    Old GT after transplant :)

    OK so this is the story
    After selling my previous "rocket in the pocket" Fiat Punto GT (1,4Turbo) I started searching for something else... And I came with the idea to fulfill my childhood dream - Impreza
    The one I've found was shabby looking GT from Switzerland, MY99, imported to Poland in 2000 Typically exteript was not so well, there were virtually no rear arches and generally many things outside screaming for help.
    But all the goodies were inside Car was constantly build and upgraded by a guy working in some of the best tuning firms in Warsaw and in Poland. So... This is what I got for less than 6000$:

    GT my99 4-dood sedan
    STi my03 EUDM AVCS 2,0t EJ207 semi-closed deck, 317hp (280WHP) / 383 Nm torque
    Gearbox - TY754VB1CA - 5MT (STi - RA '99) with rear R180 plated diff with DCCD managed by DCCDPro Manual
    STi short-shifter
    Suspension - Kayaba AGX
    Whiteline strut brace front and rear
    AntiLiftKit - Whiteline
    All suspension bushes changed to Powerflex / Whiteline (including rear diff polibushes )
    Whiteline front (22mm) and rear (20mm) sway bars + heavy duty mount kits
    Gearbox STi heavy duty mount
    ACT Race Sprung 6 Pad Paddle Clutch
    OMORI gauges: Boost, Oil temperature, EGT + center console mount
    GT/WRX 4-pot 294mm front brakes / Winmax Arma SR brake pads
    GT rear discs
    Flocked dashboard
    Fujitsubo Giken Legalis SuperR full 3" straight-through with 3" wide-flange downpipe
    STi v5 style rear wing
    17" WRX gold rims

    Things added later on:
    some bodywork - to get rid of the rust in rear arches and generally in the whole chassis
    Kevlar-composite engine and gearbox guard
    Kevlar-composite fog light covers
    Big - STi03 style hood scoop
    WRX 2-pot rear 290mm brakes
    Launch control - 4900RPM
    New map - for 280WHP / 317HP
    Radiator fan manual switch
    4-point Sabelt 3" harness
    Bucket seat MircoXL (polish brand) + racing mounts
    17" WRX silver rims
    17" Legacy yellow rims
    16" stock GT Black matte rims
    some Potenza RE070 tyres and many more

    The beginning:


    Arches:


    As for now:


    Trackday with some friends:




    A friendly greeting for the members of MFRT - Middle Finger Racing Team:


    And an autocross training with LC:



    Now - I an still trying to learn to drive Scratchy and waiting eagerly for winter.
    Plans - not much: find someday front helical diff for 5MT and mount gearbox blast-plates. Mayby some AntyLagSystem will come in handy?

    And this is it ... for now

    Yesterday I've been doing some road tests. I'm not very happy, but it's not all that bad.
    Best performed with LaunchControl and slow shifting to 2nd and 3rd.
    Numbers are in kmh of course.
