For those of you who have never talked to me (which would be most of you on here) my name is Dave. The project that I am setting out on is the end result of several years worth of planning, successes, failures, and a series of both unfortunate and incredibly beneficial accidents.

The plan:
Built an Open Class 1995 Subaru Impreza L for stage rally, road rally, and rallycross.

The history:
I first became interested in rally back in 2000. While in Australia I got into a conversation about this strange automotive sport which involved people driving at breakneck speeds on various surfaces. At the time I had a mental image of big SUVs lumbering through mud and over rocks so imagine my surprise when it was explained to me that the "SUVs" were in fact cars! Over the next few years I maintained only minimal interest in the sport due to it not being well-known in the states and my general lack of automotive knowledge. To save on time here I can summarize that I owned several subarus which include an SVX, a 2.5RS, a WRX, and the Impreza that is now sitting in my garage waiting to start its build.


The car:
This particular 95 Impreza L was acquired from a guy in Philadelphia. In it's previous life it was a turbocharged 1.8L drag car. It was a bit rough around the edges but almost entirely rust free and exactly what I needed so I could start this.

Just a bit of explanation:
The motor is coming out of a 2002 WRX. It's still the EJ205 but with a few party pieces under the skin including forged pistons and rods. See the spec sheet for more info. The car has sat like this for several months now as I allocated the resources necessary to make it happen. The slated completion date for this build is mid February to early March. So without further adieu its time to start! I hope you enjoy seeing it as it grows.

Just a few shots of some of the prep-work for the build:

It begins. Tear-down of the donor WRX:

I could get them off. They attach with adhesive though so you'd have to figure out how to get them to stick on

They're on the 05 RS currently. I'll consider it though. I seem to recall you looking for P7s... what.. a year or two ago. Did you not find any or are you just trying to get some extras? I might be willing to sell the Prodrive OZ P WRC1 wheels that I put on the WRX while it sat (pictured in two of the pictures). Those are the tires that came with the Prodrive P1

Yours wouldn't have gone this route. That would have been used on tarmac only. I was a little unhappy earlier about that but it all turned out ok.

No worries, mate. It just allowed me to focus on this rally build instead of splitting my attention.

Firewall pan removed


Shell delivered




Stripped


Check out these sweet new wheels. I mounted them in closer to the center for super scientific purposes. You can call me the drift king. I can go totally sideways with these babies.



Big props, again, go out to Andrew Havas. The car is currently getting tossed into an oven. It will serve up to a family of six. Or maybe it's actually going to just get media blasted when it's done. I duno. Fresh roast GC is always so tasty.
