note to others - EURO market models discussion. :)

Hi guys,

would somebody be so kind to explain me the differences in Forester 2.0XT engine vs Impreza WRX.

2004 Forester XT 2.0 177 PS (174 bhp) (130 kW) @ 5600 rpm
2004 Impreza WRX 2.0 224.PS (221 bhp) (164 kW) @ 5600 rpm

1. I have read that due to the different cams Forester has more low down torque, but less HP.
2. gearing in the gearbox/final gear
3. Any other stuff like turbo charger
4. what needs to be done to bump the Forester HP figures to WRX?

Kind regards,
ZaX

Rather than me list everything on here (although my knowledge is limited anyhow!) just use the search function as this has been covered a LOT on the different forums.

Indeed!

Summary on engine, smaller turbo (TF035 ILO TD04) and softer cams (8.5mm valve lift ILO 9mm and shorter duration).
