2003 legacy LE power search
Posted 15 September 2003 - 01:18 PM
A new member here so I'm posting in all different forums. HA Anyway my wife and I just bought a 2003 LEgeacy LE with the crappy automatic. We really like the car but is a bit slow. I am trying to get a few more ponies out of her and someone suggested a K&N filter. IS there a real gain here ir is it all in the head of the K&N purchaser? Also, does anyone know of a co. that will reprogram the computer? And does it help? I want more power but don't want to loose mpg.

Thanks for the response. First of all...it is not a wagon. As God as my witness I am not a parent nor will I look like one driving around town. HAHA Anyway I only ask about the reprograming the computer because I read somewhere that they can change, as someone mentioned, the timing, fuel flow, air flow meters and shift points. It seems I am alone, however, in my quest to hop up my Legacy. Oh well, I guess I'll wait until the wife is done with it, retire it to my possesion and then have fun with turbo chargers. I knew I should have waited for the new Legacy Turbo... HAHAH

Somebody said something about an air filter system with a potential 15-20 hp gain...also a performance exhaust header would potentialy gain hp by 15-20.??? I called a while back....these numbers were guesses.
