We were jawboning the other day, and I guesstimated there aren't more than about 100 out there.

Any thoughts? Any way to know?

I would guess more than 100.

Just factoring in all the RST parts like J&S dual channels and other bits. Throw in the various kits that made it out in differing numbers as well as do-it-yourselfs and it easily hits 100.

I would be willing to guess 150 but probably not more than 200.

i'd think 100 is about right. maybe 150 aftermarket turboed imprezas but i doubt there are 150 turbo RS's

mmmmm.... Turbo Foresters... My life long dream, at least since the Forester came to be.

So how many successfull supercharged cars are there? Al Gainey is one.

There were 4 RS-T's at a meet I recently attended, and there were only 20 Impreza's total. Fastest was Larry Ganz's in my estimation.

So is there some secret society? A handshake, or a symbol or something?

How can I find out what it is?

Or is it a secret?

There is ARG, Giulio, 5252, and I remember some guy in either the NE or Ohio (I forget). I'm willing to bet there is 6 out there in the US already...

I'll be watching the centrifugal kit, though. Very interesting, maybe one of these days I'll have cash for something cool like that. For now, it's just the turbo kit... not even sure I want to put it back on due to the fact that I wouldn't be able to afford to fix the car if/when I broke it again. :(

Now what kind of talk is that!! Most RS owners DREAM of having a turbo kit for the ride, and your beating around the bush and lollygagging..:barf:

I'm broke as a joke myself, that's why I don't speed any more.:)

To all My RS Compadres...

Follow 8's advice...After all the accumalation of High Performance Parts and Tuning Equipment for my RS, I am left with barely any emergency money...I will not cut the corners on this project now...I will make sure that the Mechanical parts are up to the task...Save for the Tranny is what I hear in my head...In the meantime, enjoy the car you have now as it still makes for a fun ride when you toss it around corners...Who cares if your getting schooled by Hondas that are boosting or have worked engines...They don't have to worry about making too much torque and ripping trannies apart...They don't have 3 Diffs to Maintain...They have Mountains of Spare parts available to them...We have what they want...I guarantee you that most Import Enthusiasts will take a stock RS over any of the Millions of identical Hondas...If money was abundant then I'll be singing a different song but its not and I have to be smart or I will not be having fun for as long as I plan to...

Imagine what it will be like to have the Vishnu Kit, Worked over Heads, Built Bottom End, FI TEC 2 with Jammy Fuel Rails and I have to resist installing it because the tranny will not take the power...Ohhhhhhhhh my head hurts..........

Zee:barf:

Well there are at least 5 in Northern California I know of, 2 more on the way from LudeSpeed and who knows what else. Of course a bunch on the way from Vishu Performance.

I'll have my turbo on in two weeks, so count me in. We recently had a meet here in Central Florida and there were three RS-T's out of 25 cars, and I don't think that they were on the internet. My assumption is that there are more RS-T's out there than we all think.
