Default I got my baby back!!!!



I just finished up my headgasket repair and clutch replacement and its running like a champ!! I was a little worried the first time I turned the key but she started up like a champ! It took a while due to money and other issues but man, I am so happy to have my car back. its weird to drive a N/A car again after driving my GF's wrx for the last month.. but i like it, just makes me want to do a turbo swap.

That's great to hear man, I also had to deal with not having my car for an extended period of time when I had the head gasket and heater core replaced last winter. Do you have any serious plans about turbo-ing the beast?

That's a nice picture of your OB, almost makes me want to put my bull-bar bumper back on. How much lower is your car from stock and what size tires are those?

stock 205/55/16's on stock wrx wheels with stock wrx wagon struts and tein s-tech springs. so i'm guessing its close to a 3" drop.. I have suspension plans though..
