Chance's 1998 Forester s/tb
« on: August 30, 2013, 08:51:08 AM »
Well, its here :). This project thread likely wont go very far other than maintenance that I keep up on with it. That being said... This is my new daily and the gc will be track/sunday drive next season so my gc thread might actually get some love (havnt updated in forever.)

Anyway, here she is in my back alley all washed up :)





Pulls hard, no issues other than brakes squeaking, perfect interior. Couldn't be happier with it.

The only thing that was questionable was that there was a boost gauge installed and apparently the previous owner just cut the boost line so its had a vacuum/boost leak this whole time. I temporarily sealed it.

I was under the impression that 21 yo was the oldest that you had to be for any country but i guess that could be incorrect. Rephrase, I am now legal in every country that I would consider visiting lol. Anyway.... Thanks :D

Most vehicles are a whisper compared to my impreza... lol same goes for this. It actually has a really nice tone. Not loud ay all when just cruising around but you can hear it when you floor it.
