There's several ways to improve engine performance.
You can change internal engine parts(crankshaft, camshaft, piston, rods, valves, gasket,block) the air intake(filter, piping) the exhaust, turbocharging (although i don't know how good it would be since it is an aspirated engine) and there are more.
This is something that requires money, time and expertise.
You can do some of the modifications by yourself, you can start by upgrading your air intake, but other modifications require engineering expertise to be sure what the engine can still handle and how can it be upgraded.

Fuel gauge does
hi it can really only be two things, first is the fuel sender on the pump inside the tank it could be stuffed or sticking causing a false reading, second it can also be a faulty fuel gauge on the dash.

I was wondering if you
If your planning on installing on of those so called chips, don't bother. It is just a .25 cent resistor that will cause more issues in the long run. Trust me on this one.

I have Subaru Impraza 07. In last couple of weeks
This is most likely detonation (aka pinging, or pre-ignition knock), a condition caused by the fuel igniting before the spark occurs at the spark plug. The "knock" sensors in the heads are designed to control this effect but sometimes if you get a fill of bad fuel (fuel with a low octane rating), the sensors are unable to cope. Other causes are...
1. Bad spark plugs
2. Build up of carbon deposit in combustion chambers
3. Turbo boost set too high
(a) Avoid (at all cost) hard acelleration until all this fuel is used
(b) Add a fuel octane improver such as Mythyl Benzine
(c) Quickly get a fill of premium unleaded fuel.

I have a 2007 subaru impreza and the steering
hey lowering the car has alot to do with the way the car steers... a wheel alingment usualy will only adjust to suite your tyres, if you have lowered your vehicle it will effect your bumpsteer etc.. im guessing that it is worse when you brake? to fix this problem you are best to let your mechanic know that it has been lowered and is now not steering correctly and ask if there are any other parts that need to be replaced to compensate the vehicles height, unfortunately when playing with ride height you often are required to replace more than just springs.

Popping noise in rear suspension
Check the rear anti roll bar end links. This is a common item to fail as the originals were plastic !
If they are worn my advice is to replace them with some aluminum ones that come with nylon urethane bushes.
