Ok so I have a few questions of concern and would like some help.
Been a Mr2 Turbo owner for years and built 3 and ready to move onward to a new engine.
Track rolls my 300whp Mr2 has smacked the hell out of some bugeyes so kinda of skeptical.
There are 3 02 bugeyes and 2 03 bugeyes and one 06 Sti that have caught my eye in my price range.
1st question what is the insurance like on the wrx and sti? No accidents or tickets. Arizona is the state and even get a military discount I go threw Progressive. ANSWERED STI $160m about $850 for 6m WRX/BUGEYES $120m about $715 for 6m These are rates with $500 deducts and loan payoff if totaled.
2nd I know the outer differences in the 06 STI and the 02/03 wrx's but what are the internals are they all forged? (I know I dropped a pretty penny to get forged internals for my MR2 main reason for asking.)
3rd What is the power difference in the STI and earlier WRX? also are there different Transmission Gears?
4th What are they're Reliability? millage wise and are they tolerant to abuse at stock levels or is it best to never hard launch?
5th Millage wise What would be the points to start replacing the timing belt and other services and there average cost?
6th and final for now.
Please no ( why can't your use the search?) (Gah another forum noob!!)
I plan on being a contributor just like I was in the MR2OC MR2 forum and I was shown nothing but allot of help and gave the same back!
