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.

Had a rather crazy weekend.
-Ran over screw and needed to get tires replaced (went with 225/40)
-Got professional buff and compound wax (for a steal of a price)
-Installed coilovers
-During install realized I had a very bad wheel bearing but got over half off through a hookup at a Big O as I did not have the tools to do it
-CUSCC car show (Colorado University Sports Car Club) where there was over 2,000 cars


Pics of the new height setup will be coming up soon but I did snag a pic of the engine bay when she got all cleaned up.

Hopefully will be getting the intercooler on soon now that school is over

I didn't realize you're from Colorado, that's awesome!!! Super unique setup man, I've never hear of or seen a supercharged Subaru.

Love this, I want to put the Raptor kit on my 2.5i. I feel like an SC'd subie is just the right thing.

Raptor is an Austrialian company, and they are very pricey for very minimal gain. However it's a very unique mod and with a built motor they can make more than sti-ish power. Plus on an auto-x course these cars would be unstoppable.

I bought it through raptor, but there is a US dealer in Washington, but I cannot remember his name...

I wouldnt say $3k for the kit shipped is pricey... Have you seen what the prices are of kits that go on camaros or mustangs? I also would not say a 60% increase in power is minimal gain. It is low compared to sti but a 10k difference in vehicle price doesn't make it that big of a deal. I'm looking forward to seeing what a high compression e85 build with their bigger supercharger will put down. I would think it would make real good power(350-400?) but it has never been done so we shall see. I'll hopefully be getting to the auto x coarse soon.

Living in the small town I do, I recieved a carbon fiber trunk(at zero cost ) a few months ago from a guy that used to own a beast hawkeye sti. He sold it for an evo mr and waved me down one day on my way to work. Needless to say, when I asked how much he wanted for it he said I could just take it as it had been sitting in his garage for almost two years just taking up space. It took some sanding down and work on the screw holes, but I finally had the time to fix it up and put it on. Let me say she looks d*** good!

Went to the drag strip (Bandimere) on Sunday for a car show and took two passes. When I dropped the clutch (~4500) the clutch slipped a good bit and netted me a 16.3 with a 2.5 60' . Looks like a new clutch will be needed pretty soon.

Still havent put the intercooler on yet either so after new clutch and Intercooler and clutch I'll head back and see if I can break 15 seconds.

Long overdue update: I was in an accident driving in the mountains this last winter. The car was considered totaled, but I bought it back and put it back together with some better parts and made a little money on top. She is back on the road (arguably better than ever) with the inter cooler finally installed, the wiring for random accessories I have organized, and the summer wheels fixed.
Recently added (with pics to come):
Frozen boost a/w intercooler
Carbon hood dampers
Mishimoto aluminum radiator
Fully blacked out headlights
Demon Eyes
Wrx Hood
