Saabaru with TX plates spotted at my local shop (So Cal)

Like the titles says, I was over at my local shop (Garage tuning) talking about some work I want to get done and I spotted a black saabaru with texas plates sitting there. I was black with prodrive wheels, a stealthy front mount intercooler, a weird spoiler on the rear hatch under the window (not so stealthy), and it was rocking a linear hood and 2.5i badging and a 4EAT hmm .
The owner of the shop said that he had built the engine a while back but the owner had it tuned by a different shop in AZ or TX and the engine had blow'd up  sadbanana

Just wondering if the owner of the car is a member here? Or if anyone has heard of a car like that one

Probably Aggie's. Cobb is using it as a fleet loaner IIRC.

Meh. Prodrive GT1. Weak sizing, and they rub STi brembo calipers, even with the recommended offset. biggrin Too many spokes for me.
