Hello everybody! =), I think its time to introduce my self, so here I go..
First of all my name is Chris, Im 21 and currently I own a WRX STi 3 V Limited and its the 001/555 with 91.000 kms (at least it had 91.000 kms).
( since this is the 001/555 im gonna tell you the story of... how I found this car. I hope u guys wont get bored lol)
Before I owned this car I had a jdm Honda civic Eg and I used to say that subarus werent cool... ( sorry guys xD! ) then I change my mind... when I took a test drive to a 1992 impreza wrx with 142 k. I found it nice and I drove it slowly to see how it is... to be honest I was shocked, the awd feels nice and makes you feel safe. and I was quite excited with the wrx but my friend said. thats just a wrx. lets go and see a type RA!.. and I was !!!
then I took another test drive but this time it was the 1995 wrx type ra with 180 k.
this one had water spray and diff control. ( I fell in love lol)
the owner of the dealer said to me test it like if were your car lol
so I said ok! i did a 0-100 launch and I almost cry of happines hahahah!.
but the car had something that couldnt convince me...but I wanted to look somewhere else.. and I went to the last car dealer and while I was looking other imprezas v4 sti but they were more expensive.. and then my dad said: " chris! come take a look at this one.. so I ran and i saw it..!
I sat in it and it captivated me ( dont know if its the right word to say it lol)
its sparco steering wheel and everything.. then I remember when bobby bolivia in transformers said " The car picks the drive"
so I bought straigh away! lol!
before I decided to buy this car I drove the Rx7 and the Supra single turbo but none of them convinced, this sti was meant to be mine LOL!
hopefully nobody will get tired of my story hahaha I tried to resume it as much as possible xD!
Well this car came from japan with a fujistubo exhaust cat-back, the sparco steering wheel, pivot boost gauge, sti pink springs and its boosting 1.3 bar
However since here in my country I cant have RHD I had to convert it to LHD. <--- this is the worst part of everything u.u
Currently Im rebuilding the engine... !
I had a rod knock... on April and since then Ive been saving the money to rebuild it.. now Ive got almost all the parts..
and Hopefully this Wednesday I will give all the parts to my mechanic to finish it...
(Will start a new thread with the rebuild )
Before it had the rod knock... its gonna look a lot better when the rebuild is finished
