I think thats from shiv's dyno over at vishnuperformance.com. Their dyno is known to give low figures. If I remember correctly I think they dynoed the evo at aroun 180.

I would go to a different dealership. That guy is an idiot. It is like the Boxster in that it is a flat engine configuration, but that is it.

It's no secret that Subaru got a lot of its engine technology from Porsche way back. He is right that the boxer engine design came from Porsche in THEORY.....but Subaru has never used a Porsche engine to my knowledge.

...the dealership was Subaru Springfield off of backlick road next to the VW dealer
oh man, why didn't you say that. this dealer has zero credibility with me. one of their salemen said that subaru was only delivering 300 STi's for the year. geez. anyway, i recently found out they're loosing their subaru franchise. need we speculate?

uh, is this an issue with the salesman not listening? Sounds like this is a BOXER vs BOXTER issue -two totally different things :D

Cool interior mod

yup... shiv's dynos do rn low numbers.

so the deal is, compare number from the same dyno and you're fine. otherwise, it's apples to oranges.

btw, that sales droid may have read that porsche designed the STi tranny... or at least some posts from a dude who's brother just came back from a subaru training session that told him that... (IIRC)...

That is hilarious. I could never think of a way to describe the front end of that neon on steroids, but that fits perfect.
