Hey guys, my names joel and im 20 years old. I've been working on cars, mostly hondas, acuras, bmw audi and vw since I was like 12-13.
I've owned 2 audi a4's both heavily modded, one with a k04 turbo, the other stock k03 but a lot of other work done, a 92 civic with a high compression d series and than that blew up because of me, went to a high comp (11.5:1) jdm b18c in it and it never got running. I had friends pull the motor and put it in my buddys 94 ls shell with some other of my stuff on it and i bought that. that was like 3 months ago. ive sunk thousands into that car only to decide to part it out for a wrx. although I still have the car, it was supposed to be a track car. I havent driven it in like 2 or 3 weeks and i already really miss it. its still in 1 piece though, minus the stereo.
I'll post a link to it rather than just listing most of the stuff i have on it. keep in mind i have a ton of other parts for the car sitting not installed..
my 1994 Acura Integra LS - Mischief Forum
The car is covered in vinyl cause the paint sucks.
ANYWAYS on to the Subaru part of my life. my buddy since I was like 15-16 had a 01 gc8 4 door. the thing is bone stock with the exception of 35% tint and a drop in k&n. That car I have always loved. I've also got a buddy with an 07 sti. Those were the 2 most prominent subarus in my life so far haha.
my integra isnt practical to drive in PA in the winter, I live in MD now, and am moving up to Blairsville, PA in september to start school at wyotech. So I need something practical there.
So I was at a dealership back in ohio where I used to live, and I saw a dark grey/charcoal/black 02 WRX, i was currious and it turned out it had been on the lot for 5 hours and they hadnt cleaned it or anything.
It has 39k miles on it. Right there it had my attention. so we got to talking and i basically got set on buying it.
Its dropped on H&R Coilovers, and has, turboxs 4" bellmouth DP, turboxs utec delta, turboXS up pipe, turboxs 3 inch catback, aps top mount ic, forge open atmosphere bov , aem wideband, autometer boost, autometer oil pressure, not hooked up. its been resprayed a dark charcoal color, version 6 sti RA gears, version 6 synchros, and a 6 puck clutch, ARC intake box, hallman mbc :/ , and i think pullies on it. I believe theres a little more but im forgetting it if there is. the last thing, is it has 4 pot brakes upfront, they say subaru on them. like theyre definatley scooby brakes, i just dont know what kind they are. which makes it challenging to do new brake pads. ill post pics when i get it. i have some ones from facebook now that i posted up but i hope to have it in a week.
the only down side to it, i have to part my integra for it. the only thing im keeping is my sub, amp and headunit.
I dont really know what i want to do with the car yet, the first thing i ordered for it was 2 sets of hella supertones and a set of hella tri tone air horns. None of my previous cars have had horns so there a luxury to me haha.
well just basically wanted to say hey, ive just been on here for the last week nonstop looking for places to buy stuff and doing a lot of research.
thats really all.
anyways, thats the basis of my story, it goes in depth a lot more but thats the main parts, just dropping in to say hey and i hope to be around here a lot.
