 2002 Subaru Impreza 2.5 TS
5MT
 
 Bought her as a mechanics special out of a Subaru dealership in Utah.  Drove her back to Idaho, some coolant smell and had an oil drip halfway home.  Cound't find the oil leak or any coolant leak.  Continued on and managed 25mpg.  
It has been serviced around 110,132 miles and new tires around 99k
 What we know so far after doing a full inspection.  The leaking seemed to be from the grease flung out from the ripped CV boot.  So far to be fixed is;
1.  Spark plugs and wires needed
2.  Driver front CV shot
3.  Driver side steering bellow shot
4. Ball joints shot
5. Outer tie-rod ends shot
6. Leaking valve cover gaskets
7. PCV in bad shape
8. Air filter needs to be replaced.
 Will be changing the rear diff, transmission and engine oil and filter over to AMSOIL before I race her. 
 Will also need to fix all the other stuff listed.  Have some long-term items as well.  Shocks/strut kits.  Pull out the interior and clean it.

2004 Subaru Legacy
35th Anniversary

My daily driver, bought with 68k miles on it, just hit 149k miles.

Changed transmission and differentials over to AMSOIL Gear Lube at 82k miles
Running an unequal length header, the rest is stock.

EBC UPR front brakes rotors
NGK spark plugs and spark plug wires

Added the Run-Cool hood vents in May 2016 to help with a heat issue in Nevada. It didn't overheat but would have some hesitation issues. Seemed to have addressed that issue, and the cabin doesn't get as hot anymore as well.
Running awesome and gets 27mpg combined. It now has over 150k miles.
