Can't tell for sure but this sounds like sarcasm.. except for the green pine tree freshener, I believe that part

The front cv shafts would need to be changed, I would need to add the computer thing for controlling the center diff, I would need a new drive shaft to the rear end, and I would have to regear the rear diff. So about $5000 to swap in an STi tranny. The other reason is because I prefer the 5 speed over the 6 speed, just too much shifting.
I didn't think about all of those required mods...better just go with the full STI swap

That would be nice but for now I'm just going to hunt down a Legacy GT tranny which is stronger and have it cryoed. That will be more than enough for what I'm running now.

I agree. Drop an EJ257 w/ tranny. Go onto NASIOC forum and pick up an engine/transmission for $3k or so. Build the motor while your old motor is still on the car. Get the new motor hot tanked then sleeve it, bore it out, forged pistons, forged rods, springs, retainers, camshafts, headstuds, reverse manifold and then start on the transmission After both are done, spend another $7k or so on turbo set-up, tune, EMS, proper gauges (practical instead for looks) then start on suspension. Coilovers, front/rear sways(lower/upper), full underbody bracing, roll cage etc. Then replace the brakes and buy a big brake kit and all stainless steel lines. After all is said and done your looking at close to my previous STI build, around $25k in mods and loving every bit of it.

But the FIRST mod is always the DRIVER!!!...without an experienced driver all the modifications that you put into it will never be used to their most potential! And something, whether a spun rod/spun bearing (which subies are notorious for) or another tranny issue, something is always bound to happen.

That would be nice but I'm not made of money and I don't plan on modifying the car that much. The WRX is more or less a way for me to get around with decent fuel economy on long trips and plenty of power for passing and maybe a bit of horse play around town but I'm not going to be building a race car or show car. It is going to stay at or under 400whp. I plan on doing just enough engine modifications so I can run an fmic, then maybe a body kit with new paint, some Motegi wheels and a carbon fiber vented hood. That's it. The jeep is my toy and where I will be dumping the $25k or so into. I can't afford two toys.

Check out NASIOC if you get time. Lots of articles and first hand experiences. Most people know there stuff, but you do get the occasional DB.

You definitely did not buy my jeep. My jeep was pretty legit, other then the fact it got 190 miles per tank if I was lucky.



Yeah we do have quite a few in our parking lot. The one civilian douche bag owns a nice one, but it has never seen a spec of dirt on it and he refuses to take it to the ORV park.
I'll say this after 13 1/2 years in this career field I don't even feel my own pain anymore.

So I'm buying new shocks and don't know which ones to get, looking at rancho 9000, bilsteins 5100 / 5150 and others but those are the main two that I've been looking at any suggestions?

Probably should just get rid of the leaf springs in all 4 corners, just saying.

i think about everyone will agree a yj is the furthest from a real jeep. Well except yj owners of course. There is a reason those square headlights lasted very few years, sales were suffering.

Very few years....87-95 is about 9 years of square head lights, the TJ lasted from 97-06 also 9 years, the sad little JKs lasted a measly 5 years before they needed a change. The YJ is the first generation of wrangler model before that we had CJs, YJs are closer to the original jeeps of WWII then the TJs and JKs.

You can't wheel on Jupiter because it's a gas giant. I'm up for a Mars run though. I hear they have some sick rock formations for crawling.

Also I hear they have a sick lack of atmosphere for hot ass days, and a sweet lack of oxygen for dying..
