    I'm back

    Hi everybody
    I bought my second subaru after 3 years. First one was a 2002 STI ...bug eye and stage2 modified. It was perfect but was too hard for me. I couldn't suffered and sold it. For tree years I'm missing its increadable acceleration. At last I bought 2006 2.5 STI again . Its stock but enough for me.
    I've 2 questions :
    1- If you compare 2.0 STI and 2.5 STI. Which one is better. I know 2.5 has more power and tork. But I heard that 2.0 has more forget parts in it and gives better responce for modifiying. Is it true? Is it stronger than 2.5 ?
    2- On 6.gear with 3000 rpm 2002 STI was making 100 kmh , 2006 makes 130 kmh. HUGE difference ha? First day I didn't use 6.gear because 5.gear of 2006 is equals to 2002 STI's 6. gear. I red too many reviews about the differences between 2002 and 2006. But I didn't see this huge difference. What do you think about it?
    Finaly sorry for my poor english

    My guess is that he meant "forged" parts. Engrish FTW.

    If the 2002 STi has the EJ207 that we still have today, I do believe it did have more forged internals than the EJ257 plus an 8000 redline IMO a better engine. But the EJ22G from the S22B with it's fully closed deck WAYYY better
