Well that was arranged originally ( sorry Alan). Biggest goal was im trying to build a complex/new house soon, so i needed the room/money. My friend offered to buy it from me "immediately" and come to find out a bunch of dudes pitched in to basically plan on taking the car and doing all the shitty fab work that would have taken me forever to do to make sure I have a car and can do hoodlum shit with them again.

Short Answer: My friends are pretty much the best.

Another YAJ item scooped up on the low. Wish this was my seat. I have always had a soft spot for these older seats..

Are you building the house on your own from the ground up?

haha its all good.

Yes I am. I currently plan to build a In-laws Suite first which will be a pretty simple one bedroom/bath/kitchen type thing but its going to be attached to a finished shop. The wife and I are planning on living in that until the house is finished. Trying to get around 10 acres of property to put it on so i can do some stupid ass shit.

Really trying to make sure I do it right....once.

kind of like this as example of suite. Making the upper part livable.

wow yeah 10 acres would be really fucking fantastic!
I'm currently planning just to do what you're doing but with 3acres.
It's just finding the location and at the right price.
I don't see it happening for another 5 years until I have more equity in my house.
How long have you been planning?
I love Minnesota. I was just in Shakopee last month.

I've lived in my current house for 7 years. I bought one when I was mega young. I've been slowly planning over the last year and a half what exactly I would like to see go down. Starting to look at property towards the end of this year as I would love to start this project by next year.

Spent a little time inspecting the motor I got. I think visually the motor could use exhaust valve seals but im going to toss it in and do what I learned best here on CA240...Roll the dice and ride the dragon.



My plan was to use all the original everything for a while but the turbo is ganked so now I will have to drop a little more coin for a different turbo set up. I just want to drive.

I keep trying to remind myself that I have waited 5 years whats another 10 months.

My new carpet and pad showed up yesterday so I drank some beer and pretended to lay out some of the interior to make myself feel better.

My Mazwork adapters came in for the calipers. These were designed to use an EVO 8 rotor and to be used for an s1314. These bolted together on my GKtech knuckles with no modification which is radical ( they noted modification on the website.) Going to try and scoop some rotors/pads and lines to keep the brake system install rolling.



Wife was impressed with my size......................caliper

Thats awesome. Terror and excitement with a little confusion in one face. It's as big as her head! HA!
Does she ever ask you about car stuff? My fiancee is all lost and clueless when it comes to car stuff. It's kinda cute but than pretty frustrating.
Are you planning to do anything with the ctsv caliper cosmetic wise?

haha thats what she was impressed with was the overall size of the caliper.

Her dad was a body guy for subaru for the last 18 years so shes been around cars. Super supportive for everything I do. I know it fustrates her when I change ideas and shit haha.

I think im going to rock them the factory silver with the badge..i kinda like it. Probably paint the 2 sets of rear 300's silver to match

Cool she has your back. That's a great feeling.
Yeah definitely do as you plan with the calipers. It looks real slick. I doubt most people would realize that factory decal on there. It's surprisingly not out of place looking.

My understanding is these calipers were also fitted on a certain Ferrari ( I can't remember which but have embossing of Made in Italy ) and thought red with the horse would be cool too but i don't think it will fit the end color scheme.

Yeah seriously that red would be cool. But you can't go wrong with what you have now. Ah so close! It's going to be surreal when this thing sliding and making loud noises!

So im hoping this is actually the real deal. Recent YAJ score, we will see when it arrives.



Hoping to have the interior completed in the next week or so. It will be leaving for some body love and shit next month and it would rule to have done so all I have to do is have the motor dropped in.

Doors on. Aero taped on. Mirrors on. Successful weekend.





I also changed my mind a little with the help of Do-Luck. Stands are getting sorted and wing ends being made currently. Small mock.
