I just picked up my 2005 GT Wagon Manual a few weeks back and I am having way more fun and enjoyment out of it then my 2011 WRX?!? Odd I know but when you really get down to it the older GT's are like WRX's with bigger bodies.
I run the hell outta my GT and it just goes strong. 72,000 on the clock and not an issue. I am putting a catless UP on it and tuning it as we speak. Gotta get rid of that crap OEM map like my WRX. And the UP will prevent a grenade.
I personally am very leery of the banjo oil filters and am removing those soon I hope.
And I got it for $11,500.
I could not be happier.
