Long-term Reliability

I'm pretty sure the S202 is only available in RHD since its a limited edition model for Japan.

How do you run a J-Spec STi in America in respect to octane of gas? Do they remap the fuel line and reprogram the ecu for 93 octane or something? And how about emissions?

A MOTEC is a fuel managment system or ECU what ever u want to call it.here is the web site
http://www.motec.com.au/
im not using the stock EVO ecu.im having a Motec M48 pro installed.
this sysytem is familiar to a DFI sytem a haltec and many other after market systems

So what do you do if you ever have any problems with the EVO? Where do you take it? How much would parts cost cause I am sure there is no warranty at least any that a dealer in the US would acknowledge. I can also imagine what they would charge for labor if they were willing to work on it.

whoa, 45K is too much for me, even the special at 36,5 is way to much; i guess i'll just wait till these cars are announced for US and go from there.

Now I'm definitely skeptical. If you said 320 at the crank or flywheel it would make more sense. You're talking about 320 through an AWD system; that's gotta be at least 375 crank HP. If you're saying you added 100 HP over JDM stock with just a Motec engine management system, I have to call your bluff.

Now if the actual output of the JDM engine is more like 315-320 at the crank, like the rumors say, you'd only be adding 55-60 horses. That's still a little high for just ECU mods.

Am I missing something here?
