Default 2.0 and 2.5

I have a 2013 Impreza Sport, and there are no aftermarket performance parts to be found. Is it possible to put parts i.e, intake, for a 2.5 onto a 2.0 engine if is for the same year.

For example, if I find a intake for a 2013 wrx 2.5l could I buy it and instal it onto a 2013 sport 2.0l?

Many have said the intake for these cars is excellent. You will not be adding horsepower by swapping.

Best performance mod is to upgrade to the 19mm STi rsb. Check out the 2012-13 threads for some other ideas, but as far as engine performance theres not much.

Try for better tires, suspension, and visual mods. Its just not a performance car.

A WRX intake of any year will not work what-so-ever.

I agree with the above... suspension, brakes. And no, you don't need to slam it to the ground or make it uncomfortable. Swaybars, brakes, maybe exhaust are a nice starting point for NA Subarus.

Also keep in mind, even if you were to add an intake, any engine related warranty claims would most likely be denied.

Very true. Now with everything said how different are the body styles between a na impreza and wrx impreza of the same year?

Probably nothing intake related for the 2.0i. Turbos are always setup completely different than NA with intakes.

So, a cf hood for a 13 wrx and 13 sport would not line up? Anyone local near Lebanon, Pa with a wrx cf hood wanna do a "test fit"? Ha ha

The body style of the NAs diverged completely from wrx after 2011. It would only fit if you had a 08-11 impreza.
