    Finally got my wrx... The hard way

    been new to the subi game for a bout a year and a half. built Hondas for about 8 years... started out with a very clean 97 outback that I got from the car lot I work at we sell mostly used subaru's it was a 5 speed with 220 on it loved that car but after that I wanted to learn these cars I've wanted a wrx for about 6 years not knowing what I'd be getting into... anyway I worked my as off and finally picked up an 02 wrx WRB supposed to have engine rebuilt had pics and receipts well 3 hours after I bought it I spun a bearing... I lost it it I got screwed but anyway I get a motor with new timing belt and everything else that's needed well guy set cam wrong and it had a bent valve so he made right for parts only well now I have a 2.5 bottom end with forged internals and 2.0 top end heads, turbo, intake manifold ect. And found out there's an 04 transmission in it. So while getting motor done the clutch slave went bad the line went bad and the master cylinder is now bad out of no where I finally finished it all up today except for the master but will be done tomorrow and I can finally drive this thing but I now own 3 subis my wrx, I have a 9 the legacy like 5 speed as my daily and the wife has a 99

    Well this is a sad story, but I can't say I'm surprised.

    I hope it all works out :-/
