Do you mean you are looking for ways to increase HP or where in the powerband the car is making the most HP?

To my understanding they didn't make 2.5's for any 94 L.

Maybe mistaken for 2.2? Or perhaps a 2.5 swap he did we didn't know

Well for mid-high range power, I think (depending on your budget) why not put some cams into the engine while its out of the car, and perhaps port you heads at a shop if you are able to.

Take advantage of the fact that the motor is out of the car and the performance hot spots are readily acessable for modification. Once you do whatever you can to the motor (heads, cams etc), put the motor in the car.

Then, when you are willing and able, continue with the bolt ons such as exhaust, intake, pully etc. And later down the road, put some engine management icing on the cake with a piggy back system such as Unichip.

But please do the cams and heads now while the motor is out of the car, that is a big advantage for you, forget about the easy to install bolt ons for now and do the tough stuff you cant normally do without removing the motor anyway.

For cylinder heads at a good price (as well as anything that goes in a subaru, even STi motors/trannys) go to www.lachutesubaru.com and call them (1-450-562-0262) and talk to Ben, Julien or Mark, these guys will help you out. All prices are in canadian dollars so you save on the exchange rate, whch is great.

Good luck, and please do the big stuff now!

Dan
