Way too little to remember? In '92 or '93? Sheesh! :)

I don't feel like I got real head snap sensation in my WRX 'til I went to stage 2. Can't say about the STi, never driven one...

Launching at 4500 to 5 grand on the Sti will snap your head back. Viciously. Pulling out at wot usually starts off with lag then at above 3000 rpms the boost kicks in and pushes you into the seat. Not like v8 snap but gradual push you into seat type of feeling. But mine is stock. Mods will definitely snap your neck.

Ya man theres nothing like hitting boost. Its a little different than a supercharger. A supercharger is a gradually stronger and stronger pull. A turbo is all at once and hard. Its great.

give it a good launch and your neck will hurt the next morning :D
Yes, there is NOTHING else like an all wheel drive turbo launch. Your neck will snap back and the rest of your body will be tucked into your seat.:D Good.Clean.Fun!:D :D :D
