    That's not fact, plus depending on the driver and wrx's glass tranny you might be needing a tranny within 12k.


    oh and elmer, that's impressive. My point is you need a turbo upgrade to compete with ms3 with a few mods.

    should be fun, i havent been in years. last time I was 18 and had a chevelle. slightly different now 8 years later, with the sti. for only 20 bucks you can run all night, should make for a good time. it's in epping, new hampshire if any new englanders want to come.

    well the MS3 is going to have more HP.
    2.3L direct injected, right?

    it's not a great comparison, but i got my wrx for 12400 with 50k miles on it.
    Major mods:
    Code:
    VF30	$300.00	Sways	$280.00
    Pinks	$300.00	Brakes	$500.00
    EBCS	$90.00	Tires	$400.00
    UP	$50.00	Struts	$300.00
    DP	$400.00	Springs	$230.00
    CB	$200.00	Tophats	$40.00
    Pulley	$35.00	mounts	$65.00
    FP	$75.00	Trans	$4,500.00
    Tactrix	$90.00	DCCD	$275.00
    Tune	$500.00		
    TB work	$150.00		
    	$2,190.00	$6,590.00
    Total cost: $8780+$12400=$21180

    Worth it to me, as the build was where the fun was... driving it is just a bonus

    i dunno, I may be out of it, but I don't think it'd be too fun to work on the ms3.

    thats cool and i'm glad your happy with your car. Yeah you can definitely beat a stock ms3 but with a few mods i bet that ms3 is right up your a$$ or passing you again.

    meh, doubt it. I'll just turn on the meth, turn the DCCD down and blow past it as it snow plows through the next turn

    I gotta say AwdTurboWrx has spoken the truth..and pretty much everything that was said against his argument made his point for him..it takes alotta balls to basically say the ms3 is somewhat betta than the same car he owns..

    all the bickering and pissing matches here remind me of when I was a part of the honda community. Honda-tech was the worst for that kind of thing
