^^^I figured as much. Yet this is what he wrote on the skier website....

"Replaced with '05 Subaru Legacy GT wagon. Crazy turbo (STI engine), reasonable reliability, comfortable as the Volvo, and kick-ass to drive"

Doesn't the STI have dual AVCS?

I believe 255 and 257 have same block and slightly different heads, but I'm not 100% sure, so a search or a more knowledgeable member can correct that, but just thought I'd throw my possible misinformation out there to spark more discussion. ;)

Fyi ... sti swap can sort of refer to anything and lots of people run sti brakes and then put an sti sticker on the car. Could mean anything from just the sticker all the way up to the motor and all sti bits.

The question you are looking for is that, no it is not factory Subaru. It's customization.
