so we were able to get the engine, drive shaft, rear diff, and all the axles out. all of the axels came out fine except for one major PITA corner...i'm going to have to pick up another hub assembly.

where do you plan on mounting the turbo? The JDM configuration might not work so well with a EJ20?

glad there's room for that.

Are you going to bring this down to porkies once it's done so I can drool over it?

Wow. I have the same exact Impreza in a coupe and I'm trying to do the same thing. What do you have to do with the ECU to get it to pass inspection???? I dont know a lot about making a NA car into a turbo and when dealing with the ECU and inspection. I'm only 16 XD. I'd like to contact you on this for some information because my car like i said is the exact same year, model, and even color all down to everything but the 2dr.
