Tenchu's RHD Impreza build thread

In June of 2009 I picked up this as a project. It was already setup really well, but a lot of things I want to change, or need to be upgraded. I'll update as I go along, with parts as I receive and install, pictures of installs, pictures from track events and meets, & reviews of parts installed. Here is the mod list, updated as it goes.
