Cool bro. Won't it be a bit of a drive from south central PA though? I'm sure there is something a little closer, but of course you're always welcome at out meet. Bring friends if you want. The more the merrier lol. Doesn't matter if it's subaru or not.

Yeah that's what I'm trying to do. But of course I would like to buy the parts about a month or so before I install them so I can go over them multiple times and ensure that I'm not missing ANYTHING. As far as internal upgrades on the blocks there are so many different options out there and I'm not too picky. I just want something that's going to last a while, has a little over 300whp. And rides fairly comfortably. I think that engine tranny set up (the built longblock with the PPG geared 5MT), a tune, and some new wheels would do though. The rest can come later. Like a bigger turbo, brembo's, etc.

SOMEHOW I got my wife to agree to let me have some free rein on what I put into it cause it'll be cheaper than spending 20K on a new-used car, as long as I'm keeping it cheap. As in less than 13K lol. ****, I'll primer the thing to save money if it can have a good combo like that lol.
