OK, it seems to me from everything I've read that the EVO's power/torque starts much sooner then the STi. Basically that the EVO gets going around 3000 rpm or so, but the STi is pretty dead until around closer to 4000. So, (1) is this an accurate assessment, and (2), if so, why would Subaru tune it to be so dead where you can really use it, especially since it's supposedly the more civilized and livable car?

Is part of it related to the cat in the uppipe? Shiv's catless uppipe supposedly lowers the lag by about 500 rpm in the WRX.

P.S. Still looking for hp/torque curve for the STi. EVO's is listed in their promotional .pdf file (http://www.mitsubishi-motors.co.jp/PDF-E/evo7.pdf)

Well, we all know that the evo is quicker than the STI stock. As far as reasons for that its probly a question for subaru directly. It more than likely has to do with the fact that they are different turbos and the STI turbo doesnt spool till about 4K RPM.
