This is a quick recap of how my WRX came to be. Keep scrolling, eventually you hit the big turbo 400whp stock longblockblock 2.0 good stuff.
When I was 19 I picked up a "rolling" shell of a 2004 WRX with a Chargespeed widebody. I caught a lot of flack from it (understandably, it was in rough shape) and was told that it would never become anything more than a pile. I like motivation like that, so I went straight to work. I think pictures tell the story better than words, so without further ado:
The pictures I took during the first few weeks I had this car were pretty terrible as you can see. Anyway, at this point you're probably in agreement with those who had doubts in the beginning.
I drove it with an EJ205 and a five speed for quite a long time. TD04, basic bolt ons, etc. which obviously didn't fit the car very well. Last year I put in an order to JDM racing motors, Robert is wonderful by the way.
