Default New winter... new project.

2 winters ago I did a full 03' wrx conversion in my 96' impreza wagon.

http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show....php?t=1434059

Last winter I swapped a 06' wrx into a 02' TS wagon. (284whp/325 lbs. tq. on kito's dyno)

http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show....php?t=1745176

So Friday I picked up this...





Not sure what I'm going to do with it yet...

Probably one of the best color combos for a two toned forester.

I'm looking to make the Forester my Daily Driver... Originally that was the plan for the 96 GF wagon, but I like the extra space the forester offers (as well as being a bit more of a sleeper). So no lifting.

As for the GF wagon, it may be for sale soon once I get it 100% sorted out (finish door wiring, paint the hood) to pay for this project.

In a perfect world it's getting an Sti swap, and a ton of suspension work w/ meaty wheels/tires.

I might have to settle for a forester xt swap... as money is tight.

I think i'd actually prefer the 4.44 gearing of the xt, but I just hate the 5x100 hub wheel bearing issues.
