Re: 2008 2.5i sedan

once you get your CF WRX Hood it's going to look pretty muh like a rex, I'd say at the point you should think about being one of the first people to boost an 08 2.5i :)

But yeah I like the way your car looks and sits a lot, I don't why the people on NASIOC have to be such tools. Most of them don't even own subies, buttholes...

Re: 2008 2.5i sedan

our engines can take about 6 psi safely, but youll want to stay at 5 max if you want your engine to last a while.

Raptor may be coming out with an 08 compatible bolt on supercharger kit in Feb that will provide 5.2 psi. Comes with nearly everything (including piggyback ECU) except spark plugs and it should be around $2,250. The mechanical install of everything is amazingly simple, spark plugs and ECU aside it takes like 2 hours and most anyone could do it...

Their 2005 RS hit around 217 chp and 259 ft-lbs... pretty astonishing actually. Might require a HFC not sure (he said free flowing exhaust was very important)

anyway some links for those interested (I know i am):

Re: 2008 2.5i sedan

To the OP:

Post some pics' of the engine bay!

And also, have you had any problems (i.e. CEL) with the Cosmo Intake? Aftermarket intakes on 2.5i's are infamous for giving weird MAF readings and the like.

Thanks!
