Re: sti or wrx

the thing is with this argument is a lot of factors, on Pure driving IMHO a STI is where a well moded WRX will end up, so if you did the same work(upgrade wise) a sti will be better again.

Re: sti or wrx

whats your long term modding plans?

if your going to alot of modding and replace 80% of the parts anyway then stay with what you have and go from there. sti engine is stronger but past 400bhp ish then its pushing it so if you go above that you'll need and engine build no mater what

advantage of going with the sti is it already has the 6 speed box which if you have big plans you'll need (or ppg set), which is a big cost.

its a bit of a toss up,

not planning on big mods probally looking at 320 or so so an sti with a ppp pak would do nicely. you seem to get a lot more with the sti like brembos sti seats etc.. ive had a few fast cars but the scooby does shift, pound per power not much beats it..

Wouldn't bother looking for a ppp. Get an sti decat it and map it and you will eat a ppp
