Hi Guys, Just wanting some general feedback as to what US magazines have the best STI product info, road testing, and product reviews on aftermarket tuning parts? I'd like to know what mags you guys read and enjoy and the reasons why you like that particular magazine. :)

Thanks in advance for your input, greatly appreciated. :tup: :D

^ none. the best info is found here, or on nasioc. seems most of the mags are concerned with honda's and bling, dont really find great subaru articles.

I like Modified, DSport and Turbo, they usually go indepth with their articles. Super Street is good for "recreational" reading :)

If youre talking about just for maximum subaru content then obviously subiesport wins. Otherwise for just generic car tuner mags that feature subarus I like turbo a lot.

I personally like Sport Compact Car.
They have a "Project STi" that is featured quite a bit in it.

Is this for your advertising purpose? Either way Subiesport, Turbo, SCC, etc..

Reason why I enjoy reading them is because not only do they periodically run artiles on the Subaru but also their Illustrations are very easy to follow, even for a guy like me :lol:

Subiesport has the most focus on our cars, but it spends most of its time on the lower trim models, which kind of sucks since the stuff doesn't usually correlate to our cars.

Outside of that magazine, I've been finding STi coverage to be pretty sparse as most mags focus on the EVO.

Turbo has given some decent coverage of the STi with their Project STi. Just about every issue for the last 4-5 months has had an update of their project.

However they've done most of the power mods w/o engine management which is just a poor idea. There was a letter to them this month from a reader and they explained that they've since had it tuned and are running ECUTek.

I also read Sport Compact Car and Grassroots Motorsports in addition to Subiesport which was already mentioned. Unfortunately none of them really seem to cover much STi stuff. :(
