Default Boston's 02 SRP STi aka "Rita"

My SRP bugeye named Rita
I'll continually post up future updates to car on here, along with dyno plots, video, etc..


Before I bought the SRP I previously owned an 03 PSM wrx and ended up putting on just about every bolt-on possible and loved every bit of driving it on the Tail of the Dragon or any of the amazing mountain roads that were in the area, minus the understeer... The only thing about the wrx platform is that it always left me wanting for more.. More as in suspension, transmission, engine, etc.. all of which truly makes the STi a blast to drive. After studying the market and hunting for a less expensive STi for half a year, I realized the best bang for my buck at the end of the day would be to buy a bugeye with the STi engine/trans already swapped then I could proceed to modify and mold it to my liking. Then began the hunt for the right car... After a year of searching/hunting, working long weeks and going to school full time I ended up finding this Sedona Red Pearl wrx on the Nasioc classifieds, I never thought I would own a red car but SRP changed my mind real quick. Within the first days of it being posted I drove down to GA to take a look at it and instantly put a deposit down for the previous owner to hold it for me, it was perfect.. exactly what I had been hunting for for so long.. It even came with the original window sticker and a folder full of receipts like a private party purchase should include lol. The next day or so I received an email from the owner telling me that a man from TN had contacted him and told him to pass a message on to me. He said he would pay me $400 not to buy the car! Now at that point I knew I had the right Subaru in my sights and was about to be in my possession.. The STi swap that was performed on the car was the most complete, clean swap that I have ever laid my eyes on. Even the fuel tank/rear glass/all suspension/hubs/all wiring had been swapped over from an 05 STi. All Pro Subaru in Alpharetta, GA were the ones to perform the swap and from what I was told by the gentleman I purchased the bugeye from, the car was owned by the master tech who did the swap.



This is how she looked when I brought her back home to the mountains.





and shortly after I had to start finding the right parts...
bye bye $$$$




Bugeyes are one of my all time favorite cars.. since they first came to the states I have always wanted one.. even over a hawkeye or blobeye. When I owned my PSM I stumbled upon all the JDM goodies that never came to dealers stateside. I instantly started to search the classifieds for parts when I picked up Rita.








Now fast forward 2.5 years and this is how she looks














A big shout outs go to Defined Performance, my buddy Jacob and all my friends that helped me along the way. Jordan at Defined has always hooked me up on all the parts I ever needed for my cars. Check him out on Facebook or at www.definedusa.com







Current up to date Mod list, everything in red are my additions to the car.

Last weekend went home for some runs out on the parkway and surrounding back roads.
The new setup did amazingly well.










Randomly met this guy in his 240 off an overlook. Sweet swap and pure drift car.. Makes me want another rwd toy...

I have a question,what splitter did you use on your bug for your TMIC and the JDM hood scoop? I'm putting process west one on my car but I have the 2.0l engine. I have the JDM hood scoop on mine, and I was wondering if the splitter that came with it was sufficient?

You're going to have to modify the jdm splitter, none of the process west splitters will fit properly with the jdm bugeye scoop and tmic. I think the stock splitter will be somewhat sufficient but doesn't fit/look the best.

This car looks good but I really love the 2nd photo posted in your thread. The gold 08's on it are perfection in my opinion.

The car has STi engine/dash wiring harnesses. I had to cut and solder different plugs that came with the fogs to make them work.

I've been going to Helen GA the past couple years for SoWo and its a damn shame the way children were acting this year... Ended up having a great time with friends I haven't seen in a year.
It was a much needed break from work to just relax and enjoy the amazing weather and scenery.
