they can void any coverage you have because the car is not registered as a turbo is all i meant.
getting the car appraised is just the easiest way to get through most of the obstacles if anything should happen to the car

The engine looks like it is on life support with all the tubes and piping and stuff


So when can you start doing that to mine?

Finally got some decent pics.

The fitment issues on the hood and bumper are because of the front mount, and the charge piping.

Im hoping to resolve that stuff soon.

Check your cold side charge pipe where it is coming up from the intercooler. It is in contact with the metal and over a few weeks the steel will grind a hole in the charge pipe, use a 3inch rubber grommet! Other wise it will take forever to find the boost leak when one occurs!

Does that model legacy comes with an sti motor or something? I'm not too familiar with the subaru family. Looks like a sweet ride, I didn't know subaru made such bitchin coups. (that SVX makes me gag)

THey came with an STI motor in Japan, this one was swapped.

followed you on the highway going out to langford on saturday night around 5, first thing i noticed was the 3 bright green gauges in the middle of your dash, looks pretty slick! I like the exhaust too, you were playing around a bit, there was traffic but i saw some boost :P
thumbs up, I like that generation of impreza and yours is awesome!
