I'm going to try and make this as short and sweet as possible and post as many pics as possible.

It all started out with a 2002 RS.


First mod I did to it was a complete 2006 STi interior from a wrecked one at a local junk yard.


Next was WRX hood, WRX sideskirts, painted stock wheels (for winter), Koji headlights and 05 STi rear end conversion.


Summer time I added some Rota P45rs, garage door lip and HIDs

I found and traded the Rotas for some JDM V7 goldies from a good friend



Random night shot back then

After the looks were acceptable I was really looking for some power as I was very bored with the N/A engine and it was getting up there in age.
I began to research, buy and stock pile parts (I was still young and noobish though)


Donor motor for the WRX engine swap...

I was still young and never worked too much on my car other than cosmetic and oil changes and suspension so it was time to find a shop and bring everything to them for the surgery




No pictures but I had the heads ported and polished with the new parts being installed.
I forgot I did TGV deletes at this time too (welded shut)

Wrapped Header

Wrapped and sprayed


I ditched the old Defi gauges for a TON of PLX ones (not all pictured)

Custom brackets needed to be made to fit the rails on the intake manifold. Deleted the Cruise Control and AC due to reversing the intake manifold.

Haha thanks. I should have showed the state in which the car was in when I bought it. Came from a lady in Vermont who NEVER took care of it. Dog hair everywhere, found a whole bunch of stuff under the carpet too. Broken peices every where missing plastics, rubber etc...
I've still got a lot to post up and I skipped a ton of stuff too it's hard to look back and upload and describe everything.
