Newbie -2009 STI Spec C


Recommended Posts

Hi all, newbie here. My name is Paul and I live in Mid Wales. Today I just purchased my first Subaru. Unfortunately it's currently 6000 miles away lol

So 2016 was pretty ****, I figured lets make 2017 fun. This begins with a new toy. I wanted something for for track days, euro road trips and The Nurburgring.

It had to be fast, reliable, able to take a bag or two  and not depreciate like a stone.

The finalists were an E46 M3, Evo 9 GT, Impreza Spec C Type RA Blobeye or Impreza Spec C hatch.

Well yesterday thanks to the help from Torque GT we bid and won this little beauty.

Hopefully hitting the water in a week or two before it's 10 week journey to the U.K.

To say I'm excited is an understatement.

Plans are exhaust, filter, and remap which should see 360-370 bhp. Also change the rear lenses for something more subtle.


Oh and I'm well aware of the colour thanks lol

Totally standard buddy. The colour is unique to the Spec C, which is a Japanese market car only, so no U.K Impreza will be this colour.

Main difference is a 2.0l engine, not the 2.5l. So stronger engine.

Better suspension.

Twin scroll turbo.

Wotcha and welcome - awesome motor you have there, if you are looking for quite a bit of track work consider fitting also an air / oil separator, a sump baffle and whilst you are in there an uprated oil pickup (OEM ones can fail).
