Even if all that was needed to do it was a tune?

Either way I have determined that running E85 isn't feasible on a NA. But like I said, if I were to convert a car to run on E85 it would be for the power gains and not because I would be "saving the environment" by using it.

How do they look under the STI emblem? Neither really lines up with the WRX badge, unless you went with the yellow one and moved it more to the left closer to the taillight.

Any desire to remove the WRX badge and place the E85 bade in its place?

Im just saying that if you converted your NA motor to use corn oil with a tune and all hardware, you wouldn't gain squat in terms of power.


remember, I had an RS and before the WRX we had people like Shiv and other tuners trying to squeeze out any bit of hp, with race gas, etc... The most anyone got without turbo was like 190hp and that was a lot of work!


At least you can still go fast in the corners.

Why else does everyone choose to run E85 in our cars? The potential to create more power. Another reason I choose to run it is bc its alot cheaper. I am aware I will lose gas mileage, but it doesnt matter when you comapare it to the rising fuel costs. Premium gas is already at $3.71 around my area. When I compare it to the E85 and factor in the prices and the loss of mileage, I still come on top running E85.

Ya I knew they wouldnt line up. The green one I was planning on just putting right in the middle of the WRX. The yellow ones does line up but not on both bottom corners. Lines with the bottom of the W and the top of the X. Under the STi badge it doesnt look right. I did think about removing the WRX letters and putting the flexfuel bagde in its place. But I dont know yet.

+1 i think this would look best imo.

i also think it would look really clean too if you paint the green/yellow parts cherry blossom to match the sti badge. just my $.02

And I agree with JourJour, adding the badge is like owning a Prius. My moms minivan takes E85, and there's no badge. I didn't even know until like 7 years after she bought it. I was filling it up on the way back from the city and noticed on the inside of the filler door it mentioned E85. +2 to Dodge for being ahead of the game (its an 02) and not being all "Heeeey look at us!"

Guess your right about Dodge not putting FlexFuel badges on their cars. Since 07 they have putting them on

I would go for pink too because you'll be the only one. Here's a pic of where I put it from a back view. Pic is crap but just showing where I put it. I would do the same for you on the opposite side. Completely take out the "WRX Impreza" and put it there.

I put mine on the left side. 07 STI didn't come with the WRX badge though, all that was there was the Subaru and Impreza badges, which had previously been removed.
