    subaru sti esx question

    Hello guys, I am Tom, a new member of this forum. I just find out about the ESX STI

    I would like to ask that if the STI is modified to 400HP+ like the ESX, will it affect the life time ( realiable) of the car alot? I am really appreciate if some one can give me an answer!! ( plan to get ESX stage 3).

    ESX models are generally wastes of money. If you see one for sale, don't offer much more than you would for a normal, stock STI.

    If we actually knew what "stage 3" is, we might have been able to answer your question. But generally the parts they use are not the greatest.

    Thanks for your answer. Stage 3 is they can add 150hp more to the stock STI. I just wonder about the life span of the car when they can make the car stronger alot with this small engine ( 4 cylinders).

    Universal Truth: Take a motor from the factory, modify it in the after market to make more power than the engineers originally intended and you have just decreased it's reliability/life span.

    About the ESX, listen to brfatal, he's right.
