00MY is a sohc, any of the coupe spoilers will bolt on to the sedan. There are a few turbo kits you can buy. ludespeed, minama (sp?), cobb. aftermarket goodies, the vendor section of this board is a good place to look many of the vendors have their own site. Do a search and you can find tons of info to answer your questions.

yea, 99-01 RS's are SOHC, the 98's however were DOHC. do a search, youll fina a lot of stuff. the most reputable tuner for the RS is probly cobbtuning though..... www.cobbtuning.com , but theyre specialty is N/A. i believe the ludespeed is the most often bought tubo kit out there presently, but there are several others.

couple other links you might want to check out, for some real basic parts....

Please don't call the engine a "boxter." Aftermarket isn't really that great. I can't go to autozone or oreilly auto parts and get a set of spark plug wires. They have to be specially ordered. The spoiler off a coupe WILL fit on the sedan, that's what I have. The 2000 2.5 engine is SOHC.

The aftermarket for the 2.5RS is pretty extensive. Check out http://www.boxer4racing.com

Go to www.grassrootsmotorsports.com or call them and request the 2 (IIRC) months back issue. There is a great writeup of the 2.5RS model with some good detailed info on the car and model year differences.

Thumbs up

Here's another bb like this one, but focused soley on the 2.5RS: www.rs25.com Plenty of info there, and lots of people who know alot about the car (not saying nobody here does, just you don't have to wade through WRX stuff to find 2.5RS stuff!)

And for all the info you could possible want on the 2.5RS:
