1980 Subaru Impreza Race Description

This is a rare WRX RA, 5th injector model, first year for these, hard to find. especially with just 48,000klm (30k miles) on it. This one gets even crazier. Please read it all, but please feel free to ask questions.Just had full service: new plugs, coils, oils (all) and filters changed and a full checkover.

Great bones to create a Time Attack winning car, hillclimb car, or kick ass autocross car.
My comments:Ive poured all over this thing and it got a few different things about it. This may well be a pre-production vehicle, it has the alloy hood on it, but the bolt holes dont meet factory Subaru hinges, we think it may be a pre-production alloy hood. Can share more details with any inquiries, please feel free to ask any question.
I just bedded the new brakes in yesterday at the track. I kept boost down to under 1 bar. What you do with it is up to you. But we did run it on the dyno using 110 gas and it pulled 344 hp atw. We didnt touch anything, it was only to get a perimeters check to make sure it's running ok. It is. I expected about 200 atw, it almost doubled that. IT kinda scared me so the lucky buyer should be a thorough Subaru enthusiast with good knowledge on these, or know a good Subaru shop. Im thinking it has built internals to pull that much power straight off the boat, literally.
Build a killer RallyX car and win a few championships. Comes with all Import paperwork.
