    Hi, i would like to introduce Suki.

    Hi, i would like to introduce Suki, She is a 2000 V6 WRX STi Type R Coupe, She's magnificent, just awesome to drive.
    Here are some of the features of this car
    WRX STi Type R Japanese Specs, The STi is far from standard
    Forged Molybdenum Coated Alloy Pistons, Sodium Filled Exhaust Valves, Hollow Inlet Valves Deal With The Higher Revs & Greater Heat
    Metal Gaskets & Heat Proof Red Coated Manifold
    Reinforced Larger Intercooler, Intercooler Water Spray, Revised Larger Intake Manifold, Teflon Coated IHI VF28 Turbo-Charger @ 16.8 Psi
    Larger Capacity Exhaust System
    STi Quick Ratio Power Steering, 4 Pot Ventilated Front Brakes, 2 Pot Rear Ventilated Brakes
    Titanium Strut Brace by FHI Aerospace Division, Alloy Suspension Arms To Reduce Unsprung Weight, Inverted Strut Suspension
    STi Double Pressure Heavy Duty Clutch, Reinforced Rear Axle
    Close Ratio Gear Box
    The STi type R coupe has a viscous limited slip differential in the front axle. An electronically controlled differential in the centre which can be altered from free to 100% locked. Also a 4 way 2 pinion mechanical differential in the rear.
    Horsepower figures
    280 hp at 6500 rpm and 260 lb-ft of torque at 4000 rpm (100 RON)
    206kW at 6500rpm and torque 353Nm at 4000rpm (100 RON)
    Versus 160kW at 5600rpm and 290Nm at 4000rpm for the std WRX
    Compression Ration 8.0:1
    1-100km/h in 4.9 seconds (100 RON)
    16 Inch Rays Lightweight Racing Gold Alloy Wheels
    Roof Air Vent, Full Sti Spoilers, Including Front, Rear Spoiler, Side Skirts
    STi Blue Racing Seats, Leather MOMO (Airbag) Steering Wheel & Gear Knob
    STi Hot White Dials in a Blue Dash Panel and Blue Fascia Panels, STi Limited 346/1000 Plaque / Subaru WRC Limited Edition

    The factory STi computer is excellent, but has 3 shortcomings.
    1st - it is tuned for 100 RON fuel, I use BP Ultimate 98.
    2nd - it is tuned extremely safely and runs very rich.
    3rd - it has factory limiters - 180k speed, revs, power.

    Enkei 17" Racing Alloy's with Toyo R888 Tyres

    EBC GD Slotted Front Rotors with EBC Yellow Stuff Brake Pads Front and Rear

    This is where subaru fell short with the 2011 STI sedan! They should have made a 2 door version...
    Nice car dude, 2 door FTW!!!

    Like life, fashions tend to go in cycles, coupe's will come back and FHI will once again attack the WRC with a Subaru.
    I wanted a V8 coupe and was gutted they stopped making coupes at V6. I looked at quite a few Type R's but they were all modified with either FMIC's, body kits or V7 engine transplants then 2 years ago i came across this fresh factory standard import and wow i've never been so lucky in all my life.
    I'm one very happy Subie owner.

    V6 = Version 6

    V6 = Version 6 last of the classic or original shape impreza, mine has a 1994 cc boxer engine and VF28 Turbo.
    V7 the new improved faster stronger Bugeye, V8 V9 V10 Hawkeye.
    What version is yours ?
    Or is the term version not used, perhaps version is just used down here in the underworld as the Subies main competition are Mitzi Evo's and they use a similar numerical designation.
    I'm no subie expert or historian, i have tried to learn about the WRC Limited Edition models but have found very little on them.
    If any of you know the history or specs of these cars or can suggest where i could look i would be very grateful.

    Ok quickie lesson for some of the peeps who dont understand the earlier generation GC8 "classic" impreza's

    The "classic" had many a variation of STI's called version 1 thru version 6 in Japan. so when Wayne here says a V6 impreza he doesnt mean its a V6(as in a engine) he is meaning its the Version 6 incarnation of the classic impreza or the last of the classic generation before the bugeye came out.

    Japanese-spec

    * Version I (10/92 08/94) - GC8A/B
    * Version II (09/94 08/96) - GC8C
    * Version III (09/96 08/97) - GC8D
    * Version IV (09/97 08/98) - GC8E
    * Version V (09/98-08/99) - GC8F
    * Version VI (09/99-08/00) - GC8G

    Nice read:
