This is my 2002 Subaru Legacy GT wagon NA 5MT, my NEW daily driver! The other wagon is my wife's 2007 Legacy 2.5i Limited 5EAT. Nothing special yet under... Show more the hood. No turbo...yet, hahaha. I got a cheapie intake that came with the car, still better than the stock box. I'm getting good throttle response, but it can always be better. So THAT's on the upgrade list. RS-R exhaust sounds verrrrry nice! The boxer engine just sounds bad ass alone, but with a good muffler it's even better!Suspension, I got TEIN Flex coilovers, stock sway bars (also on the upgrade list), might add strut bars front and rear. Rims are 17x7 MB Weapons wrapped with Yokohama ES100s. Brakes have 22B STI calipers with slotted rotors. Show Less
Added July 11, 2005: The rusted out exhaust pipe and muffler were barely hanging on for dear life, so I had to take her to the muffler shop immediately. I ki...

I did get the Flowmaster 40 series, cat back with dual 3" pipes exiting just ahead of the rear wheels. Not quite side pipes, but it's better than having the same old stock setup. The muffler guy pointed out that both pipes couldn't exit the rear with the gas tank taking up all the room on the right side. So I had to have 'em come out the sides. Needless to say, but it sounds soooooooo much better now! Just brings a tear to my eyes when I start her up and hit the gas. **sniff sniff**
I elected to keep the running boards on simply because the van still sat too high to not need them anymore. But they will definitely come off when I get Betty sittin' on bags. They most likely will be replaced by side pipes or lower profile lake-style pipes.
What's up next?? The stripes must come off!!!
It's time to play with some color. Right now I am experimenting with graphic designs. I'll post some once I get 'em done. Show Less
Right now, she isn't far from stock, but then I'm also far from finished! I started with a 2"/3" drop, clear side markers that don't st...

With a van, it's not as easy as just opening the hood to get to the air cleaner! She's got a 350 TBI under the doghouse good for 210 hp and 340 lb/ft torque. Oh yeah, she's a one-tire fryer! But she was made for cruisin' and when the time came for it, haulin' too. So speed and performance isn't exactly a priority of mine. Though I always enjoy hearing the rumble of the pipes while driving. Show Less
