USDM GC-body Impreza had 4 engines
1.8NA 110hp or so --base model
2.2NA 130?hp or so --later year base model
2.5NA DOHC 165hp --2.5RS 1998
2.5NA SOHC 165hp --2.5RS 1999-2001

US Impreza is the only Impreza in the world that had 2.5 liter engine, and the only model that had hood scoop in NA.

JDM GC had
1.5NA
2.0NA
2.0turbo (WRX) 280hp in the later model

Exteriorwise, US 2.5RS is almost exactly like JDM GC8F (ver5).
US 2.5RS got JDM ver5 front face with JDM ver4 grill, ver4 headlight, and ver4 rear spoiler.
You can't really compare the engine because JDM has 115hp more than US models.

USDM 2.5RS coupe was introdeced in 1999 I think so look don't look for 1998.

US 2.5RS history
1998 JDM NA front bumper (non-WRX), gold JDM GC8E,F wheels. Only sedan
DOHC 2.5NA
1999 JDM ver5 looking, silver JDM GC8E,F WRX 5spoke rims, coupe added
SOHC 2.5NA from this year
2000 same as 1999 except it's got silver JDM GC8G WRX 6spoke rims, I think LSD came standard from this year
2001 same as 2000

no, I don't know who's GC8 that is.
Mine is GF8 oldschool white wagon with gold speedline rims. Have you seen me? and have I seen you at school or something?

Ooops seems like I was confused about sedan and coupe thing.
I need sleep, damn finals.
Yeah only coupe was available at the launch.
