    CY is a small market; in fact I don't think we've had other members with cars in CY on the forum. In any case, I recommend you treat the car like a UK model, as I can't envision Subaru having something specific and right hand drive for a smaller sales area. If that's the case, the Prodrive package had more than one option; there was a back box that alone would not offer any improvement, but they also offered modified intakes and ECU mapping.

    Contact Prodrive direct and look through their back catalogue.

    For the maintenance, look at your owner's manual and prefer authentic parts. If your car didn't come with a manual, look at the UK version. The US version states timing belts are due at 105K miles, for example, so yours was done much earlier, and I don't know if the difference was intentional or not.

    The air filter, oil filler cap, and battery are not standard items. Check the back box and follow the exhaust backwards to the turbo to see if the midsection has also been replaced. If there are no heat shields or fancy heat shields around the up pipe and near the turbo, then the up pipe has also likely been replaced. Prodrive also provided suspension and body bits.

    I looked up Subaru Cyrpus:

    Kabushiki gaisha Denso is an automotive parts maker from Japan. I suspect what you are reading is the label for the mass air flow sensor, that is in fact made by Denso. In any case, I don't recognize the air filter either, sorry. Scoobynet should be able to help and since I see you are in UK, inquire with Prodrive directly for parts identification and such if the local forums can't ID them for you.

    So you've got a RHD car with the speedo reading KM, not miles? That could be among the few differences between the UK and CY versions (just a hypothesis, since even though there's a Subaru dealer in every major city in CY, I'm using "major" leniently and the population as you know is small so the market must be very small compared to UK).

    Luckily or not, MOT will of course be able to tell you exactly what the care needs... Hopefully not all that much, if anything at all.

    Good luck!

    An EU model should have the world export gearbox with longer ratios.
