2.0i STi Type R Import

Subaru Impreza 2 Door Type R 1997 to 2000

In 1997, Subaru introduced the 2-door coupe model, called the Type-R. used for homologation purposes, the Type-R was the basis for the Subaru World Rally Car during the late 90's Rally Championship. Mechanically, the Type-R received a shorter ratio gear box, an automatic intercooler water spray (triggered by the ECU, or manually via a switch on the dashboard), 2-pot rear brakes, and was stripped of its ABS and stereo, in an effort to reduce weight and shed items not need for the conversion to group-N rally cars.
