Post Friends 97 Impreza Outback-MODS

I have a friend who has a 97 Impreza Outback.

What can he do with his car? Pretty much the same stuff as 2.5RS owners...? He has a 2.2L engine, so I guess he could go for a Legacy turbo ?

I'm thinking he should start simple, suspension, rear bar etc....?

Any recommendations? thanks!!!!


cheers

I think they make one just for the outback...check www.autocaresubaru.com or www.teaguesauto.com , i do believe they have sections just for the legacy, and or outback.

hmmm...i'm confused by the name game that seems to have gone on.

i have an rs...how is the impreza outback 97 different? for example, can he upgrade to rs suspension and brakes?

is there a good online source for what can be swapped and what can't?

thanks for all input so far.

almost everything is same except the engine. I have Underdrive pulley, Weapon-R intake, 20mm swaybar, Tein HA in my OBS. I think exhaust system will be the same also. Dale Teagues told me ACT clutch will fit into OBS also.

eicbal18 is right. It's an Impreza after all. But don't "upgrade" to the RS suspension at all as everything is the same except fo rthe taller springs that the OBS has which is supposed to be heavy duty. Swap in the RS springs and your friend's rear will sag..... Get either WRX springs or coilovers like TEINs....
