I agree... but to an extent. Compared to the evo motor the STI motor is incredibly inefficient. I blame it on the unequal headers, OEM intercooler location, up pipe with cats... but its a quality product which is why I'm sold for life.

Then again I grew up with my dad's Porsche's and became a fanboy so that may make me a tad bit biased. The only downside I see is to buying and not building is not have the satisfaction of building something with my own two hands which when it comes to a 900hp car, isn't something many of us would be building ourselves anyway.
Most cars aren't built all at once, it's a process. Mine for example, the amount of money I've put into it I could have a much more expensive car, but I've owned it for almost 5 years so all the mods have come over time, spread out so it's not like I'm dropping 20-30k into it at one time.

I've put about $45,000 into my car, including what I bought the car for. But I "know people" and get super secret pricing on parts and labor

I wouldn't think it'd be that much for the Evo. It depends on how much he bought it for, but I'm guessing that he has around $60,000 into that car, including the car itself. But I'm not sure how much all of the body work cost him. That **** can get expensive

I don't plan on doing anything else to mine :/

Why isn't e85 more readily available? Is kind of annoying that I can't road trip without switching tunes, which I don't like to bother with

Well that's all well and fine but we weren't talking about the Evo. We were comparing WRX vs STI.

Our entire state is literally made of corn and we don't have any "corn". This is some bull****.

Because 12-13mpg is far from ideal, and winter blend e85 is absolute ****, plus the 93 tune it had, wasn't meant for driving regularly, just an emergency.

This
There's a place like 20 minutes away from my house that has 100 octane and "all flavors" of race fuel. I can almost guarantee that they don't have E85, but I think I'm gonna call tomorrow and inquire on what "all flavors" includes

Hey I think I get like 15-16 mpg. So worth it

And mileage actually isn't too bad if you stay off it...but that's like telling a cat not to purr

I'm still trying to figure out how to stay out of boost. If I stay out I get dirty looks and pissed off people, but if I take off at the same pace as traffic my car goes full retard

Mine does the same thing.

Staying out of boost isn't a problem, it's just if i accidentally break that line. Full retard engaged.
