Gr4v3r's Legacy STI
 
I was waiting to show my new car until I fixed everything I wanted but I can't wait any longer. A month ago I bought my dream car, a 3rd Gen Legacy with an STI swap. The swap was done at ECS with a full engine and drive train and I am the second owner (I take no credit for the love that went into creating this car but I intend to show it tons more).

After buying the car I threw on my roof rack, plastidipped the winter wheels black (he had a bright blue), and cleaned up the headlights. This is how the car sits today.

Congrats on purchase! Thats pretty BA. Super sleeper. Any dyno charts or an idea of the power range?

Thanks! He told me around 250 WHP since he lowered the boost for a longer commute but no charts. I will be getting a protune ASAP though.

Money and dream car :P My first car was a 3rd gen legacy and I always said when I was older and had the money I would get an STI swapped 3rd gen. Turns out I got lucky and found it.

The 4th gen was amazing but my fiance got a new jetta which is our daily driver so I felt something a little more "Projecty" was possible.

laff79 11-04-2012 04:27 PM

shut up, cocstain, i was talking to OP. And yes, I read his original post, I just wanted some more back story.

op: your money, your car. Enjoy it. It doesn't look bad for a 3rd gen.

octain11 11-04-2012 04:30 PM

now now taffy....

i think it looks awesome for a 3rd gen, not many swaps around the 3rd gen community

Ya different stokes for different folks. I remember when they released the 4th gen and I liked the way my car looked so much more but was jealous of the turbo. On the other friend my one friend would always tell me how much better the new 4th gen looked compared top my car :P

Congrats on the purchase! What I spent over a year doing you got for no work and way less money, you are smart. :lol:

I don't get why he removed the RSK front bumper, but I think it looks sick on there.

Is ABS still non-functional I assume?
