    Subaru only brought over a limited number of STi's because it is a "limited edition". The Evo is not a limited run type car, it is a "normal edition" car in Mitsu's lineup.

    Hate to burst your bubble but according to all the magazines I've read, Evo beats the STi everytime (even though it's a slim margin). So I don't understand how you can say the STi is a "better" car. As far as reliability, we have yet to prove that either.

    But yah, I would take either car in a heartbeat.

    I don't think the Evo will turnout to be reliable at all. After all, the evo is running 19.5 pounds of boost! that is just asking for some kind of breakdown in the future. On the other hand, the Sti is running much less boost, so it should prove to be more reliable in the end.

    Hrmm this logic is not good. Just because you run more boost doesn't mean your car will blow up or be for the worse. The evo engines are very strong and they only hold 19 psi for a little bit and taper off. I believe reliability will lie in more then just boost levels. I would say the major factor is how the car is tuned and just making sure you prevent detonation I think it was a local tuner that said it best.... the evo engines are better to throw more boost at while the subaru boxer engines are better to advance the timing on. They are just quarks for each type of motor, one likes boost the other likes timing.

    Yeah...well I dont think thats true. I live near a huge mitsu dealer and they had lots of evos...and now they have even more evos ...not selling too well or something dunno. But price factor was in there for me. The evo was 3k cheaper...I was looking for a WRX to buy when i got my EVO, and the EVo was just a step higher, so I decided to go Evo. If I was looking to buy an evo, and then couldn't find one, but found a STi, I prolly would have bought the STi.

    4G63 has been in use for a while now. More boost doesn't necessarily mean it is less reliable than the Sti either. I just think the Sti is better built when it comes down to it.
    This car is making a poor man even poorer.

    The 4g63 is simply a better motor than the STi ej25. It's been proven time and time again it has superior detonation suppression, and has a bullet proof iron block which can hold alot of horses. I've also heard alot of bad things about the ej25 open block designs.

    WAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA, ok The Sti Does look better IMHO.

    Depends, I see just as Many Scoobys in Jersey as I do Evos. Evos are rare in this country, only a run of 6,000 or less, not many for 1 year, but they are out there.


    Evo VIII's are in the 10's and 9's so far.

    WRX's are in the 8's right now. I don't think STi's have broken 10's yet though.

    Actually, I drove the STi and the Evo, and the Evo handled miles better than the STi (in my eyes). It was kind of odd. Although the STi is by NO means a bad handler (obviously), the Evo was faster (well - it actually has faster steering) and it just handled like it was on rails. No touch of understeer like the STi! So...honestly, I'm not surprised. I preferred the Evo over the STi.

    Sorry.

    Either or

    You can't gp wrong with either, both the EVO and STI are awesome and have there own characteristics in handling. EVO is cheaper and proven to be great, and STI is building it self that way.

    If I were to get one, the EVO gets slightly better mpg for about the same performance (romping around on the WRX gets less than 9 mpg). IMO it's more fun to drive too. Also, real rally enthusiasts go for regulated 2.0 engines Although, the 2.5 engine on the STI sounds soooo nice.
