    05 Impreza RS to STI

    I am new to this site and to the automotive world so any and all advice would really be appriciated.

    I was wondering what it would take to increase the performance of a 05 RS to the level of an STI? like Price and what I would need done?

    Alot more money then it's worth doing.

    You would be looking at more then likely somewhere in the neighborhood of 10-15k and that's if you did all the labor. You have to swap suspension, interior, drivetrain, brakes, wheels, tires, HID headlights, DCCD, and a few others.

    Not very realistic by any means and odds are it wont be as reliable or have as much resale value as the real thing.

    That is good to know and I was just curious on the matter. Im guessing it would just be more cost effective saving up and just buying an STI straight up?
