Future Plans:
The car will be built through the next 2 years as a fast reliable DD with plenty of power and suspension mods to participate in track days, after that it will be shipped to Saudi Arabia (I'll be working there starting 2012) and will participate in shows and track days there, and will be street driven to meets and such to represent what subies are capable of since there aren't many STi's over there, hopefully one day I can hang out with the guys from Bahrain too since it's like 30 minutes away from my place.

Planned Build (EVOLVING):
-AMS Small Battery Kit
-Built Motor (TopSpeed RR1/Race Head Port)
-KillerB oil pan
-KillerB oil pickup tube

-Aquamist HSF-6 methanol injection system
-Howerton Engineering enclosed tanks and pump setup

-AMR UEL Header

and much more...

I couldn't leave damn subies, i hate them with a passion

honestly, after comparing all my options, nothing compares to the fun of the STi unless I lose the back seats (vette), or go ~$70k, which is pretty steep considering that I'm getting married 4 months from now

the plan on this one is i'm not gonna rush, go easy, and do it once

I think I am more experienced with subarus now, so that should help me

I don't know where to start, but I know I'm not gonna do parts that will be replaced, so no stage 2 for this one, and I will wait till i save up and go rotated

wish me luck

-AJ

I don't understand why you traded an '08 for a '10. What was the reasoning behind this?
