Forester or Impreza?

Basically I'm 21 I currently have a Saxo VTS and looking to get a scooby. I can only afford to insure the 2.0L without a turbo for either the Forester or Impreza. So wat I want to know is how much more power will i get from either if I put induction kit, de cat exhaust and chip it? As I would like to have a bigger car but still want some good power under the hood :p Also does the extra weight of a forester make that much difference as I would prefer a Forester for the off roading part but if it will be much lumpier and slower than the Impreza then I'd rather get an Impreza! Any pros and cons of both would be appreciated.

Sorry for long winded post hopefully I got my point across. Oh and I'm looking at a pre 2000 ish model of either.

Thanks

Re: Forester or Impreza?

choice is yours fella,breath the engine with a high flow panel filter,headers,decat,etc,no point "chipping"...remap is what will be needed,but that can only be done on certain motors,fozzy is a capable light off road motor,you will struggle to get it green laneing..

power to weight is key if your after speed, so the Fozzy wont be helped if its heavier.
