Subaru vehicles have always been unique, and the modern lineup is no exception. These capable cars feature all-wheel-drive, many with turbocharged engines, which makes them excellent candidates for drag racing, autocrossing, time attack, and rally racing. It’s this versatility, along with their unique styling and practicality, that make Subarus so popular.
Now more than ever, Subaru fanatics have a wealth of factory and aftermarket performance upgrades at their disposal. In High-Performance Subaru Builder’s Guide, author Jeff Zurschmeide explains in detail the similarities and differences between the Subaru models, and describes how to modify each for performance on the street and at the track. He uses over 300 color photos to show you how to modify your Impreza, Legacy, WRX, or STI for improved acceleration, handling, braking, and style.
Zurschmeide provides detailed chapters explaining how to modify the intake, exhaust, turbocharger, and computer systems for more horsepower and torque—plus info on upgrading your drivetrain to handle all that power. If taking corners is your thing, you’ll find chapters on the suspension, steering, wheels and tires, chassis, and brakes.
