    Need alittle help

    Hey guys, I just Checked out the new 09 WRX lately and I am really debating on getting it or the MazdaSpeed 3.

    I have a couple of questions tho, maybe some of you may help me answer them, that would be awesome.

    Whats Different from the STI engine and the new 09 WRX?
    I heard the new WRX uses the same Turbo as the STI, is that true?
    Im also looking to push 350 whp on the WRX, you think the engine can handle it? or would i need to start renforcing some stuff?

    If anyone with knowledge of the car can fill me in that would be great. My friends been pushing me to get the STI but i think the 10k difference is to crazy and i put in better performance with that money. i just need some advice. Thanks

    Whats Different from the STI engine and the new 09 WRX? Heads and pistons.

    And no, $10k won't buy you the difference between an STI and a WRX.

    Look for an '08 STi, dealers are trying to move them off the lots to make room for the '10's. The ones by me are going for 29,000. With trade you're looking pretty good for a brand new STi.
