Default Turbo and Intake systems?

Im planning on installing a Turbo and an Intake system on my 99 Impreza 2.5RS. My Questions are:

What Turbos and Intake systems do you suggest?

If I add a Turbo it has been suggested to add new driveshafts, because the stock driveshafts supposedly can't take the power, is that true?

And is there a rev limiter on the car that keeps it from going faster than 120mph and will i have to add new gauges if i add the turbo and the intake system.

My car already has K&N filter, STi struts and rear tower brace in the trunk, and is lowered an inch.

Thanks for the help.

swap and N20. gone. : (


And any turbo kit should come with an intake already. Remember, the intake goes directly to your turbo, then to your throtlebody.

Hehe, I would suggest adding an IC between the turbo and the throttle body

Reading the sticky will give you a better idea, but yes you will need gauges; that's a must.

The tranny isn't the most ideal setup as stock, but really it depends on how powerful your setup is going to be and how you drive.

Good luck
