Lucy - 01 LGT BH
I am official starting my build thread for my lovely wagon.
It is my second Subaru. First was a 1998 Forester w/ 2.5" lift and 2.2 swap.
I bought this car in April 2012 and I have loved it every day since.
The clutch was at its end when I bought the car and it was missing the driver's side fog light. The car has definitely been in an accident on the front left because the hood, front bumper, and left fender are slightly off color. Also the core support is bent slightly but the title is clean.
I've been to WCSS 12, Big Northwest Subaru Meet 2012, and WCSS 13. All were fantastic shows!

Here's where I'm at:
OE Replacement Exedy Clutch
Yellow fogs
Cosmo Racing Short Ram Intake
Painted snowflakes
DNA Short Throw Shifter
2 12" Phillips subs w/ Phoenix Gold amp
Whiteline 20mm 3-way adjustable sway bar

My future plans:
KYB GR2 struts w/ H&R lowering springs
STI front lip
02/03 WRX seats
17" or 18" wheels painted Light Gray
Light bar with Hella 500's
Supertones painted to match wheels
Franken Motor (EJ25 w/ EJ22 heads)
Window Tint
UEL Headers, 2.25" midpipe, SPT axle back

Now for the pics!:

Looking very cool! Liking what you did with the fogs

H&R springs have been ordered and will be on by Sunday.
Going to be piecing together an exhaust here shortly.
UEL's, 2.25" midpipe and Forza or SPT muffler.

Got hooked up with some Supertones and got them wired up to the stock.

So i wired them by splicing my current horns wire to some 14g wire.

Next I put some female connectors on the other end of the wire and plugged my power and ground wires into the horn. I ran the ground wire to the bolts that held on the original horns.

I noticed that I was having an issue with the horns rubbing on the back of my grille so I bent the brackets to give myself some more clearance.

I then bolted the brackets to the bolts that held on the radiator screen.

Noticed that I was still having clearance issues with my grille so I grabbed some tin shims and cut into my grille.

Now I just look, listen and enjoy!

Looking good. Love the color.

I love the wagon, but I gotta ask; what is the difference between the regular fog lights versus the yellow ones? I am seeing those everywhere now.

cpundyk 10-07-2012 11:28 AM

Yellow lights cut threw the fog better.

GTborn01 10-08-2012 09:23 AM

They become more of a fog light rather then extra driving lights too. And looks better in my opinion.

Very nice wagon, looks like mine, same color, yellow film on fogs, but my wheels aren't black (but the ones I'm getting are) and mine isn't lowered yet, still waiting on the Impreza mounts to get here then I'll have everything I need.

How do you like that intake?

What is the deal with horns I see everywhere on this forum though? Never thought I'd be adding a horn to my list of upgrades haha.

GTborn01 10-18-2012 03:38 PM

The horns are extra loud! And look good.
The intake is good for the price. I'll be getting rid of it shortly to get a real cold air

cpundyk 10-22-2012 03:45 AM

this guy wants my whole exhuast system setup and intake! im glad i can help you choose!!

GTborn01 10-22-2012 11:54 AM

Not your EXACT set up but very similar, yes. You know our cars are limited in parts

Dragon-Wagon 11-23-2012 11:53 PM

GT, what cai are you looking to get? Also, do you notice any extra power with the current intake on your leggy?

I'm going to get the cosmo CAI. My current short ram didn't give me any noticeable improvement. Just more sound
