Yeah I've been trying to find one for a couple of months now. Lmfao. I have a nissan 240 right now, but if I can get my hands on a 94 Impreza I'll jump on it and simply swap the motor and body parts and make my home made RS >>;

people have made the camry/corolla look like a Subaru a few times, the 3rd gens on camry's not sure if same on corolla.

pretty impressive too.

3sgte?(was that it?) swap, and just get the (Subaru) oem spoiler, rims, etc.

What the bloody hell?!?! I've been missing out on all this since my computer failed me?!?!


1998 was the first year of the 2.5RS. It came with a 2.5L DOHC naturally aspirated Subaru boxer engine. Unfortunately, this DOHC NA engine (designated engine code EJ25D) has head gasket issues due to the bad factory head gasket. It shares the same engine, transmission, and brakes with the Legacy GT and Legacy Outback (years 97-99). Unfortunately, my car also has this engine. The gasket did fail. However, the genuine Subaru replacement gasket is NOT the same as the inferior one from the factory. In addition, Subaru launched a special campaign to combat the leaking cooling system with what they called the "Subaru Cooling System Conditioner". It is said that this fluid (intended to be injected directly into the radiator) helps seal any leaks in the cooling system.

You can tell if a 2.5RS is a '98 model from the outside if it has the small fog lights (unlike the oversized fog lights on the '99 and '00) and/or the optional gold 5-spoke wheels available only for that year. '99 and '00 were the ones with the gigantic fog lights and the revised SOHC engine which produced the same power and torque figures as the engine it replaces. '99 and '00 were not available with the gold 5-spoke wheel option that the '98 had from the factory/dealership.


Although most 2.5RSs are in 2-door coupe form, 4-door sedans were sold and do exist. The worst part is that automatic 2.5RSs were also available, unfortunately.


After those years, GD/GF chassis 2.5RSs are simply the predecessors of the current 2.5i trim level. They're not as special as the GC Impreza 2.5RS
