here is the cars history.

My Ex wife's Father Pre-ordered this car in in june of 1999 in RBP with gold wheels. the car showed up in August of 1999 in SRP with Silver wheels.

he was very unhappy with the inital appearance of the car, but after a nice wash and wax decided that it was acceptable and kept it.

he drove the car until March of 01 when she bought the car From him, he had ordered the soon to be very popular WRX he ordered this car in WRB.

she drove the RS until July of 03 when she purchased her fathers WRX, he had sold the WRX to her because he Pre ordered an 04 STI in what other color than WRB with Gold wheels.

she sold the RS to a family friend who would use it for daily commuting to and from work.

In the Summer of 05 she traded the same family friend the WRX for the RS, when we got the RS back it was exactly as it left.







As soon as I recieved it I began modding the car. below you will follow the process from a Stock RS to where it is today.

Feel free to ask me any questions and please leave comments!


Here is the RS the Day I got her home.





Here i am installing Blue Rock blocker.






Not shown is the exhaust and suspension upgrades done
I installed a full Cobb Engine back exhaust and a set of AGX's with Eibah's

JDM cluster with DCCD read out (this will be used soon!)


RS and STI at the First ever Des Moines Subaru Meet



Shortly after here, a bunch of astetic mods were installed

P1 lip
Side Skirts painted
V6 Grille
22B vents
Rear Spats
22B replica Wing.

Brakes and some suspension goodies!

Brakes complete!








Sterio also had to be upgraded!



Pictures not shown but also alpine Type S component front and coax rear's were installed.

The family friend that owned the car before me was a 65yr old collage professor and did not have the ability to wax the car regularly that combined with Wisconsin winters made for a small spot of rust over the left rear wheel.
Being that i plan on keeping this car forever we decided to have it fixed. along with this an Aluminum hood was installed along with some fog covers.

here is the car the day it got back from the paint shop.











All 4 of the Subies together!

Boxed up and ready to go! this box is HEAVY!




Parts Sitting in the basement so they wont get damaged!


New gauges!

These gauges were EXTREMELY difficult to find they were discontinued in November of 07 By Defi.
I wanted them because they are the closest match i could find for the stock Cluster and i am being very picky about this swap.
most of the gauges left in the country are in International units. I really wanted Imperial units.
i had to call at least 30 different shops to find them but i got them all! one more is on the way and will be here on wednesday!
they are:
60MM Boost
60MM EGT
60MM oil pressure
52MM Oil Temp

Night pics of the cluster and gauges




As you can see the look very similar at night and during the day, i could not find any other gauge that would match this well!


Looks similar yes?

Its not! this is the R160 rear assembly and the RS gas tank!

RS Cobb NA Exhaust!


R180 in! also installed the STI trailing arms and the Whiteline Adjustable Lateral links.

In the top corner you can see the STI carbon Canister. i transfered all of the STI's emissions equipment
this will make the swap seamless with no check engine lights.



Ebrake handle installed along with the STI rear end components.



Next weekend i plan on tackling the Engine/Transmission Wish me luck!

Well i got antsy yesterday 2/26 so i pulled the motor and front cross member
this weekend ill pull the tranny and install the STI tranny. the engine will have to wait
i am waiting for the brake lines to come from subaru so i can finish the STI ABS install.
