Thumbs up Cobb Tuning Supercharger Kit 2.5RS+

Feel free to give us updates here when your bored

I was considering a WRX EJ20 swap, or a Aftermarket Turbo setup, but the moment I heard Cobb is working on a supercharger kit, well enough said.

I know you guys are aware we are patiently waiting for this, but just want to express our appreciation that your still develpoing for the Ej25 platform. Afterall, our cars are almost paid for

May your many long hours of R&D be fruitful**.
**Whether it be a Supercharger kit, A new intake manifold, or some new headers

Cheers,

Chris

And you are right. It will be intersting to see what this setup will do. I'm also glad to see company's taking on the aftermarket for the EJ25 powerplant.

I don't know any more information about what is seen in these pictures, other than, it is a Southern California car, and that kit looks awesome!






Does anyone know more about who's car this belongs to and what brand of SC that is?

Thanks!

So, those pics aren't of Cobb's setup? Just a modded Rimmer? Anyone have pics of the Cobb s/c?

That's cool and all. I like the idea of an easier install than a turbo or engine swap, plus its cheaper.

But they're goin' for torque instead of top end and the RS engine's already got impressive torque plus a rather weak transmission. I'd rather have something to round out its power output by improving the top end a bit.

Though I'm sure Cobb's setup will be excellent, I'm still on the fence. Also, since I've got the red-headed step child '99 RS, that means an even loooonger wait, as usual. I don't know if I could hold out. Though that price point makes it a lot closer to doing than an engine swap.

Default COBBS S/C

No doubt the COBB s/c will be first class in quality and output I am sure.

From what I was told, they are shooting for 220hp (I am pretty sure that is at the crank and is at a relatively low boost as well and w/o any mods).

So all the 2.5 owners will have something to look forward to!

And although I don't have a Suby yet...I am looking towards a new Wagon GT but I will not buy it unless I can get that bhp towards 220 or so.

So thanks COBB

I think they were making it first for the Legacy's, but am not positive.

Sounds great... Anyone have a clue on cost? More or less than the LUDESPEED kit?

I presume the hood for MY00+ Legacys will have to be modded for the TMIC...

220hp sounds perfect for the engine since that would give you WRX level and yet not be too big a strain on the tranny. Does the fact that the HP level is not too extreme mean that engine management system is not necessary? Can the 2.5 be chipped?

Thanks.

That's almost a good thing. You dont have to redline to get nice power. I find my car is quicker if I shift earlier, @5krpm. It's a blast driving aronud town... near instant boost, and at cruising rpm's!
But I have a 1st gen Rimmer... so I can't speak for Cobb. I'm sure whatever they cook up will outperform my setup by far. Hell I'm not even intercooled.

I wonder what compressor they'll use... Eaton, Autorotor, Vortech, Rotrex. Personally I'd like to see a Rotrex. Very high efficiency in a really small package. Although the first 2 will produce power faster. hm!

Here are the details I picked out the conversation on the cobb discussion:

Cobb is using a Roots style twin screw supercharger. (Eaton?)
Cobb's SC kit will require replacing the intake manifold.
The kit most likely be running 3-5 psi.
There may or may not be an intercooler built in.
The kit will work with a cobb CAI.
The kit will cost ~$3000.
The kit will come with everything you need to run it.
There may be upgrade "stages" in the future.
The kit should be released late this year.

All of this information is still up in the air, since they are still in R&D. There are no pictures yet.

I wonder if they're trying to market the supercharger setup used on the ST-X concept. That'd be awesome.
