    Default my subi story!

    so i keep posting my pics in someones elses journal thinking since we were on the same road of turning or ej22s into monsters , so i figured he'd like to see what i had goin on .. the pronblem here was, i think i ended up posting to many pics and flodded his . so ill just start my own here ..
    so heres a pic of the ride i started with in 2010 ..( this isnt the first pic. unfortunantly i cant find any before i painted it and fixed the front end so well start here ...

    so when i bought this car the hole front end was smashed , the car was blue and grey. i bought it off a kid for 700.00 bucks yup i said it ...all the shops said it was beyond repair (obviously theyve not met me ) ..anyways the second the cash was in hand they gave me the keys ..and yes it started right up . and i drove it home , imediatly getting out the come along and slowly pulling the whole front end out till it was , well close to perfection. got a new hood and head light sanded it painted it black and SHAZAM
    it all started ther and moved up to this ...so far..well see what the future holds!!!!

    next my 4" lift
    suppliers sjrlift.com
    and high guys subaru
    i mixed the both of them to get the most lift for my buck ..ya i got the full 4 after som paint my best freind and some paint on the lights now before you do this lift beware!!!!!!!
    got the 4" on the front only ...be weary with this lift theres alot of problems i ran into and still imobile from that they failed to mention ..(raidiator hoses ,gasket hoses steering linkage although i got a longer one it still to short ..shifter cable , grounds ,starter wires and now my hood dosent close ) just tedious **** i dont have time for and since this is the daily driver ill be walkin to work till i can fix it once again but not all hope is lost ,with any good build comes great struggle ..great things dont come easy and if they did they wouldent be fun so wish me luck if anything when this is all done my passion will just burn brighter ..heres some pics of the front


    alright my car is driveable again afer 4 days of little time to spend ...remeber this is only the front lifted ,...the back will be lifted soon ...stay tuned

    That's quite a beast you're putting together - looks awesome. When is the snorkel going to be completed - looks like that K&N is gonna act more like a wet/dry shop vac being exposed like that. Are you gonna put some Mickey Thompson on that monster? Nice work!

    i can plug it in any time just gotta run a 90 or shop vac hose ...yeah the k&n filter was kinda spur of the moment it looks cool but yes it sucks in water ..thats why i built the snorkel ...anyways i think im goin with hankook dynapro mts or atms
