This is my UK 2000 Turbo Impreza GC8 which is a work in progress. It’s a UK 2000 2.0L with a VF35 turbo from a UK STI. I bought the car just over 2 years ago and got to modifying it pretty much straight away. Like all old cars it has it’s ups and downs but I wouldn’t swap it for anything else. The U.K. turbo Impreza came from the factory with 215bhp which in today’s standards is nothing, but 16 years ago was pretty impressive for a family saloon. At the moment I’m running between 330-350bhp which I feel is enough at the as I have also stripped out the rear interior.
I’m lucky living where I do as I have access to some of the best Impreza tuners in the world consisting of Andy Napier and the guys @ RA Motorsport along side mapping god, Andy Forrest. I’ve tried to do my own thing when it comes to visual mods (which isn’t exactly been taking too well in the UK Subaru scene). I like to take inspiration from other sectors of the car scene i.e Nissans Volkswagen and yes even Hondas lol.
