Sure, you could buy yourself an STi Impreza, but where’s the fun in that? What about taking an all original, low-milage 1986 Subaru Leone, converted to AWD thanks to an XT6 (Vortex) donor, with an engine consisting of a builtÂ EJ22T bottom end andÂ STi Version 8 Type RA heads? Yeah, I’d choose the Leone too. The initial build is done and dusted quite quickly, but the car continues to evolve throughout the thread. Unfortunately it meets a guard rail towards the end, but is thankfully repaired swiftly and with OEM parts back to better than new condition.
Thanks to Rodd and Tom for both submitting separately. Click here for more Subaru builds.

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. The car is being built to be competitive on the circuit, while at the same time testing the reliability of the engine conversion for future public release.

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 Subaru WRX on the market due to recent unemployment, I felt compelled to help spread the word. So if anyone out in the U S of A is looking for a rexy (STi clone) then follow the link or click the pic for more information. http://houston-imports.com/forums/showthread.php?t=571261
Good luck Matt!
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 car by Team RD.
