    Every subaru/toyota entusias was waiting for that factoey turbo set up and they are not willing to give it to them. Shame.

    Great read man
    Coming from the wr1 witch was single scroll to the spec c twinscroll I could feel a difference the twin was just quicker to spool up
    I still haven't had the car mapped but as soon as I do I'll let you know what it's like at full chatt.

    Only downside for me was missing the Subaru rumble.
    But I'm loving the rasp now ��

    Some of the lads in the UK are running the twinscroll set up on classic Impreza's with great results as they are lighter cars

    Seems like twin scroll is a winner hands down and only the sentiment to the good ol exaust tune is in the way. Would be nice to give a feedback after get it mapped. I thinks Ross is in the same boat?

    twinscroll Has an amazing sound especially through a nurspec and there is so many reasons why its better than single scroll but I'd miss the subaru rumble way to much . For me the rumble is what makes a subaru different to every other fast saloon on the road .

    The 2.5 twinscroll route on imprezas is not ideal. Can have negitive effects.

    But on 2.5 tax hawks if rebuilding a 2.1 stroker twin scroll build is excellent with a drop to €710 2L tax is top up bonus.

    Bang for buck on new age imo is like Mac macs. RSR GT30 twinscroll conversion of vf36/37 and depending on fuel 95/E5/E5+ NF can hit late 380 bhp on factory engine providing its healthty.
