no blue printing.the blue print is in my head when im in the moment but ya the rest of that stuff i also have a realy nice torque tuned header for it and ill do my own cat back exhaust and im gona build custom intake spacers and parabolic spacers for a longer and cooler intake charge



i was able to get 50% more power out of the last rig a ea82 when everyone sead it couldent be done this engine has so much more potential but if i get anywere neer %50 more juice out of this one it will be a monster

Nice, reminds me of my old baja bug at Pismo Dunes! That stuff is hard on your back and body in general, but you know that, I don't do airborne anymore lol.

GC8 is my favorite chassis. I just like the front ends the most on the older ones. Had a bug eye in my driveway for some time. It grew on me. Hawk eye looks better than those though.

these are dirt cheap out here you can pick them up for $500 almost any day of the week i dought mine is even worth that i cant even get 500 for the lego in the back ground and its almost cherry condition and runs like a top we just dont need it anymore we have 6 roos right now lol and the new kona took its place as a daily driver the imp is just basicly so i can go play rcs in the desert or were ever lol

there is a guy in your area that builds desert racing subarus he basicly came up with a trick suspention set up that can handle the speed needed for racing hes not vary competitive out west here but he dose realy good in the south sadly though the unibodys disintigrate with abuse thats were my blue one is right now the sheetmetal is tearing and ripping apart

Ferp420, awesome video, my Subi likes the desert runs too but I'm not quite as hard on it you! I've been watching several Subi guys on YouTube lately,

Sorry to hear about your latest front end damage, but I"m sure you'll have it fixed up soon.

Is your header UEL or equal length?

VW Golf wheels supposedly are proper 2x100mm +45mm backspacing too.

Thats a sweet ride! My buddy built a nice 2000 Forester. I helped a bit making the front and rear 2" spacer blocks, plus a bit of bumper work. Unfortunately the car was traded in due to some mechanical issues, and was replaced with a 2nd gen pathfinder.
