In the UK it's called the FQ - 300and who knows maybe we will get the 300hp version of the EVO, i forget what it's called but they do have one
on a side note I wass watching "Who am I" last night with my g/f and we both decided that the EVO 5in the movie looks much better then the current EVO 8
You still have the WRX's glass transmission. The STi is worth the money for that alone, not to mention all the other heavy duty parts.The STi tends to end up with quicker 1/4 miles times in testing but the Evo does better in the actual driving tests. Personally I'd get a regular WRX, for $2000 in engine upgrades and $1500 in suspension, you have a better performer than both. Its so close no matter what you chose though.....
The 2.5rs was a solid car until you try to do stuff to it. The best Idea people have is to swap in the EJ22T from the USDM turbo legacy and either the corresponding transmission or a stronger STi or MRT transmission. The 2.5RS just wasn't built to have serious power put through it. Throwing a turbo on a 2.5 is a huge mistake I've seen a few people make.I'll be perfectly honest though, give me a 2000 2.5rs and $10,000 to play with though over both the Evo and the Sti. Seriously, the coupe rules.
TragiCOn California 91 octane, the STi detonates/pings audibly between 4000 and 4500RPM. This is very surprising and somewhat discouraging for a stock car and is the first order of business for our upgrade package. Our out-of-state affiliates have also noticed similar detonation tendencies on 93 octane.
I agree man Cobra or Vette for meNiether!! I would never pay $30,000+ for a 4 cylinder car! Unless its a luxury car and even then most of the luxury cars are 6 cylinders. For the same price you can get a 2003 Cobra, or a slightly used C5 Corvette. That is just my opinion, I know I will get flamed for saying that, but I don't care. There is no replacement for displacement!!
everyone is welcome to their opinions. mine just happens to be that i prefer a car that can go fast AND handle. as for the corvette... well i wouldn't buy a car that impractical. i need cargo space as well as passenger space so a two seater would never do.Niether!!
