Thought I should start a thread all about my ride - a 1995 Impreza LX EJ22, AWD, Automatic.
I picked up this little beauty last year June/Julyish from a buddy of mine that, at the time wanted me to take the stereo out of it and put it in her husbands car. I asked what the reasoning was and she mentioned she was going to junk the Impreza. Its only issues were a blown back window due to some random passerby a-hole with a pellet gun, and a loud exhaust. I told her, heck, I'll give you junk rate for the car (I called around and found the average "tow away" price was about 350), and there I had it.. a new Impreza.
I drove around with the back glass like that for a while and after further examination, the noisy exhaust was simply that the manifold was *not* attached on the d/s to the heads! one 10$ gasket later, VOILA! no more exhaust noise!
Since I bought it I've:
replaced the back hatch (havent painted it yet)
I lifted it 3ish inches.. nothing with tires just yet
A 2.25" exhaust from the cat-back with a muffler-delete.
High-flow air filter (hot-air intake at the moment),
CB with 125w linear and a Prediator 20k antenna up top,and a stereo/sub install.....
to come within the next few days (quite literally)
Viper 5701 Security/Remote start/1-mile range 2way remote (I got a killer deal)
8k HID's (got a decent deal on amazon)
Performing Timing belt maintance (I fix copiers for a living and drive a LOT, almost 2500 miles this year already)
P/S-Front CV Axle (thanks to ShawnW!)
New struts, I'm debating on getting forester struts or replacing the Impreza struts i already have and keep my spacers..
cue the free-flow of pictures!
Picture when i first got it..
Now as it sits:
