So I'm getting ready to deploy and when I get back, I'm looking into getting a Subaru. A bit of an upgrade from my speed3. You can have 385 whp all day but if you can't lay it down clean, there's no point in having it. So I came to you guys cause I know you are the real Subaru enthusiasts. I don't wanna hear bull **** numbers from a dealership. I want you guys to break it down for me. I'm 21, married and the wife is starting to talk about having kids. I want either a new WRX or maybe an older STi for the space. I was considering going with an EVO but the back seat and trunk space is miserable. I don't wanna give up a lot of power, which is why I'm not gonna go with a used WRX. My Mazda was nice, 263 from the factory and I went big with upgrades. Not gonna be going as big as I did. Maybe, an intake exhaust and tune. Or even just an intake and straight pipes. So for the price range, what do you think is gonna be better? Am I gonna be giving up too much power by going to a WRX? What are the pros and cons to each?
Thanks in advance guys!
