Default AK_GT's 2005 Legacy GT LTD Wagon Build

Following suit with a lot of the other AKIC guys, I figured I'd start a build thread for my car.

Bought the car last September down in Anchorage, bone stock minus a gutted up pipe, some aftermarket (cheap) wheels, and a couple of aestetic bits:



About 2k miles after getting it (roughly 51k on the odo) I let my girlfriend drive the car while hers was in the shop. She was new to driving a manual, and roasted the clutch. Knew it was coming, just hoping it wouldn't have been that early!

Stage 3 Competition Clutch:


While the car was down, I figured I'd throw some gauges in it too to monitor the boost and Oil Pressure:




No pics of this, but I felt the need for some more power, so I bought a shorty FLOW downpipe, and bought a used Accessport V1 and went stage 2.

Recent Future plans are to upgrade front and rear sway's, Swift wagon drop springs, koni yellow struts, new projector retro with bi-xenons.

Overall, I would like this car to see 350 whp, and still be relatively reliable. That should make me happy... for a while

Nice gauge mounting. Very stealthy.

Wheels are Riax Monza, 17x7. Wrapped with BFG G Force KDW's. Not a bad grippy summer setup, but I want to step up to 18x8 or 8.5s.

Nice gauge mounting, did you DIY or go with the Cosapolis (SP?) Pod? (I went latter for cubby + Gauge)

BTW, nice wagon. I've seen it a few times down here and know the old owner, well taken care of IIRC.

It's a second hand Cosopolis pod that I picked up over on LGT.com, Most of my "DIY" time has been spent on my dodge pod :

No one makes a molded one piece for the first generation Cummins rigs, so I'm going to make a mold for them I think. Off topic lol.

The previous owner ("Speter") was a great guy and super easy to deal with when I bought the car. I was trying to work a deal to sell the LGT that Kiwi previously owned, so I could buy the wagon, and the deal fell through but I bought the wagon anyways. Now bhinak has my old car. I have ALL the receipts for anything the original owner did with the car.
