Default 2002 Subaru WRX - $9500

Category: Import
Status: Clean Title

I have a 2002 Subaru WRX for sale, in USA - California.

Mileage: 160000 miles
Engine Size: 2.0

Asking price is $9500

2002 Subaru WRX
Aspen white
~160k miles on the chassis
~45k miles on the engine

I know it's not a Miata, but I've been a member on here for a while and wanted to see if there were any interesting offers :)

I love this car and am still not sure about getting rid of it. In June I had a low mileage EJ20 out of a 2004 wrx swapped in at Forman Performance mated to a set of cleaned and rebuilt WRX heads. The water pump, all engine gaskets, headstuds, head gaskets, and timing belt components were replaced with the fresh shortblock, I have receipts and paperwork for everything done on the car. This is essentially a fresh engine with new seals throughout.

At 160k I replaced:
- front wheel bearings and seals
- front hubs
- right front axle
- upstream 02 sensor
- fresh NGK Iridium plugs
- fresh Motul 5w40

I miss rwd coming from miatas and 240s. Looking to trade for a Honda S2000 or something that’s light, rwd, and good on gas.

Currently looking to trade, not sell. But asking $9500.

If you don’t like the price don’t post. I'm in no hurry to sell.

Put down 270whp (5/20/11)

Here’s the mod list:

- EJ20 shortblock ~40k out of an 04
- Rebuilt and cleaned WRX heads
- VF22 turbo
- STI pink fuel injectors
- Perrin up pipe
- JDM STI bypass valve
- Blitz SUS intake with velocity stack
- JDM V7 red intake manifold
- Mishimoto dual core aluminum radiator
- Walbro 255 fuel pump
- NGK Iridium spark plugs (1 step colder)
- ARC thermostat
- Cusco Radiator cap
- X02 Racing big TMIC
- Greddy EVO 2 catback
- 3” downpipe (forgot the brand)

- 2003 transmission installed by the previous owner at 100k
- Redline fluids in the trans and diff
- Exedy street clutch
- Kartboy short shifter
- Group N tranny mount

- Axxis Ultimate pads front and rear
- Fresh Centric blank rotors

- JDM V7 STI struts
- 04 wrx strut mounts
- Progress 22mm adjustable rear sway bar
- Cusco 22mm front sway bar
- Whiteline steering rack bushings

Wheels and tires:
- 17x8 et48 Rota Boost painted white
- 225/45/17 Federal 595s (almost new)
- Muteki open end lug nuts

- OEM Subaru foglight covers
- Debadged trunk with STI emblem

- DIY red HVAC backlight

The bad:

Bump, I decided to keep it... then drove a sub 2400lb car again.

Gotta get back into a miata. Preferably of the supercharged variety.

Sooo. Bump again.

Wanted to keep this thing over the winter but don't think I can afford to :(

I'd really like to trade this for a clean miata+cash.
