Simple 2008 2.5i

Hello, this is my first post. I am still going through all of the old post to gather info. I'm not really into all of the fancy stuff. I bought a basic Impreza a few years ago because I simply wanted a CAR that could do what my old SUV was doing. I like to drive to distant locations to fish and kayak. I needed a car that can get through the muck! After owning my basic 2008 Impreza for 2 years I now want to get a little more power out of it. I don't want to drive at higher speeds than I do now but I would like a little more acceleration. What can I do that will not cost an arm and a leg?

As it being an N/A Naturaly Aspirated engine no turbo or super charger you not going to get any major sigificant gains from whatever you do you could upgrade the air filter and change the exhaust upgrade the leads and plugs and it will make a bit of difference but for more real power Id buy a WRX at the least and a treat and buy the STI

I've been looking for a better air filter for my impreza 09 non turbo, but i haven't find one yet, sellers say that there's no air filter for that model yet

Re: Simple 2008 2.5i

add a 0. in front of that, the non turbo engine don;t react very well at all to modding.

personaly i'd not even bother, you wont notice any difference what so ever, save your money and if you realy do want more power buy a wrx.
