I really liked the borla sound . I went between borla and the ets. The ets had a little to much drone.

Stage 2 tune is necessary. Intake, downpipe, cbe, and tune it. Should end up at 300/350 reliable. You either get a good solid EJ or you don't. The bad ones are only 1-3%

Why? You already have a heavily modded Evo 8.

You essentially picked up an Evo8 that's heavier with a less reliable motor and some fancy creature comforts...

I'm assuming you spent somewhere in the ball park region of $40K, there are quite a few options available in that range. What was your criteria that drove you to get such a similar car?

full story . Had an s2k like all you guys. I came from a heavily modded ep3. I wanted to keep things simple. Did boltons and wasn't happy. I sold the s2k. Bought the evo. Very happy with the power for simple boltons. I needed a reliable DD. I have an rsx-s for dd. I got a new job that requires me to drive out of town. About 25 mins to get to work. I wanted an awd car .

I went to the dealer to initially buy a 2017 sti. The day I go to buy it , they sold it already . The sales man tells me all the benefits of the new wrx. Twin scroll turbo etc etc. I bought a fully loaded one. About 2 months later they get a 2018 white sti with the recaros package . I test drove it and fell in love . I loved driving the STI. But it didn't make sense for me to trade the wrx. They end up selling the sti. Fast forward to now. I drove by the dealership and they had another white sti. I remembered how much I enjoyed it and white was the only color i wanted . So this time i jumped on it. Was it smart? Nope. I lost alot on the trade in, but I wanted it since I drove it.

the sti cost me a little over 35k. It was stickered for 37,063

the evo isn't heavily modified at all. It's all basic boltons . Intake exhaust intercooler down pipe. That's all
