Car Description:
My STI is a full bolt on build done by myself over the span of a week in my garage. When I bought this car I was originally going to make it just a nice weekend warrior to take on roadtrips and to just enjoy on the road. Unfortunately exactly one month after purchase I blew up my very first 6 speed transmission. How you may ask is a great question. Subaru techs from 3 different dealerships are still scratching their heads. The car was put on jackstands and the car sat for months. One day I doing some small maintenance on the motor and decided what the hell, I will pull the motor and clean up the engine bay. The car was never the same since. After the motor was pulled I decided I wanted to tuck as much as possible to make my engine more accessible and easy to work on. I started with wire tucking the entire engine harness, next was the body harness and fusebox along with any miscellaneous wires. When I was happy with the accessibility of the motor I started to put some power mods into the build. After 8 months of waiting I was able to find a replacement 6 speed transmission. I put the motor and transmission into the car, and had everything modified to work in 3 days. I have daily driven the car ever since because of how much fun it is to drive. It kicks butt in thr summer and it murders in the winter. This car has so many stories, to many to include on this form.
