Now I'm gonna put the cat among the pigeons
Subaru is one of the only makes (here in uk and USA)
We're when you mention modding a whole group of people pop up and say
Oh you must do this or it will blow up or don't do that it will break
I hate to say it but they are not super fine race engines , they are a 2.0 turbocharged flat 4 , nothing special at all
Now I've been messing with turbo cars since very early 90,s
Rs turbo, sierra cosworth , escort cosworth and in later years Mitsubishi evo
And never have I blown one ! And a couple of those were running 400hp
I think the trouble with imprezas is they are now cheap and some folks just chuck bits on wind up the boost and bang ,
Could someone explain what makes Subaru people hop and jump around and live in constant fear of a blow up
They are no different to the cars mentioned above only they have the benefit of a far superior ecu which makes life a hell of a lot safer and easier ?
