rear breaks.
    3. front slotted rotors.
    4. A/c pulley.
    5. Radiator ( was told there was a small leak somewhere)




    Now time for her first country cruise.!

    Next thing........I did not care for my stock shift knob. Its was heavily used and not much stickyness left to the leather. So i looked up these sickspeed rally striped shift knob.. Made with some temperate metal the keeps from getting really hot or really cold. also the actual material is white and black. it is not painted so wont scratch or fade. very easy install.Attachment 110232

    Its time to go stage 2.................................................


    1. Grimmspeed Manual Boost Controller ( this thing is pretty sweet when it comes to the cheaper route going with a MBC instead of EBCS. Kinda of regret not just divying up another 20 bucks for a used GrmmSpeed EBCS with way more features and far better performace. But for MBC, this is as good as it gets, has a +/- boost psi adjustment system. Each click counter or clockwise is 1/4 psi +/-. Performs pretty well. Can be set at 0-60 psi with just one spring. .

    2. Invidia bellmouth catless downpipe - name says it all

    3. Defi Blue Racer Electronic Boost Gauge - Once again, name says it all.

    I'm local to you, and have a couple things for sale. Does the 2.5i have WRX suspension, or the standard Impreza stuff?

    Edit: Nevermind, saw that all the swaybars and such got converted. Anyways, here's what I've got: OR: 2003 Bugeye Parts (OEM and Aftermarket) + Gauges!
