Them RB lumps are solid, mine was only the RB25det but for a 17 year old motor all it needed was some new coil packs :) The internals are also good for about 400-500bhp, just bolt on bigger turbos and up the boost and you're away. The impreza's unfortunately can't cope with that, same as the gearbox, very well made and very smooth workings again able to deal with upto 500bhp before they need uprating.

Don't get me wrong I love the impreza and what its good at, I just see differences between my R33 and the WRX :D

After a long morning at TD Racing, finally its all done. The decat and downpipe were a sod due to rusty bolts!
However the fuel pump went in without a problem.

Ended up going from a standard 220bhp to 285bhp with it being just shy of 210bhp at the wheels. This for what was quite a hot day is pretty good, and that larger top mount must have helped keep the intake temps down :)
All in all, Mark was impressed at the figures and I enjoyed the drive home!

Right.... So whats next on the list? Lol

At a loss now with the car... not sure what to do next! Was talking to the fella who mapped it and to gain extra power now it'd be costing me potentially more than it would to sell and just buy the Sti version. Although I doubt I'd buy an Sti, the money would end up buying a Skyline again I think. Do intend to take the Impreza to at least the sprint track at curborough this year.

Just in case anyone is interested I'm thinking of selling the car, I'm after more power and I'll likely be headed towards getting a Skyline again. I'm in no major rush to sell as obviously with the winter coming its the perfect motor to have!

Price is set at £4750 on the advert, but a sensible offer would likely take it.

Hehe you need a new sig mate... thats 2 cars behind now ;) Mark at TDR joked I should just go ahead with the bigger turbo idea instead... But think I'll just save up for when I get the next motor.
