History
Bought with 146k with electrical problems in 2013 from the original owner - an older professional gentlemen. It was getting erratic codes causing fail safe mode. Another mechanic at the shop I worked at replaced the accelerator pedal with relay and the engine wire harness before customer traded in and I got it on the cheap. I Pulled engine to replace exhaust valves with full valve job. Found signs of metal in oil pan. Tore engine down to find main bearing just starting to let go. Replaced main/crank bearings, rod bearings, and piston rings, every engine seal, all coolant and PVC hoses, T-belt and idlers. Replaced throttle body after getting codes then ECM complete the repair for the electrical problem.

Modifications

Drivetrain
2002 WRX exhaust valves (fraction of cost and work just as good!)

2014 WRX intercooler - came off a WRX with 7 miles went under water during the 2013 Colorado flooding. Rinsed it out good, let it dry out - much better than my cracked one! Pretty sure it is the same intercooler though.
