I know I'll get a lot of crap for posting this, but:
I'm sure it will be hard for me to get an UN-biased opinion, but nonetheless I'd like to try.
First my background:
I currently have a 2008 WRX 4EAT ...lots of upgrades and goodies added, but not much on the engine...intake, cat-back exhaust, pro-tune.
0-60 5.6 sec.
1/4 mile 13.8@100MPH
Stock turbo running at 17PSI
Car is running great...no issues...body or mechanical. 50K miles on it.
Admittedly...I'm REALLY craving a dual clutch setup (No VW GTI for me...can't give up AWD)
No, I don't drive a stick... Call me a poseur all you want...I can take it.
I was THINKING of trading it in for a 2012 Ralliart. again.
I'd like to try something different. Shhhh...no hateful comments...I know I know.
Anyway...I'd like to get a general consensus on durability and reliability on the engine, trans, and turbo in this configuration. I would probably leave most of the car alone, but add an intake, cat-back exhaust, and get a tune again...same as my WRX. Would my numbers be comparable after that? Do you think this would be a good trade? Are there known issues with the trans? (heard some rumors) And no, I don't race or autocross, but I don't baby my car either.
The Mitsu dealer already offered me between 17K-18K for my car.
Any thoughts??? Please don't just shout out a bunch of 'I hate Mitsubishi' comments.
