Good morning! I'm selling my EJ207 (Spec C) 1998 Subaru Forester. Clean Oregon title in my name. Car is located in Virginia Beach, VA.
This car is far from perfect, but I think the price is good for what it is. I simply need to get down to one car. I'll be retiring soon and moving back across the country...I'd rather have the money than the extra car. I'm motivated to sell, but I'm also neither insane, nor homeless. Please text or call, as I don't intend to get on NASIOC terribly often to reply to messages.
I purchased this car about a year ago with the motor and transmission swapped in. All I'm certain of with regards to the motor and tranny are the specs of the motor. This is a 5 speed transmission with a solid clutch and it shifts and drives like OEM. The motor was swapped in by a Mazda technician, over the period of several months. All of the workmanship seems to be good. I'm able to attest better to the work that's been done since I owned the car, but as you can see it's been inspected and serviced by several reputable Subaru shops since I have owned it.
On the car when I bought it:
Engine and transmission swap. I'm not sure what clutch was installed but it feels good. Not too stiff, and NO SLIPPING!
Wiring swap merge by iWire
Blitz intake
Full custom 3" exhaust
Fujitsubo catback
JVC DVD head unit
JDM Version 7 WRX seats
Shortly after purchasing I had the following work done:
Mishimoto radiator
Gates Timing belt and components
Subaru Water pump
Coolant service
I have the OEM belt and components/water pump. You can see they look nearly BRAND NEW! This motor was treated very well.
