Post I just realized I need about 200 more hp and 2 more gears

My friend has this 3 acre open wide space. So I ran my car in the 6 inch sand/soft dirt with bald tires. The car would bog down in second gear, and first was too short. The car is an auto. I'm amazed subie gal was even able to rally her legacy auto. I need more hp!!

An auto L does just fine too.

My friend Kris (Webkris) used to rally/autocross his all the time and he never really had any issues..
his was a 2.2L auto just like yours..

given he's got a 5spd WRX sedan now.. so I guess he did agree with you to an extent.

but he used to do quite well racing the slushbox L

You don't have to give up dirt just because you lower it. I haven't! You just have to spend more time cleaning the off the bottom. Make sure you hit the struts. They can hold a lot of dirt in the spring perch.
