    1. both the wrx and sti both have hood scoops

    2. which years are you talking about? there are major diffrenced between the diffrent body styles.
    - '02-'03 didnt have a usdm STI
    - '04-'05 wrx: td04 turbo, 5 speed tranny, no lsd, smaller scoop ej205 block
    STi: vf39 turbo, 6 speed tranny, lsd, larger scoop, larger top mount intercooler, larger injectors, bigger fuel pump, ej257 block
    - '06-'07 WRX: everything is the same but now has 2.5 block
    - '08-'09 WRX: gains vf94 turbo

    any major diffrences im missing, please fill in!

    well, we need a little bit more information than that.

    1) how many miles
    2) is it stock?
    3) how is the carfax?
    4) how much is it?

    etc. etc.

    no 02-03 usdm STi's. so you can't really compare the 02-03 to an STi. but if your trying to take this bugeye and make it an STi, its not worth it go buy an STi.

    Carfax is only as honest as the previous seller. If they don't report the accident to DMV, it won't show up on Carfax.

    Before you buy it have a compression/leak down test done.

    03 is the best year of the bugeye. Mileage is normal for that. This past July I sold my 03 bugeye with 62,000 miles on it for 14,000 so...

    you can buy the spoiler or you can trade trunks with someone if they have the same color.


    you can also buy an sti-replica hood scoop.
