    Nitrated? Cryo treated maybe?

    Sounds like a pretty badass wife! You're a lucky man!

    I like the color of the wrap. Car looks white in that last pic, not silver? Lol

    Start taking that car apart and mailing it to me! I'll store them until the Subaru can be imported!! Otherwise you could get most of the things you have in that car here for pretty reasonable and you'll do a better job on it the second time around!

    Tons! We are known as "the hockey state". And why wouldn't we be with more than 10,000 lakes! There are outdoor and indoor. Plus many men, women, and childrens leagues to get involved in.

    Tell your pops "excellent choice" for me. :)

    Lol my neighbors build a small rink in their front yard every winter for their kids (~5yo) even though there's already one at the elementary school 4 blocks away and 5 more rinks for league play a mile away at como park. Dude somehow manages to never kill his lawn either.

    If you want an Evo, get and 8 or a 9 not an X. I saw a clean unmodified Evo 8 just sell for $35k and its like 15 years old. Evos are expensive cuz they stopped making them.

    You already know subarus inside and out, why switch? If you just want to build a subaru with big power why not just try to find a cheap GD STI with a blown motor.
    Or get a GD wrx for suuuper cheap and swap the STI 6MT in ($3k-4k) and put an IAG motor in it.

    If you want cheap AWD thats fast get a DSM lol. Or just cheap and lots of power get a Mustang and put a super/turbo on it.
