Hello, new to the board. I've gone from a Grand Am (16.2@83) to a Tiburon (15.6@89), but I've always had my eye on the WRX Wagon. The entire concept of a small wagon that is that fast...well...let's just say it might be my dream car. Anyway, right now I'm about $9,000 upside down on my Tiburon, so I'm probably about a year away, but I really want one of the '06 Wagons because of the 2.5 in them.
I'm wondering what the difference is between the powertrain in the WRX and the STI for '06? I'm assuming a lesser turbo, and I've heard something about an inferior tranny in the WRX? My ultimate goal would be to have a 12 second wagon, and that seems pretty attainable from what I've read. Am I right?
BTW, this seems like a great community, far more mature than www.newtiburon.com.
