    A less-restrictive exhaust manifold and system, a better induction kit and an ECU re-flash or a chip-change are the starting-points. But you seem to be trying to do all this on a shoe-string budget. You can't have your cake, AND eat it. Also, you could strip the interior and fit just two light bucket seats up front - removing weight helps power, handling, economy AND braking.

    Hi here in the united kingdom for use on the public highway this is not an option.

    why after years of so many accidents the insurances companies and the government have put a stop to it. they the government have an agency which checks out any car of this type and if it is found to be anything but a standard car they have it crushed. Vosa is the agency a test facility.

    so not telling the insurance company gets you a jail term along with it being crushed even if it ends up in just a small fender bender incident. or just stopped by the police after all they can't have you getting away from a police subaru can we.

    so the insurance company pull the plug on you as it is not a standard car and inform the police so you have no insurance and it is off to the crusher with the car.

    if yo live in the US, get this http://www.cobbtuning.com/Subaru-Accessport-p/ap-s... If not tin the US, then find out what tuners in your area use for engine management and get a tune. A tune from a good tuner can increase power, reliability and even mileage. You can also have tunes altered later if you decide to add parts like an exhaust or intake.

    Place a bleed valve between the inlet manifold and wastegate actuator. Cost will be about AU$100. Only do this if you have an accurate boost gauge. A free flowing exhaust will compliment this immensely, however a straight through rear muffler will do. Remember : AIR = POWER. You will have to bypass or trick the boost solenoid by looping the boost inlet to the output side.

    BEWARE: MORE BOOST MEANS MORE HEAT. TOO MUCH HEAT MEANS DETONATION FOLLOWED BY BLOWN MOTOR. 16PSI SHOULD GIVE YOU A MODEST IMPROVEMENT.

    Good luck!!
