...6 months, 1.5x my original budget, my wife threatening all sorts of physical pain... pretty average project car.
Ok the important stuff. Built ej257 w/forged pistons. Everything brand new except for the headers, exhaust manifold, wiring harness, ecu, which came from a 02 WRX. TMIC and vf39 sourced used from nasioc. Full 3 inch catless exhaust, 07 WRX transmission.
Open source road tune. Probably puts down around 290 HP at the wheels.
I love the orginal OB logo. Hard to find as decals anymore.
Enkei EV5s in Dunlop SP Sport Signatures. 225/50/17 I had these tires on my WRX and loved them, so I had to get a new set for summer. The EV5s are not nearly as nice as my RPF1s, but I'll live.
They wouldn't fit anyway.
Of course, KYB GR2s and Kings.
