Post questions on forced induction please help...

i am close in buying a my00 impreza 2.5rs. i want to go forced induction (i.e. turbo, sc) but would like to get testimonials from people with turbos and sc on their impreza's. which companies make turbos for these cars - i've heard minnam and jc (which is a more reliable system and easier to install?) also i've been trying to get the url for rimmer superchargers but can not find one - does someone have the addy for them? what times could i expect with a turbo or sc @ 5-7 psi? what other mods will i need to do to make this a reliable car - it will be a daily driver for a while till i can afford a reliable beater for chicago winters. any feedback is greatly appreciated.

If you are only planning on running 5-7 psi then you should be fine with either the JC or Minnam kit.

I don't know whether those kits come with just an AFC (air/fuel computer) or with a fuel pressure regulator also, but if they do not come with a fuel pressure regulator you might want one of those as well because the stock injectors get maxed out very quickly once you start boosting the engine. If you get the Minnam kit it comes with a J&S knock sensor to control timing, but something like an ITC would be better because it will pull back timing before knock occurs.

If you're worried about reliable, the best thing you could do would be to get guages. Air/fuel ratio guage, exhaust gas temperature guage, fuel pressure guage, oil temp guage. Though you don't need all of these, all will help tell you what is happening inside your engine. If the EGTs get too high, or the A/F too lean then you better get used to taking the bus.
