ok ive got some questions on some of their parts...


Computer Upgrade
93TC3--$250--This non-adjustable chip rids you of the high speed fuel cut. It also adds more timing and fuel in the midrange and top end. All that and no check engine light! There is a slight decrease in gas mileage, and you have to use high octane gas...but there's 10+hp and 10+ ft/;lbs to be gained. Available for all 93-01 Subaru vehicles.


Short throw Shifter
STS--$90--Our short throw shifter is made for all 5-speed manual Subarus 93-01. Get a quicker, more concise feel with our shifter. Combine this with an STI shift linkage and you'll get approximately 1 inch of travel between shifts! This means power gets back to the ground quicker, and you waste less energy rolling between shifts.

try a search on torque chip.
Some people swear by them, some other think it is snake oil.
They frequently come up for sale on the board, you might wait for one.
The shift linkage is differnent on non-RSs. The lever on a RS will work with some other units. I have an RS lever in my 97L. Not sure if their product will work. Perhaps they have differnent pieces for different applications.

people are skeptical of the chips; they seem to do nothing for some cars, and work as advertised on others...i have the proecm on my car, and for a $250 chip, it works well enough for me. the more and more i learn about these various chips for our cars, the more i suspect the reason mine seems to have a better result than most RS owners is the fact that the 1.8 doesn't have a knock sensor intervening (and therefore cancelling out the timing advance) while things are still at a perfectly safe level of operation...but no one really knows for sure what's at work with the chips...

subaru changed the shift linkage in '97, so things like the kartboy levers won't fit into the cup on the older shift assembly. so you have 2 options: swap your entire linkage assembly out for an RS linkage, or get something like the STi short shifter that has the entire linkage, OR simply have the fulcrum point on your stock shift level cut off and welded up about an inch higher. Kostamojen had this done to his car, and eventually ended up switching over to a donor RS linkage...i bought the lever off him for $10, and it works just as well as a kartboy, although without the bushings it still has a little side to side slop.
