    You do realize that In order to set it up for a drift car you will have to modify the Center diff at the least, correct? Also that it would be incredibly tough on the drive train, Being that its 2x the power its made for...any way, there is hardly any difference, just exterior and very minor things

    Please visit the STi forum and read the sticky on differences in model years.

    Also, as noted above, it will be a difficult car to setup for drifting (unless you are talking dirt or snow). It is, afterall, an AWD vehicle.

    Drift cars=RWD STI=AWD. The only STI that competes in drifting is a HEAVILY modified RWD conversion, where even the radiator has been moved to the trunk, and ducts cut into the sides of the bodywork.

    And if I recall correctly, replaced the entire drivetrain from the tranny on back.

    A 90-94 Nissan 240SX coupe would be the better choice. Go find ANY drifting contest on TV and you probably won't see many (or any for that matter) AWD cars, but you will see plenty of 240SXs both S13 (90-94 coupes and hatches) and S14 (95-98) competing. If you are lucky enough to live in a country where they have the S15 (99-on) Silvia, those are a very good choice as well.
