Question

I have only seen one black RS in town in the last 12 months and it was a MY98 with the gold 5 spoke rims.

I did see a black one over a year ago that I think was a MY99 with the V5 bumper on it. Only saw it once on the Sherwood Park freeway taking the 76 Ave turnoff very quickly and haven't seen it since.

Other than that, the only turbo's in Alberta that I've heard of are Jack's Legacy and another RS owner in Calgary (who apparently sold it to someone). Any of you Calgary guys know of other turbo RS's around?

There are rumors of a Black 98RS in edmonton that has a Minnam Stage II turbo in it. The guy from EZ Motorsports (Kevin Ngai) said he was the one who installed it. I talked to him over the summer when i first got my RS. also Gerard has started talking about it recently.

I have yet to see it but it's the one w/ the 5 spoke gold rims. I need to see it to believe it. I think some Vietnamese guy drives it.

Ok, well other than my Turbo'd GT, there are 2 more '99RS in Rally Blue that are turbo'd here in cow-town.... one is a total sleeper, the other has an Apex-i body kit on it.

The sleeper is currently dormant (swapping an STi spec EJ20T (bored to 2.2L) into it's engine bay after an accidental incidient involving too much boost and cheap gas. Needless to say that EJ25 is now coming out!

Well, the Black RS with gold rims that I've seen was definately being driven by a caucasian guy. I've never seen any asian guy in a Black RS...yet.

If he's around though, we have to get him into our little group and let him take us for spins in his car

I have seen two RS in GMCC city campus underground parking.

One is black with V5 front bumper and spats with Alberta license plate and one is Rally Blue with full 22B kit with one red momo driver seat with Saskatchevan license plate.

And both are lowered and with large exhaust and driven by Asian.

Also from the members page, I see that there is a Cobb's tuned Impreza in Edmonton.

Anyone seen that before?

V6: the Rally blue RS is not turbo, and his body kit is a Varis Extreme bumper. I think his skirts and rear bumper is Apex-i or something like that.

Maybe it's the black one that might be turbo. I've never seen a black one w/ V5 bumper. Try to get a hold of that guy, leave a not on his windshield or something.

As for the Cobb tuned impreza, i noticed it too, but i hvae no clue who it is, and i've never seen it before....i don't think.

Jack, don't forget theres more.

Morgan's old 98 RS has a Minnam Stage I. Not sure who owns this car now.

And Mikes 99, with his monster of a turbo setup.

And what about that white one you were talking about? The one with the JC sports turbo kit you installed on it. Or is that the one with the blown EJ25?

Do you have any photos of your GT's setup? Im still curious to see it!

Tulit - Morgan's '98 is white right? if it is, that's in Vancouver.

I was referring to Mike's 99 (he has the Apex-i body kit)

The one w/ the JC Sports was a Rally Blue '99RS. That has the blown EJ25... happened after using cheap fuel and boost of 14-15lbs, melted the piston closest to the driver, but the car was still able to move! There was almost no compression in that cylinder.

As for pics of my GT's set-up, that'll be avavilible pretty soon... re-working a few design things (aesthetics)... Should be all ready (hopefully) by the huge RPM Racing show.

Are any of you guys here in Calgary going to the World Of Wheels? I was orginally going to have my '98 Legacy L on display there, but a few parts arrived late and wasn't able to submit the application soon enough.

schlong8,
I always see the black one in GMCC at night time (i.e. 6pm-9pm) in the underground parking lot. You can have a look at that time.

Also I have heard rumour that there is a young asian female always drive a 4dr silver sedan with lots of dolls in the car but it is totally stock look.

I see the silver 4door w/ the female asian driver all the time on campus. She parks in TIMMS parking lot, same as me. And yes, there are A LOT of dolls on and around the dash. It is stock as far as i know, no exhaust, extra gauges etc. Just a whole crap load of dolls.

I go to Grant on thursday to play volleyball sometimes. Do i need to pay to go into underground parking? I jsut want to cruise around looking for black RS.

Yes, you need to pay for parking for underground parking.

Usually after 5:30pm it only cost $3 until close.

Because I have course in GMCC, that's why I always see that black and blue impreza in the underground.

You can park outside but just walk down the stairs of the LRC then you can check it out usually after 5:30pm
