    Newb to Subaru's

    Whats up guys. Name is Charley from Louisiana. Ive been racing and such for over 8 years and came across this Scubie I couldnt pass up. Picked it up for $1500. Guy I got it from took it all apart to replace turbo inlet but has a baby on the way and doesnt have time to put it back together. Heres the parts list (brand new still in the box) I feel like I just paid for parts and happen to get a car with it.

    FMIC
    Catless downpipe
    Up Pipe
    High flow turbo inlet
    255 Walboro pump
    Cobb intake
    High flow fuel rails(not sure what kind havent opened them up yet)
    Manual boost controller(will not be putting on, I have a electronic one from my old car)
    20g turbo
    Turbo manifold
    Oil catch can

    The only thing wrong with the car without being able to drive it is the cam seal is leaky which will be fixed while Im getting it back on the road. Will check crank seal and water pump while Im in there. Any other suggestions?

    Dang 1500! What year? Sounds like a good deal even if it does have problems.

    Its a '03. Was running and driving before he put it down. Only been sitting for about a month. Very clean no dents scratches etc. He did however rip off the rear bumper putting it onto the trailer he gave me a new one just needs some paint which is no big deal. Car has 120xxx miles

    Sounds like you got a pretty good deal, as long as you have the know how to put it all back together.

    Welcome.

    If it's a clean shell, then that alone could be worth $1500. Let's see pics and build thread!

    Its a very clean shell. Will post some pictures in a second. Ive built a few motors but never a boxer. Have been doing alot of research. Seems straight forward to get her running again. Only bad thing is the guy cracked the rear bumper, new one is on but its primered. Ill have it painted while I'm getting it back together. Ill take a bunch of pictures for a build thread! Also will be in the market for STI seats and some interior pieces that the previous owner painted blue (yuckkkkkkk!!!!!!!)
