Hello all, its been a while and the time has finally come.
For those who care, a little background information. I picked up my 05 OBP LGT in January of 2012 which makes this Subaru number five and by far my favorite one. Iv lately stayed away from the mod bug which got me in a little trouble following my last build which was my 01 RSTI. A full JDM Version 8 swapped 2.5RS coupe as seen here.
But alas it was time to get a big boy more grownup car and just leave it the hell alone. Of course we all know how long that lasts. Only took a month of ownership before the mod bug set in and we started tweaking some things. Day 1, purchased on ebay of all places from the original owner and never looked back.
So I have enjoyed this car quite a bit over the last two years but now at the time of starting this build we are approaching 143k glorious miles and its time to move on to the next step. Over the last year the car has developed some of the worst pistion slap I have ever heard. So bad, if it were a customer car, I probably wouldn't feel comfortable letting it go back to them. But since she has no ill effects from it, I just keep driving it.
I am an Audi/Volkswagen tech by trade at an indie shop here in CT and so Im blessed to have many great resources and help on this build. So Id like to thank the following peeps ahead of time getting me here.
