Default Help King of Imports build a better Project STi!

Initially, this thread was started out of interest to sell my STi. After receiving an overwhelming of fan mail with subject lines like "DONT DO IT!" and "Have you lost your mind?" when I expressed this interest, I started to think more about my reasons for selling the car. I thought it would be fun to move over to an EVO to learn more about that car, but I realized that I had just gotten bored of the STI. I know that sounds absurb and it is absurb, but I lost my passion for modifying it further so I figured it was time to sell.

Well, with all of these secret fans that this STi has on these forums, I realized selling it would let them down. Now that that issue is out of the way, we can look forward and I am looking for help from you, your suggestions, your ideas, and your insights into helping to shape the future of this project.

To get you up to speed, here is a list of mods:

18" BBS REs (S203 style)

Sad to say that you're going to have to find somebody with major $$ to get any return on all of those installed goodies. Have you considered putting some stock parts back on and selling "mods" seperately?

If someone got it for 30K, it'd be a bargin with all those goodies.

I realize putting it back to stock will fetch more money. If it is back to stock, what is a PSM STi worth with 20,0xx miles, well maintained with service records, and no warranty history?

Kevin,

I did not think you were that serious when I talked with you last. You have one nice STi! However, I understand, the new Evo 9 MR is going to be a fast car and a ton of fun on the track. I even considered the Evo 8 MR when I bought my STi. In my opinion, I thought the STi was the better bargin. No doubt, the Evo 9 MR will hand it to the STi in every way.

Good luck on your decision!

Mike

Still just seeing if it makes any sense. Right now, it does not look like it given what 04s are getting. The cost to jump to a new MR could get me some serious mods in the STi, like a new 5th and 6th gear from the JDM transmission, new turbo and FMIC system with a new tune. I am also curious to see what the NEW STi looks like as well as any power gains it might have. Maybe I will just keep tweaking what I have and see where that takes me.

I don't think the new EVO is going to be a kick in the pants like everyone is making it out to be. As much as I would love to get my grubby hands on the stuff you have on your STi, I would suggest keeping what you have. You have a great STi already and this engine is still pretty young so the magic of it still hasn't been found. In the long haul I think you would be better off keeping it but it is your car and YOU make the final decision on what would make you happier!!

I agreee. I realized my problem, I just like to change things...alot. My patience has gone to nil with the STi. I will cruise it over to a mitsu dealership and talk to someone about a trade in on a stock STi. Maybe I can get a ride and be better informed to make this decision.
