Default 1998 V5 STI Type R

After a forray into BmW's and an E46 m3, I have finaly come back to the burbble and picked this up last week,

1998 V5 STI Type R, dont think you guys can get them over there can you? There a Japanese only light weight (1190kg), short ratio 2 door version.





its pretty much standard bar a rather nice set of 330mm AP 4 pot brakes on the front end



prob wont stay that standard for long tbh, currently up at the garage having some TLC but after that initial plan will be to decat, wing mounted induction kit and a custom map.

Yeah im from england, its actualy a japanese only model but we can import them here.

WRX decals are standard, also got one on each rear quarter, well it should do, one side is missing. guessing being 16 years old it had some paint and they never put it back.

22b was based on the type r shell i believe

Both Rocker covers
Rear crank seal
Clutch (was down to the bolts but drove fine so figure that one out :S)
steering column bearing
drivers side window
steering wheel was offset
new tyres all round
cambelt, tensioner and pulleys
oil change
gearbox oil
driver side window screeching when you put it down (come off the runners)
binding brakes
underseal (never been done but not a spot of rust on it)
