    New to the forum and a new Subaru owner

    Hey everyone, new to the forum and first time Subaru owner. Bought a 04 WRX STi on Christmas Eve with a bad motor, bought a 06 STi motor with 40,000 miles and swapped it in, motor is stock other than some bolt on stuff, has a Perrin turbo inlet tube, Perrin upgraded intercooler hoses under the tmic, Perrin downpipe with full Perrin exhaust.
    It has some aftermarket struts and lowering springs and sway bars and a Cobb AP, running 15lbs, runs really good and enjoy driving it. Already planning the motor build for the bad motor I took out
    The car is silver with the silver BBS wheels and the classic blue/black interiorClick image for larger version.

    Motion, I have about 8k in it including the other motor, I bought it because the rest of the car was in such good shape, the only blemish was the top of the wing the clear coat faded but I already fixed it, I paid 5k for the car and bought the motor for 2600 and had to put tires and a few other miscellaneous things. I did a bunch of research and I think I got a good deal. Did all the work myself so I didn't have to pay for the swap just my own time. The interior looks just as good as the exterior
