    Go to a dealer and look at the sticker. I went with my friend cause he wanted to buy one, and thats what they were asking for the STI

    im all abought going fast

    sti

    hid headlights,
    dccd tranny "useless for drag racing applications""
    bremebo brakes "but nice to have"
    10' spoiler
    drive by wire
    completly new engine for us market "part's are hard to come by"

    all parts thar are just for the bling apeal

    by a base wrx save 8,000 $ or so put 1,000 in basic mods and beat the sti and save 7,000 for a rainy day

    now on to the evo

    little pricy but well worth it 4g63 engine 10 times better, tried and proven for 12 years not 2 years like the sti also the track and hp number dont lie.

    evo

    exhaust//intake/cams//mbc low 12s hi 11s 375-400 hp

    sti

    exhaust//intake///MBC maybe break hi 12s ? 340 hp if that

    it basically boils down to what you wanna do with the car, you want a good all around car track and some drag racing buy a sti you want a drag car and car thats super fast buy a evo

    evo= more mod friendly
    sti= way too damm complicated

    FYI

    ther are abough5 evo's off hand all in the low 12s and 3 in the 11s with stock internals and bolt ons

    there is ummm no sti's i know of in the 11s and all the fast subies are wrx's models, tony justin and me and frank when he had his

Once the power gets bigger, the 5spd shows its weakness even with a stronger gearset. And from what Ive heard the 6spd seems to be taking everything thrown at it. Other than that I agree with what youre saying.

    Oh and there has been an STi to get into and pass 11s so idk why you keep saying there hasnt.

    not in central florida that i know of?

    6 speeds is not the best choice for drag racing gears are too short. but i agree the 6 speed is much much better then the 5 speed

    and as for weak trannies the transmision will treat you as well as you treat it right,

    <<--24,0000 miles with countless track runs,

    Oh I thought you meant anywhere. In that case yeah there are none to hit 11s yet in CFL. (I was referencing the car in Puerto Rico that went 10.7 awhile back btw). But I am hoping for some of these Tampa guys to pony up and get to the track.

    +1 on the 6spd being geared to short. 5th shouldnt be touched by a stock car in the 1/4.

    +2 on the 5spd lasting with a decent driver. You always hear about "my tranny broke" not "my tranny didnt break".

    Yeah the Easy Street wrx(s) are into the 9s. They use automatic trannies though. Their whole race team will actually be at Mastro Subaru in Tampa on Friday, but lucky me gets to move back to UCF that day so I cant make it.

    But back to the original topic...I dont think an STi could be had for much less now than what they were going for. Subaru isnt struggling to sell them. If you want a cheap STi get a slightly used one. They can be had for well under 30k.

    solarsvx, you need to get your facts straight. EJ20 has been around for much longer than 2 years (anyone here of this place called Japan?). Just because you dont know where to look for parts, doesnt mean they arent out there. And the reason there arent 11 s STis is because people who buy them dont care about drag racing (usually). Youve had a bad experience with the car, thats fine. Doesnt mean you have to go around bashing and making up all these stories so no one gets them.

    however, like you said, for drag racing the EVO is better because thats all its good at.
    Racing! Because basketball, baseball, football and soccer only require one ball.
