Indeed, if it were only not raining here in Portland until, well, about March of so. ;(

This is just the shot in the arm the WRX needed. While it does loose a bit on the low end spoolup, the car now feels like a proper sized turbo car. With the gear box as is, it is no surprise these cars get such great 0-60 times. In the end, this platform is very similar to the STI, but the STI 6 speed still has a huge advantage in the larger power application. I don't think you will see too many 650whp WRXs using the stock 5 speed transmission.
