    Are you seriously a fucking retard? All wrx's and sti's are imprezas.......and your car might as well be an impreza wrx sti.

    i bought it for 10k about 2 years ago, its a 2001. They handle very nicely with the right suspension mods and awd is always fun.. but the power from a jdm motor or usdm sti or wrx is the BEST feeling evar. The current wrx's and sti's are too big for my tastes. Coupe ftw!

    edit: needs an v5 STi wing imo

    sick "impreza", how much did the engine swap cost (roughly) without labour, if you payed for it?

    without labor the engine is around 5-6k start throwing all the other parts at it and it easily gets to 8k. Do as much work yourself as you can and leave the wiring to someone who can really do it haha.

    I have a 2000 2.5RS with an AVO turbo kit on it. Needs some dyno tuning, but boost on the lighter GC body FTW! Nice STi swap, wish I could afford that. Gotmy turbo kit for $3300, and engine had less than 60k on it, so I didn't want to swap out a perfectly good engine. Pic of my car in my sig. I've added a little to it since that pic, like mesh fog covers, tinted the front blinkers, and an RB5 wing on the back along with the turbo kit.
