2008 Subaru Impreza STI
Ashleigh’s Pink Spec C Swap
This car came in with a blown engine (piston with a large hole on top), having been running at 1.9 bar of boost, which it didn’t handle too well.
We replaced the bottom end with one from a Spec C (2.0L), then overhauled the heads (2.5L) and did everything needed for the engine swap.
We finally remapped the ECU and gave it a thorough road test. It’s absolutely outstanding to drive. Along the way we also turned an ordinary looking engine into this gorgeous pink beast at Ashleigh’s request. It now drives as good as it looks.
