    Do you have a great condition classic BugEye Impreza? Want gorgeous footage of it to use for whatever you want? I'm looking for a white 2002 or 2003 Impreza with the famed BugEye headlights to use for my independent film project. I have owned this exact car for almost 20 years (in February)...

  3. Tuning: Electronic Engine Management
    I just picked up an 02 wrx with a spun bearing, the engine is already out and I have a donor 2.5 to build. Anyways I was looking at the turboxs utec for engine management, but I see zero support in 2022 for this thing. I'd like to try it but If I can't find the files to install it's pretty much...

    Doing some research for this post, it sounds like I may have a leak but I wanted to ask for your opinion on the over shape of the engine. My question is, does this sound like classic coolant leak, or do you think its just a symptom of a larger issue? Below are some deets I can smell coolant...

    Ended up with an untitled 09 wrx. Been dealing with trying to get a title from the last owner for months n I’m bout over it. Thinking about buying a bugeye and doing a complete swap. Only thing I’m worried about is the ECU, or the wiring more generally because this is my first swap. Fab work...

    2002 Subaru WRX, bought it knowing I’d need to put some work into it. I just thought my dad would be able to help but he’s busy with his own things so I’m dipping into this all by myself.

  10. Engine Modifications
    I bought a 2002 wrx a few months back, its had the motor swapped over to a jdm, seems properly done. But there's a new issue thats arisen. I've been doing research on the headers and I'm not entirely sure that the headers I have are correct, and if they are they certainly don't look proper. Not...

    I have a 03 WRX wagon I bought for $3k, and I've put about $2k in repairs into it (replacing fuel lines and exhaust). It has 107k miles but the previous owner didn't have a garage to store it for MN winters, so naturally the rust has gotten really bad, all the panels would need to be replaced...

    So I was changing the timing kit on my 2000 Impreza and my right side cam (drivers right) move a bit. I can just move this back tho right if the crank is at Tdc. But when I went to move it back it felt like it wasn’t doing anything when being turned. I don’t even know where to begin with this...

    I have a 2002 Wrx. I bought it with a blown engine so I swapped it out for a good one. The car has a bigger turbo, bigger intercooler, cold air intake, and some other stuff.

    I just wanted to see if anyone could confirm that the 2002-03 front glass is the same as the 2004-07 model's. I need a new windshield for my '03 but all I can find online and locally are '04+ glass. Thanks!
