Subaru of America Announces New SPT Power Packs

SPT Delivers Big Boost in horsepower and torque

LAS VEGAS, Oct. 31, 2006 – Subaru of America announced today at the SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association) Show in Las Vegas the launch of SPT Power Packs, a performance kit designed for Subaru Impreza WRX and STI and the Subaru Legacy 2.5 GT. The Power Packs consist of the SPT Performance Exhaust System, SPT High Flow Air Intake System and SPT Heat Shield.

SPT performance products each offer great features individually, but when combined, the Power Packs deliver a big punch. The SPT Power Packs have been dyno-tested and, when measured at the wheel, produce up to 30hp and 20lb-ft of torque on a stock 2007 STI, up to 10hp with 17lb-ft of torque on a stock 2006 WRX model, and up to 30hp and 30lb-ft of torque on a stock 2007 Legacy GT Sedan.

The SPT Performance Exhaust features a larger diameter, 3-inch stainless steel construction which replaces the stock intermediate pipe and muffler, resulting in an enhanced sound and performance.

The SPT High Flow Air Intakes are constructed of 319 die cast aluminum, manufactured to ensure smooth high flowing bends. Each intake kit includes; a silicone reinforced boot, anti-vibration mounting system, stainless steel t-bolt clamps, and a SPT 4-layer cotton gauge filter with a built-in velocity stack for smooth air flow. The intakes feature a new gunmetal gray-textured power-coat finish with a raised SPT logo, and are CARB certified and compliant with 50-state emissions regulations.

The SPT Heat Shields help ensure a supply of cool air to the engine intakes, thus reducing the loss of power that comes from a heated intake charge. Cooler air is drawn from inside the passenger front wheel well and behind the headlight; not from the hotter areas surrounding the turbocharger, engine and radiator. Unlike a traditional cold air intake, which places the filter element as low as possible in the vehicle, this setup helps to supply cool air while limiting the risk of water ingestion.
