Default Supercharged Subaru

Here is Eleanor. 2007 2.5i, UGM, and about to hit 100k

I got her bone stock four years ago with 40k miles. As it has happened to many others, one part led to another, and next thing you know I end up with a significant amount invested. When it came to having a decent amount of power for my elevation (6,800 ft) , I was left with two options. 1) Boost the car when there are not many boosted 2.5's out there, or 2) Bring car back to stock and sell it to purchase a wrx. I gladly went with option one. I babied the car since I got it, I didn't want to worry about a wrx that may have been driven badly, and I like to do things a little different.

This all brought me to the Raptor supercharger kit that I had been looking into two years before purchasing. It would be easy on the transmission and clutch (linear boost) and would still drive like an n/a. I have had this kit on my car for the last year and a half and have had zero issues with it.

I love how it sounds, It looks really good, and it is a bit surprising when I tell people about it. As far as the future goes, I will look into building a 257 with Raptors' bigger supercharger, or maybe relocating the battery to the trunk and add a second to the engine bay (as long as there is room).

I have enjoyed doing all the work on my car either by myself, or with the help of friends, I can feel the clutch is getting worn out, but It should last long enough for me to do some reasearch and order a clutch that will suit the cars needs.

Here is how she was last fall, Winter mode will be over soon...

Here is the Dyno compared to stock 2.5i. *This is non inter cooled on 91. Seeing ~100 *c at intake so when the intercooler gets on I should be seeing 20-30 more hp/tq. Again this is at 6k+ ft

I have a few projects to tackle when I make the switch to summer mode, and I will keep you updated. Thanks!

I've been eyeballing a SC setup for a good long while. Curious about supporting mods and tuning.

Supporting mods- Fuel pump, Injectors, and spark plugs

As far as tuning goes, romraider has the map for an opensource tune. I can check with the tuner (Nick at Mac Autosport) to double check but she runs really good.

I will also upload the dyno to first post soon

Looks nice! Any ballpark numbers you are putting down? Relative quickness compared to wrx or Sti?

woul;d like to see you get it to 250 to 300 WHP. I know its hard at your elevation though. I think with some Cams and decent intake and exhaust. It should be doable. Intercooler will DEFINITELY have significant gains....were you thinking air to air or air to water?

Would love to see more engine bay picks. Was this a kit made specifically for N/A Subarus, or a universal kit you adapted?

Nice build.

I would love to be 250-300. I might be going e85 this fall, so it should be close that with e85 and an intercooler. I'm also thinking about saving that money money up for a high compression build. I have seen that high compression does not normally help out much with subaru motors, but someone in a Colorado subaru club built up his wrx to 10.5:1 so I will be giving him a chat. It will be air to water intercooler. I was looking to swap hood for a long time and never had any luck.
