It's an 2002 WRX, 32K miles(long story)
EG33 that I got out of a car w 60k on the odo
6speed with RA ratios (3100rpm @65mph! ack)
Tilton twin disc w light flywheel
MS3x/factory ej20 ECM integrated emissions and all (one last piece and its NYS inspection time)
R180, pink sti arms blah blah.
D2 coilovers that finally ride acceptable with the "big block" under the hood.

and although I havent gotten around to the A/c compressor bracket Im keeping my ac. Im bald. Im fat, I sweat man. lol

Ive got about 400 miles on the combo now, Im pretty much happy with the NA torque and fun factor. Lets not overlook the H6 howl either.

Overall the project's difficulty lies in the electronics side of things, otherwise most of it just bolts together. start to finish waiting at the DMV for plates=7 days
My question to you is how did you pass the obd2 check or do you even have it where you are? I know i can pass inspection but i cant think of way to pass the scanner other than keeping the oem ecu in and feeding it some signals from a standalone. Then set the stocker in pass mode and erase all of the dtc codes. Any insight?
