Slightly improving performance of '98GT


Recommended Posts

I'm interested in slightly (and thus, economically!) improving the performance (acceleration) of my '98 Legacy GT.


I live at high altitude, and have searched for cold air intakes. Thus far, I have not found an intake system that fits this generation Legacy. Do you all know of one that is out there, or any other possibilities to cheaply improve performance?

Ok, let me see here......


You can get a lightweight crank pulley:



One of my favorites is Boxer 4 racing (Teague's Auto)

They have almost everything.



A couple of good parts can be had here:



Any local muffler shop will make a custom exhaust for much

more cheaply than anything you can buy from a vendor.


I would say, for a naturally aspirated approach, I've noticed,

that these parts make a good combo.


--A good header. Borlas are pretty cheap, and I've had mine forever,

even now that I'm turbocharged.


--A 2.25" Exhaust. Like I said, can be custom-made.


--A stromung high flow cat. I think this was the biggest gain right



--Lightweight pulley (not underdriven)


--Stock airbox with snorkster removed, and one of those fender



--You could eventually look into cams, from TWE, Cobb, and a few

others, but then you're getting into some costs, especially for the

DOHC engine.
