2009 Subaru Impreza WRX 5-door SPT at 2008 SEMA

2009 Impreza WRX 5-door SPT at 2008 SEMA

How far can you take an Impreza WRX using parts from the Subaru Genuine Accessory and SPT (Subaru Performance Tuning) catalogs? Pretty far, it turns out. Subaru mined both catalogs to come up with a combination of performance, styling and user technology that any enthusiast could easily duplicate — all at once or by adding parts over time. The resulting car makes a unique performance and design statement while remaining true to the WRX’s everyday drivability character and value.

The 2009 Impreza WRX already comes with a standard factory Aero Body Kit, so external mods were limited to a front lip spoiler by STI and Subaru genuine Accessory fog light protectors.

The more hunkered-down stance is courtesy of STI performance springs and Botticelli III 19×8-in. wheels by OZ Racing. A lower chassis brace and strut tower brace from the SPT catalog round out the chassis mods.

Subaru boosted the WRX’s 2.5-liter intercooled turbo Boxer engine to 265 hp 244 lb.-ft. for 2009; this special WRX raises that to 275 hp and 250 lb.-ft. with a SPT cat-back exhaust. The driver can make the most of the power with the help of an STI short-throw shifter. The under-hood area gets a visual boost with an SPT oil cap, turbo heat shield and battery hold-down.
