Readers of the magazine had to know it was only a matter of time before we picked up our first project car. In the original magazine Ryan built up a 2005 2.5RS into the “Zero to Hero” track master, pumped up a 2007 Legacy GT into an unstoppable force of nature (with something like 300hp at the wheels, which was pretty impressive at the time), and Travis did some really naughty things to a first-gen Impreza wagon. We’re just going to ignore the SEMA Legacy project. That one didn’t end well, and we’re wiser for it.
Today I’m happy to announce that we’ve acquired our first new project car in 5 years, and it’s probably not what you expected. This bad-boy is a completely stock 1991 Legacy sedan “Craigslist Special” with 250,000 miles on a worn-out 2.2-liter N/A engine. It’s also silver, just like every other car Ryan has built. On the upside, it’s a sedan and it has what appears to be a decent 5-speed manual.
It may not be much to look at, but don’t worry, it’s not going to stay stock for long, Ryan has big plans. So stay tuned and see what happens. New episodes of Subiesport kick off with the Rally School episode once Launch Control wraps its full season at the end of October (13 episodes.)
