2004 WRX Wagon Resto Project - The Beginning

We purchased this 2004 WRX Wagon from a dealer and it was reported that it has some issues. A car with over 250,000 miles on the clock is bound to have some issues unless it was properly maintained. When we first took a look at it through some photos, we thought it was going to be rough. However, when we first saw it, we did find the rough spots from the advertised pictures, but then saw that much of the car was indeed in very good shape. So we decided to make an offer and some back and forth and here we are with a 2004 WRX Wagon in Java Black Pearl.

Some initial issues that we found upon initial inspection was that there was rod knock. and so the first thing this car is going to need is at very minimum a new Subaru EJ20 shortblock. However, we will know more once we go in to take a look at the internals of the engine. Now you may be asking, what are our plans with this car? Simple, we want to put it back into a very stock-like state and maybe give a little more power and handling to make it a fun car once again. We will go through the step by step process for restoring this car and making it road worthy once again.
