Celebrate & Party we shall !!!

99 Subaru Impresa STi EG33.RS ? EZ30R.RS ? EZ36R.RS? one of these H6 will be put in my daily driver !

my impreza has been sitting for some time now and it was time to build my self something simple for a daily driver that can drive with out a problem !

with the help of my friend Nam @ NVauto we will build something simple and fun to drive that is smooth pulling Hwy cruiser for long distance trips.

we start with this simple bone stock Un-molested 1999 subaru impreza 2.5rs auto.





first thing on order ! pass the emission testing to get the car on the road. with the guidance help from Nam we found a 5mt 99 for its wiring harness to get the car running like it came out the show room floor !..

It wasn't looking to good but Nam noticed that my car was having a misfire issue ! so he got in there and found that the timing belt jumped 2 teeth !!.... after all most scrapping the project he aligned the motor back to stock and I was back on the road ready for daily action !...





after all that hard work the emission was passed to perfection like a normal stock car from 1999 !!







it was time to start pulling things i got laying around at my shop, once I start digging around at home, I found my JDM 5x100 STi suspension. the top hats are STi Group N F&R, the springs I had purchased these about 2 year's ago new, which are JDM STi GC8 GYMKHANA springs.. k5.1 F k4.9 R.



some more parts, main part is the new style rear subframe which has solid bushings from the factory



also the new style aluminium arms, front and rear. these in a old style subaru make it longer wider track light weight and lots of camber



and whiteline everything motorsports set up, lots of grease and pressing in bushings front to back and caster top mounts for the STi struts.

also got 2006 backing plates for my subaru 4pot 2pot which are getting powder coated, and full rebuild kit




after digging around the house it was time to start the madness at NVauto ! we gutted the under side for all the new exciting toys will should make my car turn laps faster then a Mighty Mouse Miata !!

white line everything work in progress



put my 22B STi hubs to good use
