Default Turbo LsX / LS1 V8 ENGINE ( 8 pistons) Subaru WRX Bugeye Build

I've always loved the Wrx bugeye, but not the power and drive train in the cars. Break too often and way to expensive in my opinion. I ran across Civette's build back almost 3 yrs ago and wanted to do a ls swapped wrx ever since. In 2009 I did try to purchase a wrx roller, but deal fell through and ended up with a 93 rx7 Fd. Did a nice little swap in it but never really enjoyed the car due to it being only a 2 seater / very small and yet again a very expensive to car to replace parts on. After draining my wallet on it, I sold it within 6 months. Ever since I have been looking for a wrx to do the build I want. About a month ago I ran across a pretty clean wrx , nice sti swap, had legit documents to prove what was done to the car ( shop built the entire car for the most par) so i knew it was solid. Also would be easy to regain most of my money invested in the car. I drove 5 hrs to go buy the car, on the way home sure enough I had a power steering pump start leaking and made a nice mess in the engine bay.... About a week later finally got a new pump in and fixed the leak. Finally got to drive the car and almost decided not to change anything on the car. then it happened the rear diff started clicking, ate the spider gears up. Well that made my mind up and the next day i had the engine swap out.... then it snow balls from there....

Purchased the car a little over a month ago.
