1999 GC8 R-STI

Default 1999 Subaru R-STI Build Thread. Dun dun dun!

Just picked up my new project car a few weeks back. Thought i would share. Its my first Subaru- i am coming from the VW scene, building and racing them as a hobbie. Thought i would give Subaru a try! I thought it would be a great chance to learn information on a new platform.

I will be doing some minor DIY additions to this thread. They will include, but are not limited to the following:

-DIY FMIC + Piping
-DIY downpipe (weld, measure and install)
-DIY Caliper Rebuild
-DIY Brake Rotor Install
-DIY Brake Pad Install
-DIY Roll Cage
-DIY Suspension Tune
-DIY ECU Removal/Install

Yes some have been done, yes some are simple. Thought it would benefit some. Comments welcome.
