Default MY96 STi V7 Wagon Weight

Last Friday we took the time to go ahead and weigh two of the GF swaps we have at the shop. We did this with a corner balancing system so the weights should be pretty accurate. I left my corner measurements at the shop, but it was surprisingly well-balanced left to right and front to back considering I added a lot of weight all around but haven't removed anything but that of the stock steel hood.

I listed some of the key weight items below for both of the cars.

My car:
1996 Impreza L Wagon
Power doors/mirrors
Manual windows
STi V7 longblock
ScoobySport turboback/factory cat pipe
WRX brakes
WRX Transmission/rear diff
Exedy flywheel/stock clutch
RS axles
Stock suspension
Aluminum hood
A/C intact
No cruise
17x7 OZ SuperTourismos/215 Yokohama AVS Sport
3/4 tank of gas

2885 lbs alone
3060 lbs with me in it

Friends car:
1993 Impreza L Wagon
Power doors/mirrors/windows
EJ257 shortblock
EJ20G Heads and turbo parts
APS turboback
APS front mount
WRX brakes
Forester XT transmission/rear diff
Exedy flywheel/ACT clutch
Forester XT axles
Tein RE suspension
Aluminum hood
A/C removed
No cruise
17x7.5 Volk CE28/225 Falken Azenis
1/4 tank of gas
60lb toolbox
Lightweight bumper beams

2820 lbs alone
3030 lbs with him in it

Both cars were surprisingly close in weight. Some items give and take, but I was expecting the cars to vary drastically due to the year differences (I'd heard something to the tune of 2500lbs on some of the older coupes). Also, I had a ballpark figure of 2900lbs with the swap, but that is about 100lbs over the mark once you put on the JDM lightweight parts. By the end of summer I will have a 6MT, R180, STi Brembos and 5x114.3 hubs. At that point, I'll reweigh and see how heavy it is with all the new-age parts in.

Having access to quite a few various Subarus, I can say that the 300 lbs that are missing is very noticeable.

Interesting. My car was weighed on a truck scale with the driver (my mechanic) and it was 3260# with him in it. All I have is the complete version 7 motor, stock tranny and fiberglass hood. I need to ditch something.... how much does the cruise control weigh?

Cruise weighs less than 2 lbs. Not a very good trade off in a daily driver. Start thinking drastic like bumper beams, seats, wheels, brake rotors, battery, a/c. Some bigger weight, but more $$ or lost convenience.

oh wow, hopefully my 93 L wagon can weight in about that... 300 lbs makes a world a difference I bet.

Lots of V7 wagons popin up.

I need to get mine weighed(94 w/ manual everything). Sounds good though, mines stripped(no seats, no deadening and interior from the front seats back), llghtweight beams, NO A/C or cruise and its daily driven. W/ 6mt, So I imagine I come in about where you guys are.

Full corner weights for the MY96 STi V7 Wagon:
LF 835, RF 853
LR 615, RR 575

with me
LF 900, RF 878
LR 680, RR 597

I also forgot to mention that my car has Sparco Roadster seats (couple lbs weight savings each) and the MY93 has STi V6 seats.

My car doesn't have cruise because it didn't come with cruise. I probably would have updated it to the WRX cruise system if the car had cruise to begin with. Even so, I had cruise in my RS and my WRX and I never used it.
