Enter the 1998 Subaru Impreza 2.5RS, but that can be found by clicking the picture below.
I swapped the wheels, shift knob, seats from the RS, found some JDM BH tails/grill/emblems, and quieted down the Legacy with a WRX muffler
After using the Impreza all summer it eventually ran into some problems so my Legacy became my main car again. Sadly the engine was getting tired after 180k and being beat on so she quick. Another engine later and she was good as new.
Spring rolled around and my buddy ended up getting a 2000 L wagon so we had to go for a cruise with some pictures. I stole the wheels off my Impreza because I'd rather keep them on the road and they almost look better on the wagon.
New WRX wheel I got for a steal. I also installed a new stereo and speakers, it was long overdue.
I agreed to do the timing on my buddys car and ended up doing not only that but his water pump, all new timing covers, a larger radiator, external AT cooler, CAI, and my old wheels. I'm pretty sure I've passed on the bug.
It took a while but I finally got around to installing the 04 (GT-b ish) style bumper. I'm more than pleased with it, I went ahead and plastidipped my grille at the same time too.
Currently the car has been running well with only $15 worth of oil leaks I had to fix. I've swapped in and even bigger radiator, the 200mm HKS super filter from my RS, as well as its fancy non leaking oil cap.
The project after that was EDM needles in the cluster and an LED in my brake like which turned it purple for whatever reason, kinda cool I guess.
Lately with only a little suspension work to be done I've been focusing on renovating my garage/shop I'm storing and working on my cars at. I'll be RS swapping a 95 Impreza wagon with EJ20k cams to use as a rally car while I widebody and build an EJ22t for the coupe. The wagon might be getting the 20k block with upgraded pistons and a turbo (twin maybe?) build in the near future though, then it'd be a true 'RS' Legacy. Here's the most recent shot of my legacy in the back ally of my shop. I'll keep you guys updated as things go.
