98 DOHC impreza
DOHC impreza, supercharged (8 psi), intake/exhaust, A/T , and live in a very warm and humid city. The previous owner pieced together the s/c kit, but it doesn't appear to have any fuel management done. I'd like it to perform as well if not better than a newer WRX, but no crazy numbers or anything. What upgrades would I need for this thing to make some power and not eat itself.

Well, since its doing 8 PSI i'm going to assume its got an Intercooler. I would hope that they atleast used a RRFPR and something to control timing. the DOHC has some small injectors, the 99 SOHC has bigger ones. If you want more power, your going to need a Fuel pump if it already doesn't have an upgraded one, bigger injectors. and something to control them. A piggy back like the Perfect Power or the E-manage will work. You can get the Perfect power at http://www.rallitek.com Then you'll need to tune it and get a smaller pulley for your supercharger. I would think at 8 PSI you should have enough power to beat a WRX..

Agreed. Get something to tune the fuel and timing with and you'll
notice enormous gains with the same level of boost. It will
also burn cleaner and get better gas mileage.
With a tune, I imagine you could beat a WRX without much
problem. I run a turbo system at 8-9 psi (depending on the seasons),
with lower compression pistons, and I can easily destroy a WRX.
Judging from the other subarus i've driven I'd say I'm around 280 lbs/ft
I would say also, that you shouldn't get an RRFPR with 8 psi, unless you
have SOMETHING that'll let you cut back fuel at higher RPMS (>4000).
With an SAFC II I was able to lean out the top end and make some real
power back (RRFPR was drowning it in fuel.)

What supercharger is it? Who did the kit? Has one of the few running Rimmer's actually surfaced???
