Is it possible to twin-turbo a Subaru Impreza? This 2.5 RS says yes. | #FastFriday

There’s a saying that goes, “If it’s worth doing, it’s worth overdoing,” and we think that was the driving force behind Kendall Samuel’s 600-horsepower, twin-turbocharged Subaru 2.5 RS recently entered in the Tire Rack Ultimate Track Car Challenge.

What is the Tire Rack Ultimate Track Car Challenge? It’s our annual no-holds-barred track competition. The only rules: Car and driver must pass a NASA safety inspection.

Here’s a closer look at this week’s selections:

Aside from the turbos, Kendall Samuel’s 2000 Subaru Impreza 2.5 RS also features a number of custom parts built in-house, like coil-overs, a wide body, aero and brakes.

Dan Raver takes “street-legal race car” to a new level with a literal street-legal race car, a Superlite SL-C. Power comes from an LS7 good for 650 horsepower.

Reliability and simplicity are the names of the game when comes to Devan Keeling’s 1996 Ford Mustang GT–though we think the 8000 rpm Aluminator XS V8 engine certainly helps, too.

The only way they can make power. They must weld the heads on to keep head gaskets from shooting out under the car.
