Thanks for sharing the pictures. I love that last one.
Seems to be a nice one, and even has the oem wheels. Great cars in that last picture, Subaru would be proud of that.

Thanks fellas!
@Loyale 2.7 Turbo, the Brat is going to get put up in the garage, floor pans replaced, rocker panels replaced, rear wheel wells replaced, front subframes repaired, new rear shocks, probably a newer low mileage EA81 along with an EA82 5spd swap.

@BH, yeah Subaru oughta cut me a check for advertisements like that!! I've even got a Subaru banner in the garage above the RS' parking spot.

Actually that's what I was told, use Subaru OEM STI head gaskets and they should be stronger and bump up the compression ratio a little for more torque. I will be doing mine within the next 2 months

Hey nice one, always liked the Imprezas interior/seats! :) my ant had a 98 OBS turbo, I loved how it felt! (And no, she's not a Subaru person, nor a car loving type :( Poor subie was drivin' hard and never taking care of)

Anyhoo sound like you got the work to do on the Brat, you gonna post pics of the progress from time to time?

yeah. SUBARU would be proud! I like the banner, were'd you pick it up?

Thanks for the honorable mention. I have not had a chance to take more pictures of mine because of the crappy weather. You got real lucky to find a BRP sedan in 5 speed, what I originally wanted but settled for a coupe instead. I'm up to 102k on my old girl and should be getting timing belt changed when income tax comes in and my STi catback put on this week.

swapparoo....the Roo.
I bet the 4door 5spd has lower production numbers by far. I like the Green ones best, as that was the special order color. still looking for a green 5spd 2dr, for my ej22t from my 92 to go into.
