What an interesting info, Jeff.
I have 2 questions since here (Spain) it has begin an harmful urban legend about the MY06 units, saying that they are weaker than previous (USDM) units. So as I'm totally skeptic about the rumours I only wish to know if:
1- Can be the new (MY06) Euro EJ257 be considered the same as the MY06 USDM?
2.- Has the USDM MY06 the same engine as the previous MYs?
I question this because I have firts hand experience with a MY03 USDM Imported STi wich develops +550 hp on standar internals, and it has not had any problems, so if my engine (Spanish MY06 STi 2.5) is the same as the one found in my friends imported unit, I'll be totally satified and afraid free.
Thanks in advice.
