Very cool looking ride man. Congrats! I'd dig into the history on that car a little more. It seems odd that the owner upgraded the intercooler but nothing else related to it. I'm curious about the tune or what else may have been done that you just don't know about.

That car is super sexy. It almost makes $8 a gallon look worthwhile.

original owner gave the original intercooler too, he said there was a small leak from it so he just happened to come across the sti one for good money, iv no idea of tune on it its quick but im used to 1600 toyotas so anything is quick haha.....

Seeing how the entire country of Ireland is slightly larger than West Virginia, it's all relative.

Hard to take long road trips.

The U.S. is approximately 2.5x the size of Western Europe.

USA USA!!!

I just moved back from Italy and it was about the same cost for fuel. You get used to it plus public transit makes it a lot easier as well.

Wagon looks good man. I'd definitely put an original airbox on there. It will make it run much smoother.
