    bugeye project

    I'm still pretty new but I bought an 02 wrx a while back (it was a salvage car for $1500 couldnt pass it up) but never posted pics of it so here they are. Its a project so its gonna b a while before its done. So far ive bought radiator, turbo, exhaust, wheels, hood, ac condenser, tmic...yeah I think thats it for now. Still need a bpv, radiator support (which is extremely hard to find), front bumper, bumper reinforcement, couple subframe parts, and couple pipes and such.

    OUCH! you sure the motor is ok? It at least had to have damaged the pulleys.

    I wouldn't be able to pass that up either, I would have waaayyy to much fun putting it all back together. It's like a big erector set, just much faster

    haha i know man, the thing thats killin me is that i live 2 hrs away from the car cause im in college so i rarely get to work on the car. I really dont know if there is engine damage so far all i've taken off is the fmic, I'm waiting to get a couple more parts to hopefully get the engine going.

    Awesome project! Is the front drive train ok?

    I have a feeling that FMIC was feeding the stock snail.....
