    well, for a little update, she started over heating on me at after the dry lake bed race because i had a couple hoses swapped (the hoses that run over the stock intake box into the upper reservoir). i put them back and was still having an overheating problem. lead me to think i had a blown head gasket. now, ive burped the system and pulled the thermostat and she is not heating up over normal running temperature. my next race isnt till March so im gonna put my thermostat back in and burp it really good and see if she over heats... if that doesnt fix the problem, im gonna pull the motor and have the heads redone.

    Hey, I found one shopping last night with less miles that's on a salvage title at a stealership, you know you want to get in on that lol.

    Cars for Sale: 2006 Subaru Impreza WRX STI in Bedford, OH 44146: Sedan Details - 320860097 - AutoTrader.com

    Build a rally car from a stealership mystery machine? What's the worst that could go wrong? I mean come on, they assure you that the engine and transmission work, and it starts and drives - for 17k what more can ya ask?! lol. I bet you could get that car for 12k

    OP, awesome thread, amazing life you're living, and I'm really jealous of you right now. My only requirement when I look for a house is extra garage space and/or a steel building, so that I can live this same dream haha.

    Keep us posted on what happens with this thing! Any suspension upgrades yet?
    I want to fill my parking spot with WRX Why won't Subaru let me?!
