Default LOL Talk about a Rigged Impreza!

So was looking on CL and come across this mess. Literally held together with zip ties. Still a impreza though...

Unless they switched the intake manifold, it's not a WRX.

Interesting idea, crap execution. The PVC charge piping is a nice touch.

That thing is horrendous, but you have to admire the guys spirit for trying it. I wouldn't, but then again, I prefer not to have people stare at me for the wrong reasons when I'm toodling around town in my econobox.

Yes, yes it is.

That is a thing of beauty. I also like the duct tape. I did notice he kept stressing, you could return it to stock and make a profit. I love it.

This was a huge build thread on RS25 by user "Spudchucker". That's an Eaton M90 roots blower from a Thunderbird. He never could get it running right, perhaps because his PCV lines were plumbed before the MAF sensor.

All of you guys criticizing probably don't have the balls to do anything like this. Significant shortcuts were taken, though...like PVC charge piping. It works, but it's low quality and might not hold up.

I understand how it could be frustrating. I just supercharged my Forester with an Eaton M62 roots blower. Tuning for this is tough, especially throttle tip-in with the MAF sensor being almost 8 feet further away from the intake manifold than it was in the stock location.

And "never revved over 3000 RPM"? Yeah, no. That's bull ****

This. "Blow a grand or so on oem parts - pure profit"

Reminds me of my brothers buddy Ricky Joe Davis Baugh. Not kidding.

The trash bags full of leaves and the moldy ass shop rag on the strut tower is a classic selling point and very well executed.

I understand that it's not executed perfectly but I still think it's pretty cool. Wise? No. Cheap? No. Would I do it. Depends on how much disposable income I have. It's pretty cool that someone did it though. I have respect for this guy, and his imagination haha.

That car is twice the performance vehicle that your '08 Minivan WRX will ever be. Ah, 2008. The year Subaru officially sold out to soccer moms.


The bait is set.
