Default FS: GC8 RX STi Conversion

Hi all,

CAR IS UP FOR URGENT SALE- can mod please remove EOI from title.

I have been offered a position at Uni over east, I am having to sell my 1997 Impreza RX with full ver 3 JDM STi running gear conversion to subsidise part of the cost of living over there.
Build thread can be found here:
http://www.perth-wrx.com/vb/general-...i-project.html

PASSED DOT INSPECTION FOR DRIVELINE CONVERSION

PWRX Members price: $10,000 firm
No swaps/trades

Drivetrain:
JDM ver3 STi engine
JDM ver3 STi IHI VF23 turbo
JDM ver3 STi 5 speed transmission
JDM ver3 STi diff's
JDM ver3 STi ECU
3" Turbo back exhaust into 4" cannon

Handling:
JDM ver3 STi control arms
JDM ver6 STi suspension struts & springs(pinky's)
JDM ver3 STi Front brakes
WRX rear disc brakes
Cusco front strut brace
Whiteline Racing H-brace

Cosmetic:
JDM GC8 STi Alloy bonnet
Ultrex MY98 front lip
'09 WRX rims
Colour coded side skirts
Colour coded rear bumper spats
WRX Spoiler

Interior/Stereo:
JDM ver3 STi Dash
Sony head unit
BOSS 6.5" front Drivers
Alpine D-Mono Block Amp with 12" S-Type Subwoofer
OMP Suede steering wheel
AutoWatch Immobiliser & Central Locking just installed

Probably a heap of stuff I have forgotten- will update if I remeber anything I have left out.

The Bad: Body/paintwork in average condition for it's age. Rear & rear passenger window tinting is starting to go.



All of the STi goodies were professionally installed and taken from a JDM ver3 STi V-Limited halfcut by Subaru specialists S-Technic. I have receipts for the half-cut and all work done by S-Technic.

Serviced at S-technic, has 80% new rubber all round- mechanically has never missed a beat. Odo: 119,XXXkm


This car has been an awesome project for me, the reason I did this instead of just buying an STi was the following:
-Something unique
-JDM ver3 STi came with one of the most aggresive cam & tune set-up's to leave the Subaru factory for GC8's (as I have been informed).
So it will be a regretful sale- but i'll no doubt be back into a Subaru as soon as Uni is finished & I can get a real job!

Was just repeating what I have been told,
Will remove that bit if that's actually the case.
200kgs is all in the running gear? I would of thought body & interior would of had something to do with it?

It could be slightly lighter than a WRX STi if it doesn't have a rear spoiler, electric windows, electric mirrors, split folding rear seat etc etc.....but starting with a RX/GX/LX shell isn't neccessarily an advantage. Not trying to spam your for sale advert, just trying to clear up a misconception before everyone wants a RX conversion to save 200 kegs!
