Awesome job, man. Did you have any help or was it all self wrenched and body work/paint?

Can't wait to see her with the front lip and lowered just a little bit. No need to have it slammed (especially by the look of where you live, wouldn't be to good for the needed ground clearance).

This guy with some serious Cams in it, maybe something like the Tomioka Twinscroll kit in it... and the L'aunsport WRC tribute exhaust would be WICKED!!
Thanks, Yea the roads in Mass arent the best but should be getting a good drop in the spring. Perks of owning my own shop
Peace-

I had help with the body work since I'm NOT a body guy. I also had a few friends pitch in here and there

Wow great work! Iv been working on mine for a year now and im almost done, is your ABS System running? i have a merged harness and it dosnt have abs but i think i may just do a full 04 sti harness so it will work, and do the dash swap, how hard was yours? And How much Power did you make?

And how the hell did you get your dash so close, theres almost no gap! Iv only seen it that close on the east coast swapers cars.
Iv also built my motor but ran out of money so i when with a Dom 3 xtr, should be good on e85 untell i can run a rotated GTX 3076! But love the build! makes me mad mine isnt done yet, but thats mostly because im a college student, school comes first .

any plans on a jdm sti wing? Grill?

ABS works, full STi harness is the way to go. The interior was the most time consuming part of the whole swap. It just got the break-in tune on it so no numbers yet. Good luck with your build should be a beast!!

I would love ver 6 grill and rb5 wing and jdm rear bumper.... if I stumbled across them at the right price I would pick them up!!
