Default 93 subaru impreza mods?

I have a 1993 subaru impreza awd wagon. I just got my lisence, but already have gone out for a few nights of hard driving with some friends. After one night of a few redlines, a horrible smell came from the engine bay. We believe the vaccum cleaner intake plastic thing melted from the heat. Anyways, to my question. Are there any quality aftermarket parts for the old wagons? such as intake and exhaust. Or is there only RS and EJ20 swaps?

ummm, plastic parts don't randomly melt from hard driving, you might want to look into the reason that anything near it got that hot. Not to mention this but you SHOULD NOT be driving that way if you just got your license, you have NO idea how to handle a car yet.

yeah, figure otu what cause the funny smell, and save to fix that...then after that, you can get an intake, highflow cat, cat back exhaust, headers, probably cams, interior goodies, tranny mounts......basically, a lot of parts from an RS will fit onto your car. headers wont unless you have a dual port engine...bot borla makes single ports.

Smell = Clutch? If you drive like a tard, you're going to burn up your wheels. Take it easy until you have something that can handle it better.

Yeah...you have no business driving like that if you don't know what's going on with the car. You very well could blow something up, not know it and completely ruin you car. Live, learn and then get hp.

Gotta love NASIOC. Come looking for a simple answer, get life lessons instead.

I agree, though. Here's what you need to do:

1. Fix what's wrong with the engine...
2. Take some real driving classes, if you plan to TRY to drive like that...
3. Don't do it on public roads. Autocross is your friend.

Besides: win a race at an auto-X and you get trophies or awards. Win or lose a race on the street, and get hurt, killed, humiliated, insulted, forgotten or thrown in jail.


Tough decision, man, I dunno.......................

The only time I drive like this is when others are not around.

I've had my license for 2 years now and did a ton of driving, 2 days after I got it I drove to Canada, then NYC and to VA.


nevertheless

not much you can do with the ej18 an engine swap I think would be the best for what you want.
