WTF indeed; but be aware that Japan is the only country that still has a 2.0 liter STI, whereas everywhere else in the world all Imprezas have the 2.5.

Update: 320 hp and 318tq on the 2.0 twin-scrolled engine

$41k; but only available to the Japanese market (sadly)

but there's also the 06 ESX STI for us
$45k+ and only 400 available

According to that link
HP: 320 @ 6400
TQ: 319 @ 4400

HP: 320 @ 5400

I know it's not just about HP/TQ numbers.. but for 41K......... I don't think the STI owners are missing out on much...

I did read the original post.. weight savings >100lbs, lighter wheels, better brakes, better seats, apparantly (by pix) a better interior in general, but for 41K...

"I (still) don't think the current STI (USDM 2.5L) owners are missing out on much"

sorry if I ruffled your feathers... but since you can't get one on the US shores anyway I guess I'm just trying to make myself feel better...

sorry again

haha, don't be scurr'd!

it's all good man, people have different opinions, I was just making sure you read the post...and didn't think that adding some hp and tq to a stock sti made it just as good as the 204

there's a lot more that goes into it, and those parts on the s204 will start showing up on sti's no doubt within a few months...that has to show you something...

oh no doubt,... there will be a 'trickle down' of S204 inspired knock offs if not actual OEM parts that will start showing up bolted to the USDM STIs

I figured that was a given,... so yeah, we have a differing opinion but that's how the world works. I just didn't wanna **** anyone off as I'm the new guy 'round here.

I personally like the suspension and extra aerodynamic work they did on the S204.... those parts are the ones I'll be looking to put on my 06

(that and a Cobb AP )
