Welcome to my Build journal
I have always loved the GC8/GF8 Models so I decided to finally go along and build one.
picked up this 99 GF8 one owner from the dealership a year ago for around 400$ had a lot of Subaru parts around so I threw on the WRX bonnet, Interior, JDM STI wheels, D2 Coilovers, and HKS Silent Muffler the same day
and it all began from there.
My JDM STI finally blew its motor, after having several different setups on it, and enjoying the car very much, its had its time and now will donate most its parts to the GF8 Build.
Before I get any questions I also own a 04 USDM Spec STI running 534whp on its last dyno pull, just incase anyone asks why im swapping my GD 04 for a 99 GF lol
and so today the Build Begins
I will try my best to update progress day by day.
Step 1 Get cars out of the House !!
04 Smoking !
1 Out 1 to go
Ofcourse it didn't want to start today..
And as always in the Middle east Safety first with the tow truck driver rocking sandles !!
On our way to the industrial area where the swap will be done
Unloading the 04...Shame It died pulled 380 whp on a stock block at some point
My 99 GC8 Half cut will use the engine and some other parts off it for the build
And that's day one !
Tomorrow we start with the actual swap and build.
Rear Subframe, Fuel tank & Pump, Gear box, axels, brakes. from the 04
Engine, wiring and ecu from the half cut.
once its all up and running, fender flairs, rear skirts and a full paint job.
Your comments, Replies, and any tips will be much appreciated
thanks for reading.
