I drive past this sexy 2005 STi EVERY morning on my way to college. It has this orgasmic rumble to it that I am just drawn to, it's honestly one of the reasons why I like Subaru > Any other imports out there. The STi doesn't have that typical ricer, fart can, weed whacker sound you know? It has a low RUMBLE to it, I'm a big fan of the V8's roar and I gotta say, the 2.5 4 banger Boxer of the STi, is just as lovely sounding, it's so unique
So now here's my questions, I want to buy an Impreza. Either an '02-'03 or '04-'05 WRX. I can't afford an STi so I'll settle for the next best thing Now I am aware that the WRX has a 2.0L instead of the 2.5L that the STi has correct? (I've never owned a Subaru so correct me if I'm wrong I am curious about 2 things.
1. Does the WRX still have the Boxer, horizontally opposed pistons that the STi has? What's the difference between the two? (besides the size lol)
2. I know that there's obviously a .5L difference in the size of the engine, So would the WRX have more of a weed whacker, fart can sound like the other 4 bangers have? Or will it still have the unique sound that the STi has that I see on my way to college?
I'm also REALLY into adding things to cars What mods should I consider? Obviously I don't want the stock muffler/exhaust right?
Sorry for this weird jumbled post, I was just curious, since there aren't any comparison videos on YouTube/Google search and you guys (usually) own Subaru's so where better to look
