Edit: Digging some of the cars on your FB page. White s14 is clean, was that yours? My brother has a red s14 w/ a blacktop swap and a s15 turbo. Made 280whp.

Also a huge fan of 2.5rs's, and really any subaru. :P

The 1995 S14 was my baby, I bought the car as a super clean one owner, only mods the old man I bought it from did to it were Nismo Coilovers, Cusco front strut bar and some Motegi Wheels(17x9 up front and 18x10.5 rear). I bought a running SR20DET Red Top swap for it but sadly it had a spun rod bearing. Decided to rebuild the motor, I did full oem build on it, new bearings, rings, pistons, all new head, etc... Had the stock t25, full 3" turbo back exhaust to a 4" tip(buddy club spec 2), FMIC, Intake, Boost Controller, etc... car was a blast! Miss it daily! Sold it then it got wrecked and totaled out.

Summer Mode:

Winter Mode:

Next car was that 1999 Impreza 2.5rs. That was a blast to drive! It was all stock on in the motor department besides ebay manifold, and Apexi Nior exhaust. Car was sitting on some Work XD9's(my favorite wheel) powder coated purple(my favorite color and probably going on the Miata once I decide a wheel choice. The suspension on the car was a very rare and expensive Prodrive Coilover setup, HKS actually made them but Prodrive had some more options then the HKS versions had. it was a great daily driver and very fun to drive!

Thank you for the positive comments and feedback!

Pulled the battery out and threw it on a 2 amp slow charge for the night, hopefully it charges and holds. If not going to be purchasing a new one and looking for recommendations...

LOVE dat 2.5rs. I've got a fozzie project I'm currently playing with. Actually just got a new motor for it this weekend. Subie/miata is probably the perfect combo.

This thread makes me miss my Boston more than I care to admit

Nice find on the car! I bet there is a set of Konis or Bilsteins with sleeves under there

Eh, he didn't get that until some time after selling the 2000 Miata, and I thought he got rid of the Forester some time before getting the 'vette too.

Doesn't even have the 'Vette anymore either. Can't blame him though. No auto please.

Ha ha ha ha sat on this deal for 2 months, didn't call or bug the guy at all and he got hard up for money and took my offer, perseverance and patience pays off... I honestly thought he wasn't gonna do it but I got lucky and he did. I plan on working the the car this weekend to see what else I can find. I am honestly still amazed that after sitting a year plus the car fired right up. I drove it around the block and she runs good but has some power issues in second gear, nothing a tune up and some good gas wont fix, along with checking the timing and cleaning all the grounds and wiring. I cant wait to get this thing going and cruising it down the street here in this small town I live in. I also cant wait to get hit up Miller Motorsports Park next season! Big plans for this little car! Thanks for all the positive feedback guys! I have been apart of Subaru forums, Nissan forums, Cummins forums, and Honda forums and this is by far the best one! Every one has a great sense of humor, and everyone is so kind and not **** stance this stance that douche bags!

MMP's wide open wednesday's autocross sessions can't be beat for some super cheap fun IMO. $10 and you can run as many times as you want for like 3 hours. That's where my avatar picture was taken. The AX courses aren't great or anything (they're the only one's i've driven... they're really short and don't look near as cool as some of the videos I see online) but it's so cheap and easygoing.

Enjoy! Keep us updated on your progress.
