    Neither. Maintain it with authentic parts according to Subaru's schedule and drive it as is until the doors melt off. Then pick another car and repeat the process.

    Mine just passed 150k on my stock bottom end, my tranny was rebuilt like 60k miles ago. Im stage 3 and my car has no knock at all on a nice tune. I DO plan on replacing the motor though for a hybrid build in the future. So I guess if you want to replace the motor and tranny in the future do whatever you want to it, just research before you buy anything so your not wasting any money.

    I hate to say this, but with a name like "wrxdrifter" you might want to reconsider owning an AWD car.

    Whys that? I tear shjt up in the snow because im not talented enough to do it in rain or dry pavement. That said, my friend who lives like a street over drifts his 02 at like every single midnight madness. Just takes more skill than a RWD car. His is now a RWD subby tho lol. Ill post a link to his build thread if you want, its on Stlsubaru.com.

    drifting in snow or rain is one thing. Drifting on pavement? That will destroy your center diff in short order.
