    Please don't make me resort to craigslist..

    I bought this legacy in Denver CO in fall of 2014. I swapped in a 166K EJ22 and installed EJ22T parts (Heads and exhaust) sourced from Hawaii of all places.. And a lil local TD04. Its un-tuned but running a raising rate fuel pressure regulator that worked adequately. The body is sitting at ~190K currently. It has upgraded front (WRX) and rear (H6) brakes, all the jiggly bits for the turbo (FXT intercooler, WRX TD04, aforementioned EJ22T parts, etc.) And probably some other Subaru bolt on's i'm forgetting.

    This winter on a drive home from work, one cylinder started a hefty misfire and I limped it over to the parts store for fresh plugs. New plugs did nothing and my supposition is that the valve guides have gone on cylinder 3 (whatever cylinder lives next to hot HOT Mr. turbo) and it getting a dose of oil in there.. Really rough idle, blue smoke, the whole 9 yards. I drove it twice all winter on our snowiest of days and it did ok, but my FWD van is less smokey and lopey so this pup has sat around, aside from a short scoot to avoid snow emergencies.

    Show up with a flatbed and 600 bucks. Or if you live in Midway St. Paul I'll drive it a max of 4 blocks to your house :) I have a title in my name, and probably some other Subaru bits you can take (turbo, suspension, etc.)
