Man, I had high hopes for that kit.

Gl with the buildup. Bodywork is def not something you can rush.

It is a good kit, fiberglass is just fiberglass, it takes a lot of effort to make "right" and this is my DD. I may just park the car and do it up right if I can find a good running 1st gen legacy or maybe even a Loyale? But how long do you think it will take before I get the bug to modify that?

245 on 18x8 rubbed eh? What offset were they? That's kind of disappointing. Considering I fit my rather tall sidewall 275/40-17 V710s with "massaged" stock fenders. But they are +42 offset, with 3mm spacers in the rear for more strut clearance.



Wonder if they'd fit, seems like there would be room. I want to come see Tim Bailey soon and get a retune/race gas tune - should bring up the DPTs and see the clearance on teh widebody wagon.

Lovin the build so far. I just picked up a red 99 Impreza L wagon so I was stoked to see this build. I just read through this thread and read through your last few updates on the last few issues of Subiesport. Will there be another update in the next issue of Subiesport?

Well looks like you have gone through a few different engine setups. I like your choice with the EJ22T. I like my EJ22 but I think I will eventually go with a 2.5L NA build with my 2.2L heads. Good luck on your future work with the car and look forward to seeing more.

Its good to see more ink on the GC/GF chassis. These cars are the true Legos of the subie world and with a large supply of JDM parts out there due to the span of years they were built they are the perfect project cars. I sold my 00 RS to pick up a 93 Wagon just so I could JDM swap it and be semi legal.

Love the project man.

So when it sells are you going to be keeping the magazine updated as the new owner finishes it?

Sorry guys the wagon is GONE. I sold it. Since I am no longer Editor in Chief at Subieport I decided to scratch an itch I have had for a while and get back into Hondas. I bought a 1990 Si Hatch that I will be doing a few things to. You might have seen Andy Bornhop's EF hatch on one of the last cover's of Sport Compact Car. I had a chance to see that car in person and it lit a fire.

Call me a traitor or whatever, but it was just something I had to do. I hadn't done much to the car in the past year and it was either time to finish it or move on, so I moved on. The last installment of the project will be out with the next issue.

Ahhh sad! Good luck with the Honda though. I have soon some pretty nice tastefull Hondas in my day and don't have anything against them as long as you keep them tastefull.

When will the next issue be out? Looking forword to seeing the last installment of Dreadknot

Not sure I'd call that a true widebody, looks more like a wagon with fender flares(which is what it is).

So did the engine ever get fixed? When you sold it to the guy what was wrong with it? I'm looking at buying it. Is the busted ej22t still in it?

I pretty much gave up on this thing so I sold it. It had a running EJ22T in it when I sold it. Not sure why he thinks it's busted now, unless he broke it, which is entirely possible. Dude pretty much had no idea about... anything. Good luck with all that. I sold lots of good parts with it. I will not be answering any more questions about it since, it's not mine.

Stuff is in the works for a motor for the L, but you have to read the next issue to see what we have done so far.
If you could find an old mail delivery legacy wagon those are rhd perfect for a twin turbo setup.
