Nice Tyler! I had one as a rental for a couple days a short while ago and it felt rather quick... i was wondering how it would stack up.... it felt like it would be close.

I'll be honest. I brake boosted a bit. He honked. He also has the automatic. 60mph in 3rd while brake boosting the car gets happy to jump pretty quickly. Once the 3rd honk hint I jumped out almost a full car on him and after that just continued to pull away. Those cars come with what 455hp? Which at around 5000ft the car is probably 360-370whp, and weighs more than my STI. So makes since why I put the distance on him that I did.

After going back and forth. I listed the STI for sale. It's been listed for about a month and I've basically only gotten "It's listed for to much" the car is only listed at 27k, which is what NADA values the car at.

So, I'm going to keep it since I don't care to get hassled and I wont less the car for less than I think it's worth considering how much time and effort I've put into it.

On that note, has anyone looked at the XR Red HTZ? Guessing it spools much faster than the Red.

I was looking at that turbo, but I wasn't able to find any input or info on it.

I honestly don't remember seeing the XR Red when I got my Green. So I'm thinking a FMIC, XR Red, and external waste gate. Maybe a new clutch too. lolz All for next spring/summer.

But, info:

Compressor wheel - 76HTZ
Flow rating - 61LB per minute
CW Measurements - 54.8MM Inducer / 76MM Exducer
TW Measurements - 59.9MM Inducer / 54.9MM Exducer
Compressor Housing - 84MM FAP Cover
Turbine Housing - FP 9CM Subaru Turbine Housing
CHRA - Xona Rotor
Oil Line - Not Included

Definitely interested in seeing what kind of results you get. I bet the spool is gonna be wicked. Looking at the specs its more like a Green/Blue than the Red.

Haha word. I was talking to a friend about selling the STI and he was like I get why you're doing it. But honestly, I wouldn't do it if I were you. He said "dude, you're a car guy, you're always messing with the STI, do something, doing car things, racing, canyon drives, all sorts of stuff. But now you wanna sell the STI and save up for 2 years to buy a 911 turbo. You know you're going to impulse buy another racecar before then or buy a 911 turbo before you're ready and screw yourself on a payment."

Realistically, he is/was right. I have a hard time not being in a car I can enjoy. The STI is almost paid off, it's pretty fast, it has a couple small issues but that is fine. Everything is fixable. I still have a small stack of parts that never even got installed on it. So, just going to install what I have left before winter and focus on paying the car off. Hopefully I can pay it off before next summer so I can mod it more.

It's basically a steroid version of the Green. Ball bearing, Xona wheel, 9cm housing, and 84mm inlet only. Definitely crazy to look at, I really want to see Prime Motoring tune one of these and see what kind of jam they can make. Ideally, I want to see them tune it with a FMIC, 1300cc injectors, EL headers, and flexfuel while on stock heads. Just so I can get realistic numbers for my car.

A blue:
Compressor wheel - 73HTZ
Flow rating - 57LB per minute
CW Measurements - 52.6MM Inducer / 73MM Exducer
TW Measurements - 60.8MM Inducer / 54MM Exducer
Compressor Housing - 84MM FAP Cover or 58MM Stock Appearing Cover
Turbine Housing - FP 8CM Subaru Turbine Housing
CHRA - FP Journal Bearing
Oil Line - Included

A green:
Compressor wheel - 76HTZ
Flow rating - 61LB per minute
CW Measurements - 54.8MM Inducer / 76MM Exducer
TW Measurements - 67.3MM Inducer / 58.8MM Exducer
Compressor Housing - 60MM Small Inlet or 84MM FAP Cover
Turbine Housing - FP 8CM Subaru Turbine Housing
CHRA - FP Journal Bearing
Oil Line - Included

A normal red
Compressor wheel - GT35R
Flow rating - 65LB per minute
CW Measurements - 61.5MM Inducer / 82MM Exducer
TW Measurements - 67.3MM Inducer / 58.8MM Exducer
Compressor Housing - 84MM FAP Cover
Turbine Housing - FP 8CM or 10CM Subaru Turbine Housing
CHRA - FP Journal Bearing
Oil Line - Included

A XR Red
Compressor wheel - 76HTZ
Flow rating - 61LB per minute
CW Measurements - 54.8MM Inducer / 76MM Exducer
TW Measurements - 59.9MM Inducer / 54.9MM Exducer
Compressor Housing - 84MM FAP Cover
Turbine Housing - FP 9CM Subaru Turbine Housing
CHRA - Xona Rotor
Oil Line - Not Included

So would the normal red vs xr red be similar to a GTX3576 and GTX3076 (both gen2's), respectively? If so, why would you prefer any of those over the garrett gen2's?

And why the xr over the regular; just quicker spool?

Lots of questions but that is because I am very curious as well, as I am looking at alternatives to possibly replace my dom3....
