1991 Pimpssan

Default 1992 impreza help

I was told that there was a impreza model in which the tranny could withstand 500hp and they sold a stage three upgrade kit to bring it to about 425hp (i think) I was wondering if anyone knew of this model and what websites would help me out. Also if seems like this is a dumbass question that means then there are many impreza models and years tyhat can do this same thing. Dont know anything about subarus except for the fact that the brat is one pimpdaddy mofuger, but i am looking for a car to make almost rally but still a little bit street legal. Please help me out. If you dont give me any advice then i am going to buy a mazda 323 gtx and then make that my rally/sleeper car. It seems as though it is a good car and easy to find upgraded parts for it. tell me your opinions on that car as well. You probobly wont like because of the styling but i am looking for functioality not looks. peace

About Impreza

The Subaru Impreza was launched in November of 1992
^^^ From the FAQ's

So it could have been from 1992 but tagged a MY93 ... still no idea about that transmission load capability though

There is an impreza whose drivetrain can handle up to 500 hp, and can be easily brought up to 425hp, unfortunately, the only place you can get this car is in GT3.

the REAL red


You might be thinking of the early ej20 engines with a closed deck design. You could get 500HP out of one of those (lot of mods), for a little while. You'd need a $10K full dog transmission that wouldn't be ideal for the street. So yeah, you could do it. Just get a closed deck ej20 from Japan, a tuner who knows how to get those 500 ponies out of it on our 93 Octane gas, and crank the boost, and, and, and, and...

Just buy an older Impreza, and do some suspension, brake and tire mods if you want to go rally.
