my names adam, im 25 & for the last three years ive been driving a classic impreza sti running 320 bhp. i sold that a month ago and am now unsure as to what to buy. ive got my eye on a few fq 400's but the ones im looking at are about 20k. what i want to know is - if i was to buy a fq 300,320 how much would it take to get the same performance? or should i just get the 400 to save hassle? all advice welcome and thanks for your time :smthumbup

To get 400 bhp and similar torque from an MR FQ300 would cost in the region of £1,500.

A clutch capable of repeated launching would be around £1,400 fitted.

Brake set up would be several thousand for a big brake kit or around £1,000 for keeping standard Brembo calipers with uprated discs, pads and hoses all around.

Carbon bits would be around £1,000.

The FQ400 has a forged engine capable of much more than 400 bhp, whereas the standard MRs start to get a bit risky at around 400 bhp. To forge the engine would cost you several thousand.
