If you don't mind me asking, how much did a salvage STi set you back?

If I told you, you would not believe me. Just know it was a super deal I could not pass up. Here is a pic of it before the dismantle...





It is fully rebuilt, titled, insured & drove great before we started pulling parts today. I would have to point damage out to you in person. All friends & family that have seen it think I am crazy for pulling it apart as it driver perfect with no leaks, noises, shakes but for the sake of the trans going into my XT.lol

I had thought about that but just wouldn't be fun in doing it. I have always wanted to do this to a car & part it out.

Car is super clean. RedBull is a must. Thank goodness for Costo!

HOLY CRAP, the pictures show it as flawless! I'm actually a little upset that you're taking it apart instead of selling it to me at your "unbelievable price" + $1500
