My guess is no. Easystreet Motorsports created a 740 HP WRX w/o a tranny change, and the STi's tranny is a lot beefier so I'd imagine you wouldn't have a problem. What mods are you planning to do??

If you get your Imprezza over 800HP, I will high 5 you for having the highest HP Imprezza in the world. I would also buy you a new transmission because you would def need one. Then I will kick your ass for being stupid.

tony rigoli who builds ESX engine who is based in aust, his wrx that run [email protected] in the ¼ is suppose to be good for almost 1000hp @ crank... also snowboard, are u referring to the red one that drags? because its got an auto tranny in it, not a manual...

I still think that the Aus spec STI/WRX that holds the record has <800Hp. It has the record because the GC8's weigh much less than a US spec WRX.

it was dominique rigoli(tonys son) who actually quoted this car to be around 1000hp. he built it and drove it...

Really? Where does it say this? I believe you are mistaken. There is a drag WRX with an Auto tranny, but it's not the ESX one, nor is it even red:

http://www.turbomagazine.com/features/0301tur_ej20/

"Additional mods include an ESX exhaust system, a five-gallon fuel cell and a TRP Dog Box five-speed tranny."

Plus, the shift knob in the pic doesn't look like an auto tranny one either.

ride along

thats the same car... that was back when it was running only mid 10's and Turbo mag claim there of fastest EJ20 is wrong, since tony rigoli run a 10.02 b4 the first wrx was even released here in the usa, but anyway... heres the link to the updated specs of the car... now best et of 9.75
