    540? That is a lot higher than I thought. That is pretty sweet. The Cobras really aren't that much more expensive than STis. I sold my STi with 24k on it for $23,500 and bought my Cobra with 115 miles on it for 26,600 from a dealership. Plus it is winter time and the with the GT500 coming out the Cobras will come down even more.

    I posted that info for the original poster, since the Legacy runs a 2.5 platform also, but with a smaller turbo and different gearing than the STi. In stage 2 form, the Legacy puts out about the same HP but more torque than a stock STi. Gearing will be a decider in a rolling run between a stock STi and stock 05 GT, imho.

    Keep in mind that the MT has a 3:55 gear and the Auto has 3:31 gears. Both are 5 speeds. Of course, its no real problem to switch em to 4.10 or such...

    Well I still like the STI alot better..even if it gets passed by a stang
    Why not have both?

    If I lived somewhere that I could drive it year round, I probably would have bought an 03-04 Cobra rather than a WRX.

    I'm surprised at the numbers claimed for a Whipple GT. Really I am just surprised that the internals can handle that much power. 03-04 Cobras are all forged and can handle quite a bit of power, but I would think that the GT motor is just a grenade waiting to happen.

    Do what I did, sell the subie, buy a Cobra, and then buy a cheap SUV for winter driving. I am paying less money for the car and insurance on both vehicles than I was for the STi alone.

    I thought about that. But I want to keep my 91 Mustang. Its so hard to find a nice one nowadays that I don't want to lose it to some tool who will mess it all up. Plus I love the car.

    2 toy cars is a hard thing to sell to my fiance.

    I had a feeling this post would pop up at some point. What were guys saying about the V8 boys again. lol

    Hey douschebag, any time you want to come to CT you can bring that attitude to my sucky stang. As a matter of fact, I may be in Chicago next year for a Bears game. Sorry but your Rex ain't going to do anything unless it is snowing.
