Default Twin Turbo on the RS

Hi everyone,

I have visited this wonderful website before just for random information but I have finally registered.

My brother has a '02 Impreza RS and we plan on trying to sticking in a TT on the boxer. Has anyone tried this before?

I would think this may actually be a better idea than a single Turbo due to the engine layout.

Any words of wisdom will be appreciated

Also, does anyone have the WRX engine scheme handy?
I would like to have a look at it.

Thanks a bunch!

Igor

Welcome to our happy little corner of the net. There is a BIG fridge in the
corner with just about anything you can think of in it...help yourself...of
course only take what you can LEGEALLY have. :{D

make yourself at home on one of the big fluffy couches, kick your shoes off,
put your feet up on one of the tables....and take it easy.

oh...btw....every once in a while a food fight breaks out...so you may not
want to wear nice clothes here.

Welcome!!

kastle: thanks for the links; I spent about 2 hours last night reading/searching different things here on the board. Somehow decided to be lazy today

Tom, I am not sure if I should actually sit on the couch and take my shoes off or RUN AWAY. [your welcome is creepy]

a bi turbo idea or twin turbo would be an intresting way to go. but, remember the single turbo guys are even having a hard time keeping there trans in one piece. Good luck, welcome to the club and there is a wealth of knolodge here, you just got to learn how to tap it. Welcome.

Interesting, their, knowledge. Must be this damn detroit air huh? How long you gonna be up here for Neal? Anyways sorry to get off topic. Bi turbo would be a good way to reduce Lag ( One big one little) Or create monster power. The concensus seems to be that one turbo is more than enough though. Also it depends on what you want to do. And what car you are building up. If you are building a race only vehicle why not run a 2.5 litre engine Monster turbo with a FMIC a N2O sprayer and anti lag
Or you could just do a motor swap Come to the dark side

I was just looking through E-bay and there was an engine from a Japanese WRX. Aparently they had a stock model with twin turbos and 280Hp. It had 30k miles and was going for $1350. It wouldn't be street legal and I'm sure your real concerned about that ...

Tuxedokid: Twin turbo only came on the Legacy. It will not fit an Impreza without Major modifications due to the placement of the steering rack.

Matrix Eng. did a twin turbo RS, they placed the turbo'd way down low in front. If you did a search, that post probably came up, but I've taken the pictures down since then.

Also here in Japan some company did a Twin Turbo'd, Twin IC'd Legacy with a 2.5L motor. So it can be done...

with enough money ANYTHING can be done, the problem is that here in the US the steering shaft is on the wrong side of the car to make it work easily.
