Do a search. Read the N/A Power forum. Etc. This engine has been getting modified since '97. There is much knowledge to be gleaned here.

But, I'll give you a quick overview: Filter (incl. 'snorkusectomy' ). Cat-back exhaust. Underdrive pulley. But, the really big bang-for-the-buck is suspension.

I agree with radio flyer but I gotta add the borola headers or however you spell that, too early to think just now.

Intake, Exhaust, Apex i SAFC, E-Ram (ElectricSupercharger.com) I am currently researching a similar setup that will make a lot more power than the current E-Ram. Fuel Pressure Riser, and Nitrous.

That should give you 200+ Hp at the crank all for under $2000. Oh you would probably also want a 15lb flywheel and an ACT Clutch. This will help you better use the available power.

You could also spend about $450 for a set of Cams from Cobbtuning.com. That will give you at least another 20hp. The only problem with those is installation will cost you the same if not more than what the cams themselves cost.

My 2001 needs more power and I was wondering how involved the flywheel replacement is. I replaced a clutch on my old mazda truck back in 92, but don't know if I could do it on the outback. Plus, if I did the flywhel, clutch, intake and pulleys would I notice a quicker 0-60? Would there be any negative side affects such as poor fuel economy?

Default Said it before

as with most initial mods you will have the capability to get better mileage but with the extra HP/TORQUE it is hard not to use it (all the time) so you will probably experience better economy on the open FWY but less on the streets. and by the way if you are really concerned W/ fuel economy you might consider going with a drop in filter K&N filter rather than an aftermarket intake. A good start that will give you a noticeable difference in both power and fuel economy would be to get a k&n drop in air filter and cat back exhaust of your choice (maybe even underdrive pulleys) check cobb tunings web site they used to have a great price on a starter kit with the prior mentioned parts. Hope this helps
