    what changed?

    my understanding is that from 02-04 the wrx hade some turbo lag problems. when i got my car the sales guy told me that for 05 there were some improvements made to what ever it is, and the turbo now spools up at 3000 rpm. can any one tell me what the subaru tecnicions did for 05?

    First I would recommend trying a SEARCH because there's tons of information available to you that has already been discussed time and time again.

    But here's some link to help you:
    Difference in model years
    Subaru Model Info

    And please read these:
    Everything you want to know about Subarus and ClubWRX

    Ironically.. the sales guy lied .....there is really no difference between wrx's as far as spool time between 02-05.....the 06-07's however are running a different block which allows them to spool faster than previous years....

    yea ok i can search for it, but getting input from other people and reading what you have to say about it, is much more valuble to me. Im here to gain information about my car from other car owners. so if you are going to reply to one of my posts with look it up, please dont reply at all.

    thanks robman. thats the kind of information i am looking for. but i still cant get it out of my head that something changed for 05. it is prolly just beacuse i have an 05 and want it to be diffrent than previous years.

    02-03 are pretty much identical(less some tranny fixes, and an illuminated key ring)

    04-05 are pretty well identical, maybe different option choices but thats it

    Just a note about forums in general:

    We have a search function because almost anything you are going to ask has been covered in previous posts. Searching keeps the forums tidy and less cluttered. I'm not flaming you but other people probably will (and that pretty much goes for any forum, not just teh club).

    First of all, I was merely suggesting NICELY that you use the SEARCH function prior to posting because all this information has been answered before and it will save you from the flamings.

    Second of all, I did answer your question NICELY in a series of very useful links (i.e. I did what you should have done).

    A mere "THANKS" would have sufficed.

    Your '05 is the same basic driveline as an 02-04.
