ROCHEMANsweet forester!! ya i dont think the evo is bad and i like the fact you can get it in an auto but the intero in the evo besides the seats i hear is crappy for how much it cost not that the sti and wrx inteors and really nice ether but there defently a bit nicer. the evo is probly a better car if you really want to turn it into a sright line monster. but from what i hear the subarus are better for every day use and in terms of being a rally car the subaru has alot more championships under its hood. i would agree the the evo also has more tech but the new wrx sti has alot more stuff that might make it quicker on the track like a stiffer chassi.
if someone wanted to give me ethier of the two i more then happly take the evo or the wrx but if i had my choice it would have to be the wrx
nice replys guys
and im loving that forster
Peach.This is one of my dream swaps. How hard was it? Is the drivetrain stock? Is it the shit?
And I'll always be a Subaru fanboi. The 04 STI will always be the best realistically-attainable car to me.
it was a bitch and kinda didn't plan on doing it, but my old Ej25 let go so my mechanic gave me a good deal on it, and i already had the cobb tuner so it was just drop and play. but its more of a sti forester hybrid motor because i kept my heads for the sake of saving money on the tune. i chose to keep my 4eat in the foz just because i have a few manual cars and i don't like driving them all the time as a daily. so drive train is all stock but i do have wrx struts on there as of now.. looking into bagging it for the sake of being able to rally it at time but have it low every other time.
messplayMy $0.02 that is worth $10,000.00.
Why would you get an STi. Why? Ask yourself, is it the badge? It is the fact that it is an STi?? Subaru rocks at AWD. I agree. It's a cheaper and fast car if you're going to go for something under $30-35k. BUT, the WRX is PROVED to be quicker than the STi. The turbo lag, torque, horse, etc. on numerous dyno tests on any justified and valued shop and mag out there. Second of all, an EVO? This is Newschoolers, we're all white. If you're going Japanese, only consider Subaru (yeah, that's right. Every douche on the road is either behind a 350/370z or a variation of an Infiniti g35/37).
Save yourself the money from that mother fucking STUPID wing on the STi (which 80% get removed anyway) and get the WRX - be able to take corners, hills, and launch a little quicker. And put your saved funds towards something more tangible.
well no wrxs are not faster then a sti. wrx is the 2.0 block vs the sti 2.5 block, while the td04 has a quicker spool then the sti's vf39, it is by no means faster. given gearing and smaller turbo on the wrx it may be faster on the first 50 feet but after that .. bye bye. would it be wise to buy a wrx and swap in 3 parts and then be faster then a sti for under 2k extra .. well ya. sti's are over priced for the small differences between the it and the wrx.
