There is a lot of history to my relationship with this car. Let me try to be brief. The car started life as my step-mom's '94 Impreza L AWD. Crank windows, manual locks, 2580 lbs. Garage kept...perfect project car. It was passed down to me, and I had Rallispec do their magic w/a '94 WRX EJ20G. I had the most enjoyable 20k miles of my life in that swap. A year later I slid into a tree, and sold off the driveline to a guy in Tennessee who now has it in his '97 Impreza and runs mid 12's w/my old set-up.
Anyway, the damage was limited to the passenger side fender. I was enticed into buying a jdm front clip again last march, and this time set out to do the work myself...however, I've probably spent a total of 20-25 hours on the project, most of which has involved stripping down the front clip. For the past 8 months I've lived near Philly and am rarely in the Atlantic City area to work on the project (its at my parent's house sitting in my garage w/stock steelies), so I'm considering selling the whole she-bang.
You get everything necessary for the swap:
'94 Impreza L AWD, currently gutted and awaiting its new motor/tranny...the jdm 4.111 rear is already installed, along w/the jdm rear suspension and disc brakes. When this car was on the street, I had people constantly assuming the car was 1-2 years old, the paint and body are THAT good. Body has 180k miles, but you'd NEVER know it.
'93 WRX motor/tranny/ecu/harness/suspension/brakes/hood/turbo-back exhaust/xmember, etc w/55k miles (240 hp...comes w/powerful TD05-16g, easily capable of 350 hp w/accompanying mods...anyone unfamiliar with the 16g need only do a search to find out more). The jdm motor also comes w/a more streetable 8.5 to 1 compression ratio, which improves off-boost response, spool up, and makes running the larger 16g turbo more streetable.
I have the entire front clip, so turbo front crossmember is included. I also have the jdm exhaust from the front clip. I even have the jdm hood w/jdm scoop and vents, so this car will be one of a kind. What's more, the front clip was the EXACT same bright red as this car, so no painting is necessary. I have a replacement fender for the one that I ruined. The engine bay is shows slightly where I slid into the tree, but once the new fender is on, I don't think it will be noticable.
I really want to finish this project, but its just not happening, and I'm now prepared to sell this off and take a loss. I'm willing to let this go for $5000 OBO at this point. Once finished this will be a hot car. For pics of the car, see pages 4 and 6 of this link (if you're set on 25 posts/page): http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/sho...mp;pagenumber=4
If it suits the buyer, we can arrange to have the car and front clip transported to Rallispec for the swap, you just need to contact Rallispec, as all pricing/labor is between you and them. I am simply willing to deliver the car and driveline components to their shop. Otherwise, everything is here and ready for pickup. The car can be rolled around currently).
Hit me up w/any questions.
