    05 sti vs 04 sti

    well last weekend me and my friend decided to go out and do a couple pulls, i wanted to see the difference in modifcation and how much power they gave my friends 04 sti. here the mods

    04 sti: headers,kn intake, and a turbo back

    05 sti: hks cat back

    we did a couple runs, the first was a second gear pull and did three honks and went. i jumped a littel but in front for like a second buy the time we shifted to third he passed me and kept going, pulling hard to about he had car by 4

    then a roll from first, that time i got walked on i shut down by third cause there was no hope, it wasnt even close.

    i was amazed those mods made a nice difference i have my kn intake in my car buy tusday so we will go again and see if that makes a diff, and as a mod we are goign to keep testing to see what the best mix of mods but if you looking for a quick sti compared to a stock headers kn intake and a turbo back, its awsome

    yea about the radio, it is so funny to look at all those littel diffs between them. like the sticker on the door of the 04 is longer then a 05 and stupid things like that. and as far as the heavy a$$ radio, well we have shaved windshilds so there

    Well, 95% the same car, but the 05s are definitely improved, just as I'm sure the 06s will be an improvement over the 05s. The 05s received a yaw-sensor, helical front diff, wider rims, beefier wheel hubs, aluminum lateral links, updated fuel delivery system, interior changes, stereo, revised steering rack, power steering oil cooler, more complex ECU (according to Cobb) and quite a few other small things.

    Coming from a Honda world, I'm not used to the changes Subaru makes year-to-year.

    Hey Digi, I know the changes. Thanks for repeating them again... I was just saying how some people make a bigger deal about one year over the other, that was all...

    Ps - I am also a Honda guys.... 91 Prelude Si & 00 Accord V6...

    well it wasnt about 04 vs 05 really. there reason i post this is because from those mild mods the difference is awsome thats all. i got the o5 because i had a 03 wrx and i didnt want to have the same dash and no radio.
