    Smile Possibly a new Subaru owner.

    Whats up guys! Im from northern california and was debating on buying and evo or sti. (I know what your thinking....buy a subaru!) I recently wrecked my 04 vw gli and Im just looking for another car. I was limited on my volkswagon and didn't get much help from forums on how to mod. I just need to know the ups and downs in owning a subaru. They're are to many evos in nor cal and growing up I've always liked them, all my friends have evos. Im not sure why but subies are defiantly starting to grow on me. The bottom line is I'm trying to see if I'm going to get a lot of help on this forum because I don't know any subarus in nor cal.

    Any tips would help on your experience on subies, thank you for your time.

    Welcome

    There are stickies at the top of each forum section, which give some good information. Spend some time perusing through the ones that seem to interest you. If you have questions after that, start a new thread in that section and ask away.

    My friend just bought a evo x gsr, he already blew out his clutch. If I were to go evo it would be the 8 or 9. Evos just seem easy to mod, theres a evo 8 and all he has is the under intercooler piping, evo 9 turbo, and tuned for e85. He smashes on muscle, I'm just trying to see how long it would take for a subaru to reach that level.

    If you want to hit the track and drive in a straight line really quickly, evo's are the way to go. They're built differently than the subaru's, they're made for the track. That doesn't mean that a STI can't reach evo's, but it'll take work to just catch up to a stock evo.

    I like evo's. I've driven a few (old, new, modded, stock) and I've enjoyed them in all forms. However every evo owner I know all have daily drivers and their cars are always in the shop (mostly for transmission or clutch issues) once you start modding them, they seem to be very unreliable but that can also go for modded sti's too

    Thats the thing, everyone is going to want to run in a straight line lol...but Im just trying to figure out how much time and work I will be working on a subaru.

    350HP at the crank and 350HP at the wheels are two completely different animals. 350hp is easily attainable with $1000 or less.

    Honestly, I bought a wrx so I wouldn't be in a straight line. Any moron can drive in a straight line, there is nothing difficult about it. Having a car that can drive a really fast quarter mile just says one thing, you're willing to drop a ton of cash into your car... The best thing for me is going to the track and seeing people who spend thousands of dollars in aftermarket parts and then run stock times on their cars because they're clueless. Lol, saw a Z06 blow his hood off with NO2 because he was an idiot

    Actually 12' STI's are faster in a straight line than a 12' evo x. The Evo x just does everything else better like handling, braking, and to most it even looks better than the Sti. The Evo is a much more superior track car.
