I sure don't feel that way. The JDM car has its strengths, no doubt, but this time I think we got a car that is the equal of or better than the JDM car.gforced said:Oh well, I guess we (the North American market) got screwed again.
Yeah, I think there probably could. I know of other models of cars where the manual/auto exhibit that kind of disparity.eatV8 said:13.8 is moving... an aussie mag i have here had it run 14.8 in auto (same engine) could there be 1 second difference to a manual model?
I disagree with this. You are saying that 1 out of every 1000 sti's will have engine mods?? No way.You guys seem to be jumping the gun.
Probably .1% of STi owners will be pushing the limits of the 2.5l USDM STi pistons. For those .1%, if they're that financially determined to max out the stock pistons, funds will surely be available for forged pistons.
We didn't get 'screwed'. Keep in mind, you pay $32k for 300hp/300tq-- NOT aftermarket potential.
hmm. can you explain how this is so? i don't doubt you; it's just counter-intuitive how this design make a stronger pin. (i'm doing some googles.)WRX_XB9R said:Tapered wristpins are the way to go. If properly designed they are lighter and STRONGER than straight bore wristpins.
