2018 Waxstock prep / journey.

OK so a month ago I bought myself a Subaru Impreza STI Hawkeye project as all I see is them getting broken and sold as bits.

Apart from that ive always wanted one.

I plan to bring it back to life and try and get it at Waxstock in 2018.

Please follow my journey and help me get it there.

Loved these always wanted one after my wrx but before I could find one I found my other must have, which was a 2006 Forster sti. That was and still is the most fun I've had on 4 wheels.

What was done to it to get to 420? It must of had some serious internal work done. I know the later specc'd hatch Sti's had much stronger turbos and even them with full decatt'd and mapped to with in an inch of there life only made close to 400.
