Hi All, I've met a few of you from the forum over the last year since I've been gathering parts and building my wagon. Others may have seen random pictures that I've thrown up on here from time to time, but I am finally putting it all in one place. This is a low budget build so expect a lot of used parts and much imperfection. So I rescued this 2002 Impreza Outback Sport 5 speed from the depths of Stewartville, MN where it apparently roamed the corn fields (literally from all the dirt I am still pulling out of it) until it turned it’s bearings. $600 later I had it in my garage. The previous owner decided to tape the tail lights together which I can only assume was so that he didn’t get pulled over when he occasionally drove it on the road between cornfields. Pretty much every corner of this car had been caved in at some point. The driver’s side fender was no exception. The interior was very greasy, smokey, and very stock. Eventually my friend and I dropped an EJ25D block paired with EJ251 heads into it that we picked up. I also picked up front seats from a 05 RS and 2002 WRX wheels. The following image shows the 1.5-2 inch lift that forester springs provided. At this point in time I decided to sell my truck (and the payment that came with it) and rely on the mighty “Black Knight” as my daily driver. Spring of 2014 I picked up some fenders that were off a 2002 WRX and they ended up matching pretty well. With some encouragement I picked up a 1992 Subaru SVX to be a donor for an EG33 swap (3.3L H6). We were able to drive the SVX around 30 miles back to my place with only having to fight with a blown rear tire. Since then I have been planning the attack on EG33 swap. I recently began the work of pulling the franken EJ251D. Decided to go with a 4.44 drivetrain so I picked up a 5MT from a Forester along with a 4.44 rear diff and axles. So I removed the entire drive-train. While I was at it the front U-Frame was rusted pretty badly. To replace this I worked with a scrapper in California and besides shipping being rather expensive on a part this size the price I thought was reasonable at $125.
