    Handaling wise mitzu killed subaru. The evo already out handles the sti even the non mr version and now they have to make it handle better. Its going to be hard for subaru to catch up as far as handaling wise.

    That is just a load of BS. Dealers don't know **** about the "next big things" until right about the time we know. Now if someone from Subaru Corporate started leaking info, then that might be more plausible.

    Still, a WRX as powerful as the current STi? Not going to happen due to various regulations and restrictions (CAFE?) Is the WRX magically going to stay at the same price as the current model? I wouldn't believe any of that crap until you hear it from Subaru.

    all sti needs is a lowered price, and with all the money we saved, we can get practically free mods... OEM stuff is POS anyways...

    subaru is indeed going to produce a spec c to compete with the mr; however, it's only going to be in jdm....no word on whether we'll see it here state-sides
    k&n, sti-hoodscoop, engine mounts, & tranny mount, blitz dtt, catless up-pipe, samco ic hose, greddy CC, cusco f/r swaybars, gutted midpipe, oil cooler, prodrive exhaust & f/r replica sti strut tower bar, gunmetal rota tarmac, goodridge ss lines, p'n'p exhaust manifold

    deny the fly-by

    2.5l engine
    twinscroll manifold & turbo
    8k redline
    fmic wrc style (cooler & little lag)
    6spd w/ slightly better gear spacing
    quicker steering

    f- softening up anything for us fat, lazy murricans and just keep it light & tight.

    do this, while having 'sti' offer mopar-like staged packages that add substantial benefits and are backed by the factory.

    this is waaaayyyyy wishful thinking

    Logically what I think is more feasible is to ship the WRXs with PPP ( prodrive performance pack ). I used to live in London about a year ago and most cars there were sold with PPP. Thats like 30 whp with basic mods. I think this is likely only because Subie has been doing this forever in other countries.

    As far as performance improvement... I dont think Subie even has an answer to mitsu active-yaw.

    Not sure if it is equivalent to Mitsu's AYC but the 2005 STi has a new yaw-rate sensor in the DCCD. Not sure exactly how it works though...
