    So basically a Legacy with WRX powertrain. Absolutely love the car, and I shouldn't really be too surprised - I learned after buying it that the previous owner did NOT take very good care of it. The current engine could potentially be saved, but it also burned a fair bit of oil, so I'm just going to spend a bit extra and put an IAG forged shortblock. It's gonna sting, and I'll probably be about $3500 - $4000 into getting it back together (I already had a turbo and a bunch of other goodies for it), after which it will be making a fairly reliable 375-400hp on E85 (basically just going to max out a VF52 on E85).
