hai!

They're pretty similar, 2.0 vs 2.5 in the STI. I am going with a full 3" cat-less exhaust, and a custom stage 1.5 tune. The STI have a basically bulletproof drivetrain, easily capable of 270+ whp, whereas the WRX's transmission will very likely blow up into 80,000 little pieces within 20 miles pushing those numbers. Not too mention, I have 170k miles on my car, so I"m basically gonna shoot for roughly 230-245whp tops, until I can afford some reinforcements in my motor/drivetrain.
