Hi and welcome.... Very Happy

To be honest there isnt a lot of tuning power parts for the 2.0 sport so extracting any kind of power from one is going to be hard. I know there is an exhaust manifold made for the Sport but its quite expensive and ive no idea what gains are to be had if fitted.

The best place to find out any real info on the 2.0 Sport is going to be http://www.imprezasport.net/forums/index.php?app=portal

Hell and welcome.

My Mrs has a 2l Sport. It is pointless bunging money at a Sport, lots of money for a very low bhp gain. Handling and brakes can be improved, and as said the exhaust manifold can be changed for a un-equal length one but you are only going to see 5bhp or so gain for your 200.

Best enjoy the car as is and maybe concentrate on styling.
