’91 Subaru Legacy RS Type RA

LegacyRA

While this build itself is very impressive and highly detailed, it’s the other automotive work that the owner partakes in that will really pique your interest. His car of choice is a 1991 Subaru Legacy RS, a love affair that started while serving an apprenticeship with Subaru, working on race and rally cars for Possum […]

Diesel GC8 Subaru WRX

Diesel22B

Talk about thinking outside the square. If you bought yourself a dead-stock GC8 Subaru Impreza to attack Pikes Peak, what engine choice would you go for? A single turbo EJ20 as found in the WRX? Or maybe the twin turbo version from a JDM Legacy? Perhaps you’d be more inclined to go for the bigger […]

Another WRX powered Porsche 914?

20

You might recall in July of last year I featured a tube framed Porsche 914 with a WRX engine transplant. While title of this post may have you thinking this is a similar build, they’re actually quite different. This particular car starts out as an already competent Auto-X car, with the owner, Britain, wanting to […]

A very thorough ground-up restoration of a very rare car, a 1970 Subaru FF-1. Enjoy. Thanks to Stephen for submitting.

WRX-powered tube-framed Porsche 914

It wasn’t that long ago that I featured another Porsche with a Subaru engine swap, but while the titles may seem similar at first glance, they are two completely different cars. Here we have a Porsche 914 with a Subuaru WRX engine swap, and while that might seem interesting enough on it’s own, this car […]

Subaru powered Porsche Boxster

EJ255-Boxster

Following-on from the last build, here’s another Subaru powered build for your reading pleasure. The only difference is this time the turbocharged flat-4 isn’t sitting in the front of another Impreza, it’s in the back of a Porsche Boxster. This Boxster was bought with a blown motor, so the swap was intended from the get-go. […]

Baja 1000 Subaru WRX

Who’s up for some hot ‘n’ heavy fabrication action? Geoff emailed me a link to a Subaru Impreza being transformed into an off-road racer capable of completing the Baja 1000. The build isn’t even finished yet but it still commands a feature simply for the quantity of work being applied to it. The amount of […]

Mini + Impreza WRC builds – Autos in HD

If you’re anything like me (which, if you’re reading this, you probably are), then you love watching car videos online. The only annoying thing is trying to find them, because let’s face it, navigating YouTube can get tiring after a while, there’s only so many times I can handle watching videos that are NOTHING like […]

Help a brother out…

Matt Lindsey aka Cereal has been one of (if not the) best submitters on Build Threads. If it wasn’t for the people who email me the builds they find, this site wouldn’t be what it is today, and Matt constantly comes up with the goods. When I heard that he had to put his ’05 […]

Team RD GC8 WRX STi Race Car

A number of people have been submitting build threads recently which is always encouraged. I’ve got a few features in the works for you guys, plus some builds that I’m holding off from posting until they progress a bit further. Thanks to Joshua for submitting this one, an in-depth build of a GC8 WRX race […]
