What is this?

So I've seen this bad Larry floating around the Internet for a few weeks, but I can't seem to figure out what it is. I can tell its a subie, but what engine setup are they running? It almost seems to be a twin turbo setup with a supercharger on the right hand side?

Really? That makes me sad. That looks like it would have been epic.
Even with photoshop, any idea what engine that is?

Thanks boo-key! I wasn't sure what that was in the right hand side.
Could a 2jz swap be done on a wrx?

:eek: Well, to say "no" would not necessarily be appropriate, given how your question was worded.

Haha sleepr, I know anything can be done with enough time and money. But would it actually work better than modifying the beautiful boxer engine it came with?

Not feasible unless one wants to spend years doing fabrication and structural modification in my opinion. It would be an amazing feat though...
