818S, 818R, & 818C - What You Need

The key to the 818 concept of being able to complete the car for under $15,000 is to use as many parts from the donor car as possible. The parts needed from a Subaru Impreza model years 2002-2007 (except STI models**) include the following:

Here is the list of parts that you will need from your Subaru donor to build your 818:
• Front spindles with full brakes and front lower control arms
• Rear spindles with brakes and E-brake handle/cables
• Steering rack, tie rod ends, and upper steering column assembly
• Pedal box and throttle pedal
• Master cylinder and brake booster, and clutch master cylinder
• Engine with turbo and intercooler (if WRX model)
• Exhaust manifolds, O2 sensors, and down tube
• Transmission
• Rear lower control arms, toe links, and CV joints
• Front seats, front seat belts, and gauge pod
• Fuel pump and fuel level assemblies
• Radiator and fan
• Wheels and tires
• Door hinges, rear wwith latches, strikers, and inside door handles
• Side view mirrors, left and right
• Rear view mirror
• Rear seat belts
• ECU and wiring harness
• Front hood hinges

If you have purchased a donor car and are in the process of disassembling and prepping parts, it is important to save as many parts as possible. The following list are parts that you can definitely resell or discard as they are not needed.

2002-2007 Subaru Impreza/WRX parts NOT NEEDED:
• Main body shell (BUT save all bolt-on brackets and hinges)
• All window glass
• Headlights and tail lights
• Rear differential
• Driveshaft
• Headliner and interior pillar moldings
• Carpets
• Front and rear suspension cross-members
• Front struts and springs
• Rear struts and springs
• Rear seat cushion and back
• Spare tire
• Fuel tank shell (but keep for fittings and internals)
• Front Doors
• Air Bags
• Front Bumper and Sub-Frame

*STI’s drivetrain parts differ too much from a standard Imprezza or WRX for use as a single donor for the 818 platform.
