Is 212bhp, mods so far to achieve that are:
Smoked lights,
Wing mirrors,
And strip the floor mats out with a hammer.

Job done.

What a waste of a GSi Bumper

Hold on, lets check the actual performance items here which improve power....


2.0 litre redtop conversion - 150bhp

race cams - + 10bhp IF he has wild cams, and pocketed pistons.... Morelike 5-6bhp otherwise...
oil cooler - Not performance

port and polished forged pistons - Wic ked, ported and polished pistons... Not heard that one, not that pistons actually improve power, only strength, ho hum....


full exhaust - Standard conversion part... +2-3bhp..

forced induction - Not in those pics it aint.. +1bhp

lightend flywheel - Doesn't give power
triple plate clutch - Doesn't give power

ecu remap - Oh the 1996 Subraru ECU which will do nothing. Maybe increase fuel for the cams, not really goign to do anything unless is custom mappable and he's spent hours on the road setting it up manaually...


So, Damiens conclusion is that its a stnadard XE, with cams, and will be running about 160bhp, maybe 170bhp to be kind...

I'd be more inclined to say its probably a really fucked old oil burning piece of shit running about 130bhp on a good day when its not in limp mode because a moron fitted it.

He may have high comp pistons which do increase power, more than likely its just a standard old fucked xe with a ebay resistor mod (custom ecu).

Why has he got a triple plated clutch? Don't believe that for a second.
