At the minute im just bringing it back upto spec, its been abused by badman chavs so needs some tlc, going to sort rust spots and clean the engine bay up, fix rear wheel bearing and the windscreen needs replacing.

Then its a question of getting it grubby off road or lowering it and turning it JDM...

I don't know much about subarus but my friend has a subaru same colour / style. It was owned by a very old man before him who spent quite a lot on it, mapped by jolly green or someone, and proper solid engine. 320 BHP with proof.

It's a solid car. I hope you un-chavify the car lol and return it to its past glory.

Is this one a 4wd?

Nice to hear!

Sorry for jumping the gun, but do you think you might ave this converted to a turbo in the long run or just sticking with the non turbo engine? :)

And hope it sounds as nice as the ones I hear lol!

I will almost certainly be putting a turbo on it! Providing i have the funds, and yes it sounds brilliant, one of the reasons i was drawn to it in the first place, rumbles nicely ;D
Then you have permission to stay.

Could get it as fast as my mate tish's lol


Can even see me in my spongebob hat cheering him on haha!

Seems a bit strange to buy an N/A Impreza to keep the insurance low then want to Turbo it later. Swapping all the parts will be a lot of work and a fair bit of money. Much easier and realistic to just get a Turbo one when you can afford the insurance and swap over any good bits you have on this. I'd just lower this one a while and give it a good clean and polish

agreed turbos are cheap enouigh to notmess around.

as for n/a mods, the forester 2.0 intake is the best, with abig cold air feed tothe stock box.

then just a rear box and thats about it.

Uuuuuuuuuuuuuunfortunatley i love a challenge, and i love tinkering, so i may have to at least have a pop at it just to challenge myself... however, this is what i have done so far...

I'll try and get this in the right order:

Cleaned her up
reattached hanging bumper
bought spare wheel and jack that were missing
bought facelift grill for newer badge
bought OMP steering wheel and a boss
fitted wheel
bought 05 Hawkeye seats
replaced old seats with Hakweye buckets























NEXT: Refurb alloys, refurb bonnet, sand and repair rust, replace windscreen
