FS-1998 Impreza L JDM STI Swap
The car originally came with AWD and a 2.2L NA and the first engine swap (EJ20G) was from a '96 JDM GF8. Since then engine components have been changed to the ones listed below.

The current engine has approximately 15k miles on the block. The car is tuned on '91 octane and made ~230awhp/230awtq on EngineLogics dyno at 17psi at 7k RPM. The engine and turbo have room for more but this was plenty for the intended use - daily driver. The chassis has just over 104k miles, but is very clean. It is running a little rich at low RPM and could use a retune. This is a Texas/Arizona car so free of rust :) Lastly I drove the car over 3000 miles from Arizona to Maine and back to Vermont, it is quite reliable. Used a little less than a quart of oil over 3k miles. This would make a great rally car or track car as it already is wired up w/ a link G4 ECU!

- Every once in awhile puffs a little blue/white smoke on startup, it did this when the last owner had it, doesnt bother me.
- Needs new wideband gauge, may/may not have one sorted before sale

Asking price $sold$
No trades please, this car has over $20K invested in it. It would be hard to build at my asking price. The reason I am selling is because I drive to Maine quite a bit and I need something more economical.
Thanks for looking! text, call, or email!
