Wow... who told you that?Thinking about doing a full intake and exhaust to hopefully bring the horse power rating up to 250 from a 2.5l engine
one company i will always trustis K&N they say 7.6 hp from teir intake and i know they dont lieexhuast and intake might give you 5 hp, plus possibly void the warranty. one thing people dont realize that when changing exhuast or full system it change's the back pressure needed and throwns other variables off in the tuning of the car. and dont believe the hyped numrs companies give on hp gains.
i put about 70 miles a day on a car and wanted something thats not gonna send me to sleepmy friend kevin had this car some 3 years ago and put it to the test went through his clutch twice and damaged his axel as well hes rough on cars and maybe it would of held up had he not gotten so crazy dropping it and putting all this cold air intake and camber kits but all in all he loved mazda and subaru but got rid of the car and went back to mazda, its a great car if you like stick but it lacks room in the back but to be skipping around town , its definitely a keeper, enjoy it man, its a nice ride
