Might be old news, but I think it is WILD.

What happens when a Subaru WRX STi humps a Subaru Brat?

This does. The Brat body is on the receiving end of an apparent full STi engine and interior swap, although there’s no word on whether the Brat’s traditional ultra-hazardous jump seats in the pickup bed were preserved. It’s certainly not much of a sleeper in World Rally Blue with those UK-market wheels and exposed FMIC. Plenty of pictures in the link below document the transformation.

Yeah thats one sweet brat. a lot of work seemed to have been put in it. that intercooler is a *little* too big for me though.:) I have a question, Are brats post 1987 considered gen 3's? do they have standard 5 lugs? does anyone know how hard it would be to convert if not?

No brat ever came standard with 5lug. They're still considered Gen2.

I am in love! What a combo...always dreamed of it while driving my brat but never had the $$$$ or the space to pull it off. What a blast!

I still dont understand why people claim the back seats are so dangerous.. It is securely bolted in and has seatbelts, I find it no more dangerous than the back seats of a Jeep Wrangler...
