welcome to the site! You should list your mods in your profile. I'm curious what's under that old hood!

Welcome Eric, I'd also be interested to see some jdm power under there.

What's up? What kind of driving do you do?

Welcome to the site, nice looking car. Im interested in the underhood goodies also.

I've also always loved the GC bodystyle, i guess i'm a old school lovin guy... I know a guy that has a dark blue 2.5rs 4 door, looks kinda like yours, but not really at the same time, but anyways, he has a turbokit in the 2.5rs, says he is boosting over 400whp at like 20psi... Is your's a 2.5rs or just the impreza 1.8? And most importantly, is it awd or just fwd?????

Welcome to the party!

Welcome Eric, I want to see more pictures of your "sweet ass gray" interior. :D

GC-2nr 06-13-2008 09:56 AM

its actually an AWD ej22 n/a, engine has got a Borla unequal length, single-port header, new o.e. converter, 3A-Racing catback, COBB crank pulley, custom SRI

suspension has COBB rear sway bar+links, Whiteline front sway bar+links, Ractive upper strut braces front and rear, CM drop springs w/Gabriel struts

wanted to boost the original ej22ez, but it would be alot of work/money, so im planning on swapping in ver5 sti engine/tranny sometime next year, currently working on some jdm body componets

the car is my daily driver, and trust me i was being sarcastic about the "sweet ass gray interior", its totally stock inside other than a short shifter. i want to swap in RS seats, dash and door cards soon.

Sounds like you put good thought into the mods so far. The mods sound nice and the car does look clean. Keep us updated as things roll along.

probaly IHI stock or td040/41 to start, but i've been looking at some really nice, high dollar ones too, Perrin GT3071R kit and also the APS SR56, probably have to sell my house to afford those !Cry!

Longshot 06-18-2008 11:46 AM

^ haha going rotated would give you some rediculous hp, If i were you though I'd go with a bolt on 20G (not sure about your power goals) that way you'll have a well over 300 to the wheels easy.

GC-2nr 06-18-2008 12:34 PM

i found some pretty affordable 16/20g turbo's on ebay, td05/06 and some Garret's that were sorta pricey, what can you tell me about this turbo:
