Would you go for the Japanese twin scroll version or the US version if it was available? Do you think the emissions of the Japanese version are much worse? (This may also be a problem in Germany.)
Do you have any experience with Evolutionimports? (They sell the Japanese version.)
Thanks for any help,
I would definitely go with the USDM version. Given a choice between the JDM STi with the 2.0L Turbo with twin-scroll and the USDM STi with the 2.5L Turbo without twin-scroll, I would without hesitation go with the 2.5L USDM version. Of course, if it was a 2.0L USDM version without twin-scroll, then I would have preferred the JDM version.
