The Most Badass Impreza, the

For those of you who haven’t heard of Novak, here’s a quick and breakdown. He is a hard-core automotive who spends the majority of his life just two things: building time-… cars and drinking A lot of the time the two occur simultaneously-although, he is quite good at drinking while drinking beer.

though, I’m beginning to from the reason why we are here, and is the super sick Subaru GC8 you see you.

Before I get into this though, let me take a moment to with those who are unfamiliar Ryan what he’s and what those vehicles accomplished. He owned a ’01 S2000 that was featured in by our sister publication, Honda . when it was equipped with Racing aero and ITBs. He had a ’96 Japanese Honda Type R that was also in HT in 2010, and he still has a K-Series-powered U.S.

Civic hatchback that was in HT 2011. Oh, and that ’01 was rebuilt to a Garrett turbo-powered, track car that was featured by HT in 2011. Now, for all of the Honda out there getting agitated, no mistake about it, these not show cars. Ryan every single one of them, and single one of them was damn

The S2000 ran a 1:53 at Buttonwillow on and the ’96 Civic ran a 1:58 on street tires. Yea, a FF on street tires ran a 1:58 at If that doesn’t impress go away.

So what made decide to utilize a Subaru GC8 this time around? I a GC8 for the longest time. I used to a ’05 STI that I tracked in 2006 and 2007. I missed the AWD so I figured if I was going to do another one I start off with the lightest of the WRX And you don’t see many GC8s in the States, he says.

So, with his mind made up, set out to find a chassis to begin I was looking for one for quite a while I saw a well-known one for sale by Dave aka MannSlayer. Seeing the parts were on the car and knowing that build had a huge following, saw the potential to part it out and use those to build the car the way he wanted.

Offering one of his retired race as a straight trade, the two talked it exchanged pictures and emails, and a deal. Just two weeks Mann drove all the way from to drop off the GC8 and pick up the S2000. Mann arrived Ryan the car over and realized that he had more work ahead he realized. When it showed up I was slapping myself in the face-the car was so But Ryan didn’t allow the surprise to deter him.

I had a plan and was going for it, he says.
