    Talking About time.

    Hey folks! I guess I should formally introduce myself. Been browsin' around, contributing and of course, stirrin' things up a bit in the past couple of weeks. New to this forum but I have been apart of the Subaru communities for almost 3 years now. I live in Southern California and worked for Garage Tuning for about 8 months where I did pretty much everything you could imagine to a Subaru (ie. - Swapped a Forester XT motor into a '95 Legacy GT Wagon). I definately know most of the mechanical issues, I've rebuilt motors (Thank God for diagrams), I'm just not experienced with wiring, but once I get my project going in a little bit, I will need to learn. Fun stuff!

    Enough about me, here is what I drive: 2001 Subaru Impreza 2.5RS

    Car as it looks now:


    Car as it looked when I bought it:


    So, not too many changes. Here are a few of the things I've done:

    -H&R Sport
    -KYB AGX
    -Whiteline Rear Adjustable Swaybar (22-24)
    -Whiteline Front Swaybar (21mm)
    -Whiteline Solid Endlinks (F&R)
    -Cusco-esk Front Strut Tower Bar (JDM Land Freebie)
    -Custom SARD SS Brakelines
    -Wilwood 570 Brake Fluid
    -Endless pads
    -DBA Gold Drilled & Slotted Rotars
    -Borla Headers
    -Stromung 2.5" Dual Tip Axleback
    -Alpine Deck, Mono AMP, Quad-Channel AMP, 12" Kicker CompVR Sub, Infinity Reference 6.5" Speakers all around
    -Had 35% Tint up front and 25% on the rear however I had to remove the front tint due to a fix-it ticket.
    -Wingless until I have my 22B Sport Reprica wing painted to match.

    So, all in all I have made most of my improvements to my suspension and braking. Getting the car somewhat set-up for AutoXing this summer and then eventually a built 2.0L Turbo motor. Anyways, thanks for reading!

    Cheers,
    -Brian

    Welcome, that's a nice looking Impreza. I love the older style in 2-door. I only wish they still offered the coupe. The black/black scheme looks great.

    Thanks guys. It looks like I may have to push-up my plans for a new motor, which sucks because it's not really in the budget. But burning 4 quarts of oil in a little less than 1 month doesn't make me feel good about myself (This is what happens when an 17 year old owns the car prior to you, who doesn't know how to drive and completely screws up the car). But yay for more power! Oh and so you know, I know I can just fix the seals, but if I'm going to pull my motor I might as well just put a newer more powerful BUILT motor in it's place.
