SR20DET Powered: 1997 Subaru Impreza GC8

This next car comes as a tip from Art C who writes: Haha, a Nibaru? Sussan? Any way you put it, I bet it’ll be fast and very sideways with a  little work. Assume around 275whp with the SR20 at reasonable boost levels, and about 2700 lbs on the GC8 with the AWD hardware removed, and probably pretty close to 50/50 weight distribution and you have a nice track toy. Find this 1997 Subaru Impreza offered for $5000 in Hartford, CT via craigslist.

Please read entire post before contacting, I am selling a 97 Subaru Impreza with a Nissan SR20DET motor in it. The motor was fully stripped, cleaned and re-assembled so there are no mechanical issues at all with it. It is not all wheel drive any more, only rear wheel and I have a full list of the parts that are in it:



Wiring Specialties Pro Harness

Speed Hut Guages

AEM Tru boost and A/F

Drive Shaft Shop 1000hp rear axles

Drive Shaft Shop 600hp drive shaft

05 Subaru STI R180 rear diff

ARP head studs

Tomei exhaust manifold

Stock turbo 

800cc fuel injectors (with paperwork)

BEE-R rev limiter

Stage 2 clutch

And more.



All parts were bought from Enjuku Racing and 240sxmotoring. I also have a 10 point roll cage, rear knuckles for disc and pad conversion and the head for a VVL swap. The car only needs a little more wiring for some guages and fans and rear brake lines (the rubber hoses not metal) and that’s it. The car DOES RUN and the tune is paid for just needs to be finished.
