    I really want that paint code, so i can repaint mine to match. Otherwise i think my mods on my 04 STi will be fine for me to live with.

    Anyone know how much a full repaint with that color would cost?

    For the type-25 a twinscoll has a MUCH broader power curve. The last time I was in Malaysia I had the fortune to ride in a Spec C. After buying my beast I was astonished to feel the power difference, mine felt like a boggy limp noodle. Even on a mild launch the twinscroll wouldn't bog, The boost gauge would be in the positive region right after 2k, and it doens't fall on it's face at higher rpms either, that thing pulled like a monster all the way to redline.

    Is that writer from sportcompact car crazy? Calling the stock WRX drivetrain "reliable"? Does he know anything about our transmissions?

    Seriously though, I feel much better about not waiting for the STI to come out knowing that writers love souped up WRX's just as much as they do STI's.

    That STi looks sweet though. Damn that's a nice color and not to mention the wheels, brakes and front end. On second thought, I am pissed I didn't wait.
    My transmission hates me. So does my wife because of this car.

    I recollect reading Subaru does directly export to UK. Prodive imports Subaru and throws on the PPP.

    So STI+PPP = WR1

    Besides being smoking hot it also includes foglights, unlike the USDM STi brethren...

    Nothing big in alot of peoples eyes, but it adds to the great looks of the car

The only thing they do to make the extra HP is a "higher flow cat", a "sports" silencer, and an ECU tweak.
    The JDM STI is rated at 280hp.....but everyone knows that this is underrated from the factory. They tend to dyno near 260+whp .
