great thread, I think I may be doing this in the future. I have an 04 rs I picked up for $4000 with a salvage title. I am going to try to find a good donor with some rear end damage for around $8000, and swap everything over. $12000 for an sti isnt too bad. I will also enjoy doing it all myself, and having rs insurance will be nice too. Maybe put a FMIC to make it a sleeper.
