That would be WAY too easy, and you know it.

Ask him why it wouldn't fit. Its the same chassis.

question, why not buy an sti? It would be cheaper in the long run. It will cost you alot more than what an STi costs brand new, for not quite the same performance.

i have no idea what you guys are talking about?!

theres no way it would ever fit, i mean, subaru would have had to keep its subframes, mounts, chassis basically the same design for over a decade!




edit, heres a good read, tell your dad to read this thread:

Get an '04 STI and swap the rear spoiler to a WRX style.
Then remove the STi badge.
There you go, an Sti with WRX look.
It would be easier this way.
