If you have to ask you can’t afford a engine swap

A simple google search would have answered this guy’s question.  LS swaps on a Subarus are known to be able to be done, but it seems like this person is more of a dreamer than a doer. Anything can be done with time, talent, and money. However, if you have to ask random people on Facebook how to do something as complex as a engine swap you might be over your head in all three areas.

Brembo (STi) caliper idiocy

I’ll spare you the long sting off comments after this got posted. Basically people were telling the poster that he can do it himself(which is true) and that buying a whole new brembo caliper would be a massive waste of money.

You can go to any machine shop and they will happily take care of the snapped bleeder screw for $20 or a case of beer and you can be sure that your expensive Sti brembo calipers aren’t going to be ruined. Well besides you fucking them up yourself.

Brembo caliper in question

 

Now let’s look at the picture of the rear Brembo the OP posted. Hmmm doesn’t that brake rotor look a little small? (The answer is yes.)  Always double check part numbers even when you are buying from the OEM/Subaru. Triple check whenever you buy from an aftermarket supplier. It’s very easy to get a WRX sized brake rotor instead of the correct STi Brembo sized brake rotor.

Let me blind you with my Subaru Forester

Nothing quite like getting the attention of every cop in your city with your blue tinted headlights with your Subaru Forester.  If a cop doesn’t pull this clown over he is going to blind and piss off every motorist this clown drives by. Someone needs to tell this guy its illegal to have blue and red lights on your vehicle.  I’m sure that this Forester is a rally champion and needs all the light it can get for those dangerous night time rally stages at the Rally America events.

Oh are is that a LED light bar in his hood scoop? Talk about obnoxious.

Broken STi: Let’s drive 19 hours to look at a broken Subaru

First of all who drives eight hours one way to see a broken Subaru STi? Driving that far to buy a common car like a 2006 Subaru WRX Sti is just silly without asking for 20+ pictures. This guy probably didn’t even tell the owner how far they were traveling in the first place.Of course this gets a lot better when the seller of the car comes and posts in the thread, because the owner of the STi is even a bigger idiot. So now it is time to diagnosis this shit show.

Scammer01

Considering all the kid did in the buyers opinion was waste his time the buyer should consider it a lesson learned on driving half way across the country to buy a broken Subaru STi.

Scammer03

 

Of course the comments come out of the woodwork.

Scammer05

So it looks like the seller and buyer originally agreed upon 12.9k and then the buyer offered 10k after seeing the STi in person. The owner declined. No where does the buyer say he told the seller how far he is traveling.

Scammer06

Well who the fuck has a motor that has 13k into it and not decide to part out the engine? With that much money the long block must be worth some cash along with the turbo and supporting mods on the STi. Time to call bullshit on the owner. The 13k if it ever happened as probably including the cost of the installation of everything from a shop that does Subaru STi’s.

Scammer07

 

So what’s the lesson here for everyone? Don’t drive across the country to buy a STi that you know if very very broken in the first place. There is such a thing called Caveat emptor or “buyer beware” for those that don’t know Latin. If you attempt to buy from a private buyer don’t expect the car to be in the best condition no matter what the seller says.

Lesson:

Don’t go 19 hours to buy a car from a kid with a Monster Energy Drink flat bill hat on, because he is probably a fucking moron.

Subaru owner gets into fights with his neighbor over his exhaust.

This guy is the reason why regular Subaru owners get dirty looks from regular people and the police.

Maybe this guy should tone down his “subie rumble!!!” when he is around his apartment complex. Nothing says douchebag Subaru owner then disturbing all your neighbors every time you leave or come home to your apartment. He’ll probably get pissed and wonder why the police start bothering him and giving him exhaust tickets. God forbid someone is sleeping from working third shift and gets woken up by this idiot. It’s all about him him him.

Nothing like telling everyone in the world that you are STI positive.

 

Why would anyone think it would be a good idea telling everyone in the world that you are positive for a STI.

According to Wikipedia:

Sexually transmitted infections (STI), also referred to as sexually transmitted diseases (STD) and venereal diseases (VD), are infections that are commonly spread by sex, especially vaginal intercourse, anal sex and oral sex. Most STIs initially do not cause symptoms.[1] This results in a greater risk of passing the disease on to others.[2]Symptoms and signs of disease may include vaginal discharge, penile discharge, ulcers on or around the genitals, andpelvic pain. STIs acquired before or during birth may result in poor outcomes for the baby. Some STIs may cause problems with the ability to get pregnant.[1]

I’m just really embarrassed to own a Subaru Impreza WRX STi at this point. Anyone that gets the joke would think it’s dumb anyways.

How to hydro-lock your Impreza

Sometimes not going through the gigantic puddle in a stock height Subaru Impreza 2.5RS is the smart thing to do.

This Subaru Impreza 2.5RS is now flooded and done for. Maybe a lifted 4×4 truck is what you should use if you want to go “mudding”.

How to wreck your AWD on a Subaru 101

The easiest way to destroy your differentials in your Subaru is to drive around on different sized tires. Most people recommend around 2/32 maximum tread difference between all four tires. A great way to have to replace all 3 differentials is to just 100+ miles on a tire that isn’t the same height as the rest of your tires.

This is why you carry a full spare or if you have to have a AAA membership.  I would be weary of driving 30 miles on a spare that I know is the correct size for the rest of the drives never mind 100+ miles.
