Hello! Currently I am looking for a early 2000's WRX STi, I am looking to get rid of my 1999.5 B5 Audi A4 1.8TQM (fully built car, pushing 400 horses), and am looking to trade. I went to look at a STi today (2004 Subaru Impreza WRX STi Sedan NEED GONE THIS WEEKEND - Calgary Cars For Sale - Kijiji Calgary Canada.) and it looked pretty clean, but the millage concerns me... When do these cars start to eat the dirt? I am an Audi/VW guy and these cars are completely new to me.
I can't seem to tell if the car was beat on at all, it was owned by the guy who runs the local WRX shop in Calgary (VEX) originally. Apparently injector one and two are "dirty" and are making the car idle surge a little bit. I've never heard of such a thing, but is it plausible?
What is the maximum power the stock internals can run? I like having a 350-400hp daily driver, and after rebuilding the motor in my A4 I never want to do that again.
Funnest test drive ever by the way, got pulled over by the cops!
