    Hey guys. just joined the forums and stuff.

    I just got an Impreza GX 2.0, 5 spd manual '02 model. my second car, but my first proper one. I'm young, ive had my license for just over 2 years. i love cars but know nothing about engines, tuning, performance and stuff. id like my car to go a bit quicker but still be legal and legit. whats the best option? (other than buying a wrx which i definately can't afford!) should i just find a tuning shop and ask them? are there any tricks that doesnt require tweaking the engine to fit in a turbo charger? i got to drive my dads old car a bit (Alfa GT) and it felt awesome just to take off because it felt it responded so well. i'd like to have that feeling in my car!

    appreciate your advice.

    Jacko

    Your car is the non turbo. So look at sports exhaust, induction kit, Fuel Boost Valve (FSE), fast road cams in that order. Then you can take the engine to bits and start modding the internals with some head work, gas flowing and bigger valves.
