Info needed pls

Hi guys new to this site. I have decided to go for an impreza. Looking to know the difference between the uk impreza and the WRX. I am goin to purchase a 1995 wrx import so basically just looking for info. Is the engine the same as the 2.0t uk spec. I have heard that the import is mapped differently as i would expect for it to run on 100 Ron fuel.

Cheers guys

UK runs on the higher octain also
depending on year of UK power will either be 208 to 215/18 bhp
import rex iro 240/250 bhp

UK also cheaper to insure and more tuneable due to the ecu

Lol makes sense cheers fella. Last question. Does the mapping of the ecu give it the extra power. Or is it down to the engine??
