Default My 2000 GC8 RHD V6 type-RA V-Limited Type WRC conversion!

I did this a couple years ago from scratch and sold the car end of 2007. Just came across all my pictures so i thought I would share.

Car started out as a stock 2000 2.5rs

Complete JDM donor car: V6 type-RA V-Limited Type WRC #505/2000

I did all the work myself along with my fabricator and a couple friends who helped me along the way!

enjoy.....

I believe the new owner may be on this forum. But i am not sure their screen name.

I have actually tried getting a hold of the new owner to see how the car is and what kind of dyno numbers it put down, but never received an email back.

I had sold the car on RS25.com

Great community. I sold my version 7 swapped GC there two years ago, and my 04 STi last year and still keep in touch with the new owners through RS25. Not only are they both loving and taking care of the cars, but they were actually cousins haha.

Thanks for posting the info even though you don't have the car anymore, I'm sure someone will find the "step-by-step" useful.

I had this RHD GC8 i built, Evo IX MR, K20 swapped civic, 2500HD diesel truck, 1997 Skyline R33 GTR Vspec.

My shop was getting full of my own cars and my house was full of cars. So I sold the GC8 and the Evo. I miss the GC8, car was just INSANE. Just looked soo mean and sounded awesome. I am curious about who has the car and what its been like.

I found my old for sale add here on NASIOC. Buyer's screen name was " D Watts"

I am picking up a 2005 STi this Tuesday. so we will see how this one turns out

@AMS MIKE : I know this has been discussed a butt load of times, but I thought I'd ask a guy who.obviously worked on this car, I'm just curious to know if you noticed if the heads on this 2000 WRC model were Big Port Heads, and if the Cams were different than the regular ver6 STi. I'm doing this swap regardless, but Its just bugging the hell outta me to know. I've heard so many different people say different things. And I've heard very respectable guys say that they will never let their Ver6 WRC Heads go, so that right there just made me super curious. Any info would be awesome. Thanx bro.
