Hey guys Im new to the forum and I have a couple questions, Ive heard that the STi will either have 260 or probably 280hp. I also have a feeling that it will cost about $30000 US. That said I think it would be crazy to buy an STi. The reason I say this is for one reason, I read an article in Super Street where they take a standard WRX, add a perfomance filter, a NURSPEC exhaust and a blitz boost controler and get 227hp at the wheels which is about 283hp. The total cost being under $1500 I think. So then tell me why spend all kinds of money on an STi not to mention extra insurance costs to have a little pink badge on your WRX. I understand that the STi has better suspension and brakes and a nicer interior but is it really worth $8000, I think not!!!
