I purchased the car back in January 2015 from a local owner with a basic stage 2 setup. I originally wanted an Evo X but it was out of my budget so one day I browsed on CL for an STI and came to conclusion that they were much more affordable than a newer Evo. After looking at two previous STI's, I settled on this one. The block was newly rebuilt and the clutch was new at the time but shortly after the throw out bearing failed so I had to get it towed to a shop to get it replaced.

Within the last two and half years of ownership, the car has been through a few phases. It started off as a basic stage 2 car on pump gas, went e85 on stock turbo and then last year September 2016 we dropped in a ETS rotated 30R kit.

Fast forward to present day, the car starting making slight ticking noise at idle and we concluded that the car rod bearings failed. Car got rebuilt with a stage 2 tuff block similar to a IAG but by a local engine builder.

Car rebuild complete 8/10/17

More pictures from my engine builder today. Heads, valve covers, and fuel system is done. Just waiting on the UPS guy for my Beatrush engine mounts and the engine will be ready to be dropped in.

It's a 2 bolt up pipe, direct fit with no issues. Beatrush motor mounts came in and the motor is dropped in and running now. Just need to put some break in miles on her now and will be ready for a tune!
