Thanks Dave

Re: Impreza Turbo

all depends on what you buy,the current mods fitted or standard motor,also depends how big your bank balance is,once you start tweeking the hunger sets in,i know some owners who have thrown in excess of 40k at motors and still not got the desired ammount of power,its just not somet you can gauge

Re: Impreza Turbo

What i was getting at was what kind of gains would i be expecting, would the impreza Turbo still get the same type of gains as a WRX or Sti turbo?

Re: Impreza Turbo

yup with supporting mods,standard uk turbo 2000 with fuel pump and hight frolw airfilter will see between 240/260 bhp...uk WRK bug/blobs run roughly 218 bhp same as the turbo 2000,unless fitted with a PPP then will be within the above figures..

Re: Impreza Turbo
