98 = DOHC slightly lower torque down low 162ft/lb
99+ = SOHC torque uped to 166 ft/lb
same HP all years
98-99 = MAF air sensor, gold 98, silver 99, five spoke rims
00-01 = MAP air sensor, silver six spoke rims, and a rear LSD
98 = L/OBS style front bumper
99+ = V5 front bumper

each new year added more standard equipment, and color and door configurations also changed

Yes, your best bet is to find a 00-01 Impreza. There is no advantage to getting an earlier year one....besides the gold rims

Next time, try doing a search. This subject has been covered many of times.;) Well, if you are thinking about turbo'ing, the 99' has a slightly lowered compression. 9.5 to 1i think. Makes it more boost friendly. Also, the 99's i think have been known to blow maf's with aftermarket intake, BUT....I believe the problem has been fixed, if i am not mistaken. :confused: If i am wrong in anyway, please feel free to make corrections.:flame:

i didn't mean to flame you. I was just suggesting that you would try searching before asking a question, since this is a fairy common question.
