Hey guys i started out with a 96 legacy outback that my parents bought me for $700 and i cleaned it and fixed odds and ends and sold it for $2000 before i even got my license.

Bryton's 99 Subaru 2.5rs Outback

Then i bought my 99 jeep xj with the money, then worked and saved up all the money for a lift kit and rims and tires, i put a ruff country 4.5" long arm lift on it and 33" GoodYear Dura Trac tires on it i loved this thing i sold it because i couldn't afford the 11mpg

Then i sold it for $4200 and saved up some more money and bought my 99 Subaru 2.5rs 2 door coupe. All this before i was even 17. I paid $4900 for it about 6 mouths ago. it had 126650 miles when i bought it. The car had a 03 2.5 motor from an Impreza put in it. The car was pretty loaded pretty much every option besides leather seats witch was totally fine with me. The car came with an OEM front strut bar, Ebay UEl header, and Tuedo cat back exhaust. Also it was missing fog lights but i figure ill get covers. The Subaru is debaged of the truck also and came with a replica v6 wing that just needs painted

Kartboy lightweight crank pulley arrived today. I chose to go with the kartboy one cause its not as light as the others. And I didn't want it to throw codes cause of the light weight flywheel and crank pulley combo, i think i got a good combo a not super light crank pulley and a not super light flywheel but both dramatically lighter than stock ones. Kartboy Crank Pulley: 2.4 Pounds

SO i finally got tired of my crappy Wal Mart all seasons that are super hard that came with my car. So i started looking for tires and came across the Hancook Venus V12 ties for 400 shipped and an $80 rebate so i was like sweet $320 for a set up high performance summer tires. i started re searing on them and people have wrote good reviews on them so i bought them and will put them on in the spring. I bought them in the stock 205/55/16 size.

So since i had my fenders off i decided i would build some fender brace's since i can build them for free since my uncle can get me free steel. So i build these, they are made out of 1/8" plate and 7/8" round tubing. they are super beefy

I was wondering why this thing sounded so mean driving down the road. You got full headers and an exhaust. She already sounds wrx swapped. lol You did a fantastic job on the body work, very impressive. She is going to fly with that boost bra!
