no doubt... but see, then we'd be talking 20k+ in mods to a WRX and only 10k in mods to an STi.. and I can tell you that 20k in mods to a WRX will outperform 95-99% of any of the modded STi's out there.. Fact is.. you asked how to stealth a performance car like the STi... I answered with an easy answer: save your $, buy a used '02 and you can dump all your extra $ into performance which will anhiliate any STi AND keep you stealthy....

A hasty example.. but a good one.. STEALTH-WRX.. Nick owns an '02 (looks like an '04 with the conversion..) that puts down 536awhp.. can you find many STi's that compare in the slightest?? I can pretty much guarantee you he has spent less than 20k in performance mods...

Another? ESX's new-gen WRX.. fastest new gen WRX. and it's NOT an STi...it pulled mid-10's with an EJ20...

Fact is, STi is like Nike.. you're buying extra performance, yes.. but mostly you're buying a name by buying an "STi".. don't get me wrong, I love the STi, I love the looks.. but if I wanted to stay "stealthy" with performance, I'd stay WRX...
