    Have the Borla Hush on the new wagon too and really like it so far. How did the sway bar install go?
    Havent done the sway bar yet. Everything looks identical under there, so, should fit fine.
    I may wait a few thousand miles just to make sure something in the suspension was put together stupidly at the factory so I can make use of the warranty just in case.... JUST in case.

    OH, and I gotta say, the hush is nice on this thing. Looks great and really sound mean when you open it up. Sounds definitely deeper than the 2.0l

    Do you have any pics of your ride? What color? Black was going to be my second choice

    Definitely. The torque hits sooner and stronger. That gives your shifts more use because you start out each gear nearer the peak torque... i.e. acceleration is notably quicker than my '04. 2500 rpm on up you defintely feel more pull

    Test drive one - it will sell itself.

    I dont know of specific times ---

    Now, others can correct me if I am wrong, but...
    The 2.0 WRX was rated in various places near 6.2 seconds for 0 - 60.

    The 2.5 FORESTER XT was rated something like 5.5 0 - 60mph.

    Seeing how the forester driveline is basically in the WRX now, and I believe the weight in the WRX is a bit lighter than the forester (I THINK... AGAIN, if someone has access to real numbers, go for it - I'm tied up working right now), so, I would think it might be a near the same as the forester, assuming the gearing wasn't changed much

    Depends all on the driver... here is another quote about the '06
    "Being able to go marginally faster (0-60 mph now should now take 5.5 seconds and top speed is about 145 mph) "

    And for the 2005

    "2005 Subaru Impreza AWD WRX (4dr Wagon)
    Transmission: Automatic, Engine: 2.00L, Cyl: 4, Hp: 227, 0-60 time: 6.90, MPG: 19"

    Just got back from lunch... up to 491 miles... hehe...
    I think it might have the same gear ratios but the final drive is now 3.70 or something like that. so all gears would be taller than before
