Default Project Impretzel 2 (56k warnin)

So been on this forum for a few years now and i finally decided to post about my 2nd project car the first one got totaled... But it lives again.

So it started as a stock 95 Subaru Impreza L AWD Coupe. It had all the base options manual windows/door locks. This is right before i started really "modifying" it.



So i had already done a swap into a GC chassis before with a 91 Legacy SS drive terrain swap. I also went from FWD to AWD in this swap. I couldn't just let this totaled car go to waste..




I pulled the motor and inspected it closer and turns out the cam pulley had been smashed into the head and cracked it. So it gave me the reason to go bigger I found my self some JDM legacy Heads/intake and thought why not go a little bit bigger on the turbo. I got my self a JDM STI 16g turbo with the 90* bend. I didnt bother building the block up any because it didnt burn any oil and ran flawlessly before and im not at the point for a monster build. I also at the time replaced the oil pump,water pump, timing pulleys,water temp sensor,front/rear main seals. all the hose lines and all the gaskets/o rings on the engine.




Yes that is a ton of RTV. Why i did this is so that it kept the water from getting in because i didn't get the timing covers with the heads so i had to buy some brand new 98 Legacy GT timing covers and they bolt right up but have gaps on that side.



The EJ18 gets pulled:


The Frank motor goes in:

The fun part... the wiring...
What it was:

Cleaned up:


So recently my 5th gear went out in my car... So the trannys already scratched so i thought hmmm why not try this RWD conversion. So i pulled the center diff which was easy enough to do and welded up the spider gears and put it all back together. I pulled the front cv shafts out but left the stubs on either end in the tranny/hub to keep crap out of there. Yes you can hate me for making my car RWD but the tranny was shot and i wanted to try it out so it did and it was worth it.

The guy in this picture was my inspiration, He goes by Natoe on this forum.





So where it sits now:

Drive terrain:
91 Legacy SS block (Subaru's bullet proof motor)
90-94 JDM Legacy DOHC heads/intake
91 Legacy SS ECU
JDM STI 16g turbo
HKS bellmouth 3" down pipe
Ebay 3" exhaust
Ebay FMIC
Walbro 255 fuel pump
Legacy SS injectors
MBC
WRX by pass valve
Group N engine/tranny mounts
Legacy SS tranny (welded center diff)
Legacy SS rear LSD
noltec diff bushings.

Suspension:
Legacy SS brakes front/rear
Whiteline 22-24mm adj RSB
Whiteline 22mm FSB
Whiteline heavy duty front/rear endlinks
Megan Racing coilovers

Interior:
Sparco Evo 2 seat/homemade bracket
2 gauge pillar pod
Autometer Boost gauge

Exterior:
WRX wheels
JDM V1-2 aluminum hood
Bumperless due to fmic issues (soon to be fixed)

The Babe:


So yup that's my baby/project iv put alot of time, blood, sweat and tears into her and im proud of her she runs amazing just runs rich due to the SS ecu which im gonna be fixing really soon. Somethings that are on there way in the mail at the moment and soon to be "modifications"

Soon to come: (next 3 weeks)
Impreza I badge
New smaller intercooler
PP6 piggback system
Zeitronix's wideband o2/lcd screen
Intercooler piping
320mm deep dish steering wheel/hub

Im sure i missed alot of other stuff i have done but i forget, i kinda take it as it comes and see what happens. Well let me know what you guys think or if you have any questions just ask, thanks for reading.

Yah its a fun little car it has no torque though . It was soo worth it to go to RWD since the tranny was shot. It made it alot quicker and handle alot better because now the rear end actually comes around. It does have its down sides though its not as much fun in gravel and i cant launch it. But other then that it was worth it.

If anyone wants to do the RWD i can help yah out its easy enough to do. Just time and a wrench and some one to weld it up.

Just got the wideband,intercooler piping, and wheel/hub today still waiting on the stainless o2 bung, intercooler, and perfect power 6 and then all be ready to start my install.

Got bored so i installed the wheel today. a 320mm wheel is tiny... lets just put it that way glad i have massive power steering lol or else life would suck its not bad its a big change. I do seem to have a little bit more of a response due to the fact i can crank the wheel way faster then before.

So got some stainless steal unequal length headers for a good deal so i just got those installed and the car running again. All get some pictures when i make it home to borrow my sisters camara. Also finally installed the smaller FMIC so now my bumper will be able to fit and be able take it mudding with out taking out my piping and the intercooler lol.

It's back to AWD because i wanna be able to go play in the snow/mud. But will be converting it back to RWD for the summer and so forth.

Just gotta install the piggy back still and the wideband and all be done modifying it till some more cheap parts come around.

Got the smaller intercooler installed and made a costum short ram intake. The bumpers back on and it has the stock hood on for my road trip up to Canada!

So if you see a green coupe with really nasty looking black stripes on the sides of the hood heading up I5 it's me send me a wave.

Well when I installed the sway bars I only had 1 set of 22mm bushings and stock bushings that are only 17mm big. I finally got another set of 22mm bushings for the front. So now its not binding and crazy stiff and I have less understeer. Got around to tuning it with my friend. Not the most amazing tune but it works for now. I haven't dyno'd it but it is reasonably quicker. I took off the stock suspension again and put the coils back on and slammed the car as far as I can with out rolling the fenders.

What I'm thinking about doing next is working on the body and getting it ready for paint. But I'm gonna hold off till June to start that. All get some more pictures up in the next few days. Also if anyone is going to the auto-x in Eugene on the 24th/25th all be there. Haven't really been doing much to it due to the lack of money. Also have been working more on my brat recently. Wanna get that ready for some road trips this summer

I ended up getting a wagon and swapping everything over to it. I installed some jdm wagon tails/wrx hatch. The car is multi-colored as of right now because I don't have the funds to paint it just yet also because the hood and new black fender on the passenger side are ruined thanks to a lovely deer and need to be replaced first.




I have a roof rack from a 98 obs that I need to install on it and that is about it besides keeping it running.
