What I’m selling is an ’05 Subaru Baja automatic. It starts, runs, and drives well: but it leaks a little oil as most Subaru’s of its age do, and it has 271K miles on it. My plan was to swap the engine out of my ’02 WRX turbo into it as that car had body problems. What you see here is all the pieces that I have collected to perform the swap. It’s a project that I was really excited about as I love the Baja, and the WRX was amazingly fun to drive as it was putting 390 HP to the wheels on E85. I was also planning to do a manual swap at the same time, so I collected the appropriate pieces to do so.

About the Baja:
• Falken tires with about 75% life remaining
• New steering rack
• Ball joints replaced
• Front and rear sway bar links replaced
• Rear suspension replaced
• Driver side CV axle replaced
• Passenger rear wheel bearing replaced
• All brake pads and rotors replaced
• Front seats from ’02 WRX as I like them better (Original Baja seats included)
• Timing belt and water pump replaced within last 10k miles
• AC is cold, heater is hot
• Comes with tail gate extender
• Comes with roof rack
• Comes with set of 4 tire chains

About the swap parts:
• Fully built blueprint EJ205 (I chose the 2.0 to reduce the chance of cylinder warpage)
• Valve job recently done by Haas Machine Co ($1500 for the valve job alone)
• Head gaskets recently replaced with MLS
• All ARP case bolts, pins, head studs
• Wiseco pistons
• Manley rods
• BC stainless valves, springs, guides
• Parallel Agency power fuel rails
• Aeromotive FPR
• 1300cc DPI injectors recently cleaned and flow matched by WitchHunter
• TD05H-20G billet extended tip custom built turbo
• Full 3” exhaust and downpipe
• Cosmo R COPs
• New gates timing belt and water pump kit
• Aluminum intercooler piping
• Box of assorted silicone hoses (enough for 2 engines)
• HID headlight drivers
• New STI oil pan, and baffle installed on block
• Moroso oil pickup installed in block
• New plastic covers for timing belt
• Phenolic intake spacers
• Two silicone turbo inlets as the old Perrin one has a crack
• Intake and coolant tank powder coated wrinkle red
• Mishimoto aluminum radiator
• Large nameless intercooler
• Cobb tuner married to the WRX ECU (currently loaded with the E85 tune that was making 390 at wheels)
• Engine and body harness from the WRX
• 3.90 manual transmission from WRX
• 4.44 manual transmission from ’05 Forester with RA width gears
• 4.44 rear diff from same Forester
• MT Baja driveshaft
• MT Baja crossmember
• MT Baja gauge cluster
• MT Baja clutch pedal assembly
• MT Baja shifter and console trim
• WRX gauge cluster

Probably some other things that I can’t think of.

I’m open to offers, but I would really like to sell everything together and not part it out. As far as trades: I’m only interested in motorcycles. Text or email preferred. This would be an amazing car if someone had the time to complete it, I simply have too many projects right now.
