Subaru's in general not thought to be big contenders natrually aspirated. Their AWD system and other luxurys tend to make them much much heavier then other small displacement four cylinder powered "sport compacts".

However, turbocharged the AWD system natrually fits into the equation to provided the now needed traction removed when you added the extra 100hp.

My advice would be to purchuse a WRX 2.0L Turbo motor swap. Then you could have the look and power of a WRX with the insurance of a 2.5RS!

I couldn't have said it better my self. Though I'm doing an STi short block with turbo, exaust and a few other tweaks.

install the coilovers, sell the 18" chrome wheels and get some 17" GramLites, Run Boost, buy brakes.
