    evo is just cheaper to make faster, so that's the answer to your question. It's sad that you'd need a sti with a turbo upgrade to reach the power of a bolted on evo.

    I thought the evo and the sti were same power level and the evo cost more to upgrade to more power

    you thought wrong. I'd love to see a sti make over 300whp with just a tune.

    actually its alot cheaper to mod an Evo to make some really good power. Evos can run 11's with bolt-ons w/o turbo upgrade.

    The 4g63 engine is no joke. Talon's and 1+2g GSXs can get pretty fast...

    You don't see STis because we grew up and race on tracks.

    Evo wont make that power with just a tune. just had my sti tuned with downpipe and an evo with the same mods as me put down less than 300 whp on the dyno. your wrong, I saw it with my own eyes.

    i don't know if i can believe the only persons eyes i trust are Chuck Norris'

    I've seen a lot of fast evos and stis its all about how much you put into them to make them fast and with the evos it just takes less to make them faster

    Evo's are much better cars than wrx's.

    Even the STI won't match the evo's power mod for mod.

    evo9's easily 300whp with just a tune. Plus it also depends on the dyno.

    i drove my friends STI W/ turbo back, i also just have turbo back on my EVO, my car pulls better but he pulls on me on the freeway. Evo's are cheaper to tune but i wish my evo had that STI exhaust sound!

    Well...it's not unheard of. I wouldn't say "just a tune", but close. And yes definitely depends on the dyno. But most IXs need exhaust mods and boost control (ecu or otherwise, but even ecu boost requires minor modifications i.e. pill) to be in the ballpark of 300whp.
