i was recently told (as in today) by a reputable subaru fanatic that using 93 octane fuel is better for all engines, regardless of type. ill try out some 93 in the ol' sube next time i fill the tank and we'll see whats up.

You guys running 93 are wasting money. Unless you've raised your compression through forced induction or high C/R pistons or are running a very aggressive timing curve there is absolutely no benefit to using 93. The RS was designed to run on 87, 89 might get you 1 or 2 degrees extra timing advance but 93 is most certainly slowing you down... remember octane is the resistance to detonation (proper and pre). You want to use the lowest octane that doesn't knock, period.

Default Basically stock but not for long

'99 Impreza Outback Sport
Silver/tan... soon to be world rally blue
Stock ej223

Removed intake "snorkus"::no noticable increase in power... engine is louder, deeper, and much more throaty from 4k to redline.

GReddy 1.3bar radiator cap::I know, I know... but I had to drive the car from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, to Portland, Oregon, in the dead heat of summer and needed some insurance to keep my mind on driving and off of overheating.


H&R Sport springs::Lowered car significantly (noticable if you saw the car often), improved cornering abilities exponentially, almost non-existant body roll, all good things

Stock 15" Alloy Wheels
Stock BFGs

Hawk HPS Front Pads::Noticable braking performance increase, lessoned fade, same brake pedal feel

Debadged trunk::Much much cleaner looking arse.

Removed 'Outback Sport' decals from sides::I was bored.



Mods to be done before January 1st...

AVO Turbo Kit
AVO Boost Gauge
Exedy Clutch
Rallitek 2.75" Turbo Exhaust
Bridgestone RE750s
MY98 2.5RS 16" Wheels
Triple-gauge Pod with EGT, Air/fuel, Oil Pressure Gauges
In-dash CD Player

I know it is a lot but it IS GOING TO BE DONE... but don't quote me

PS: Sorry for all the writing but it makes it look like I have more mods than I do
