2006 Subaru Impreza 2.5i
Hello everyone, I have a couple questions that I figured could be answered fairly soon here. I have a 06 Sub Impreza 2.5i. I purchased this car last Dec and I am 18 yrs. old, meaning I would have purchased the STI or WRX but I can't afford the insurance. So here is my situation, I am now looking to do some performance modifications to it. I KNOW SUBARU has created the line of Imprezas to come how they want them to run and tuned them the correct performance stock. BUT I want to put the money into mine to make it run better than it does now. I am looking to install a Greddy catback exhaust onto for the 10+ h.p I will get out of it with the performance sounds as a plus. I also want to install a cold air intake which should make it get a little better mpg plus a couple horses. I am also looking to do an aftermarket turbo install into it but I haven't done much research into that yet. I am wondering if anyone could give me some advice as to what exhaust system would be best for my non turbo engine as of this moment and a nice air intake for a 06. I would greatly appreciate any comments or advice from you. Thanks for your time.

You can stay normally aspirated and still do a lot - intake, exhaust, lighter/underdrive pulley, cams, etc.
That's about right.
Cobb tuning is a big one, I'd consult with them about any forced induction applications.
I'm having a hard time finding a carbon fiber hood and a bdy kit for my 06, did you find any?
the site i linked you to before with the intake is my site, own it so i am trying to open an account with the body kit company to see if i can get it cheaper, i will let you know how it turns out
Are there any other parts needed? Does the secret weapon intake tube has a inlet for the air massflow flowmeter.
Is there some instruction guode on the internet to look at.
Thanks for the help
Why would girls be any less capable? My 7 year old daughter helped me bleed my brakes. :shades:
I have read the instructions and looked at the pictures.
Instruction #7 is all clear but #8 puzzles me, perhaps because english is nit my language.
7 Measure from valve cover PCV port to intake pipe port. Replace with supplied 10mm hoses.
8 Use "T" fitting to crankcase PCV port to 10mm port on intake pipe. Replace with supplied 10mm hose.
Do you have some pictures on web zootedemalish? Or can you send some pictures of your assembly?
I would reallt apreciate your help.
Mechanically I have no issues but working on this part, cars, is completely new to me.
Thanks for all the help
But there is a small and dedicated aftermarket for Subaru, though it mostly focuses on the WRX.
You can find intakes, exhausts, pulleys, cams, clutches, and that type of thing for the 2.5l, but if you want a lot of performance just start with a WRX TR.
and wouldn't that kinda pointless to put a turbo on a SOHC engine? thanks
I wouldn't put a turbo on a brand new engine still under warranty. You'd probably have to change a lot of internals to produce a lot of boost (pistons with a lower compression ratio, for starters).
I'd start with a WRX TR, it's easier to modify and already has the beefy internals.
