General starter

Why is it that the Type R engine rev's so high compared to the standard models?

Do not all the STI's rev to 8000?

The sti engines are balanced and I think you will find the heads govern the anount of revs they will take.

Think you will find most the STI parts are the same as the type r. But you do have two doors. :wink:
The engines are blueprinted and well ballanced. I think this means that Subaru make all the parts and measure them the ones exact are put in the typr R's near enough go in the STI's and the crap ones go in the UK models.....

All Type R's are 2 door. The RA is a 4 door. :wink:

Nothing wrong with a UK car Phill. Told you my MY98 was the best Scoob I've had. 8)
ScoobyDazza has a STD uk with bolt on goodies at 346 bhp. Fuzz has a STD UK with bolt on at 460ish :P :x :x

I still cant understand why they stopped doing the 2 door models??? :? :? :? :? :? IMHO they do look so much nicer than a 4 door but hey, I guess that's up to Subaru!!

Well, 350bhp to 400 is going to be my aim, I dont know where else I could use anything more appart from on the track or at Santa Pod... Well until it breaks down

Well that's a long list!! I wonder what all that cost!! Is a 6 speed option a popular choice with classic owners?

If you are putting out a lot of power. Its a 5 speed uprated box at 2500 or 6 speed at 1500.

Why are the 5 speed's more expensive than the 6's? I thought the newer 6 speed would have been more expensive? What can the newer 6 speed boxes handle, power wise?

I have not heard of a 6 speed braking as of yet. even though a few have 500+ BHP.
The Santa pod lads tend to like the uprated 5 speed less gear changes and is said to be quicker on the quarter mile. Some of the uprated 5 speeds do tend to be a little loud though. But they mix gear ratio's and have quiet 5ths for quiet cruising.

Apparently according to Ivan, the 6 speed box I have is in desperate shortage!! Apparently so many want one, but no one can get hold of one! It's unreal really.. figured there'd be loads of them rather than just a select few...

I dont mind 5 or 6 gears when cruising mate.. Its all good Saving petrol is the main thing here!! 80mph on a motorway is plently
