Talking Project n/a rx impreza

Hey guys, newbie to the forum,
I just moved to qld and found out I'm not aloud to drive a turbo anymore
I'm looking at building a rx. What work have you heard of that puts a little more rumble behind my little toy? ATM I just have a air intake, exhaust, coil overs, dropped but I want more... Is it worth port and polish or can you recommend a cam or anything. I'm use to driving a 326kw sr20 , currently have my grandma telling me that my car is slow

Re: Project n/a rx impreza

2 years, I have my restrictions,
Would a new ecu like a apexi power fc or microtech and a good tune help out much? Or is that something more for turbos?
Or can anyone suggest if a cam or porting will be worth my money or not?
I am aiming for some decent figures from a na and decideing if a skooby will be the right choice
And just on the other side of things where can I but a good body kit for a impreza rx from? Or is anyone here selling ?

Re: Project n/a rx impreza

you can do those things but you'll pay alot of money and get very few gains, if you plan to get a turbo as soon as you can i'd save p rather than spend

Re: Project n/a rx impreza

why not stick to the car you have, pay lower insurance as its not modified and treat yourself to a few driver days to keep your hand in.
