Default So, would you mod it to hell or keep it stock?

If I get one (I'm between this, an Evo, an RX-8, a 350Z, an SRT-4 and keeping my modded UrS4, but that's a whole other thread), I think I'm going to bastardize it with mods.

400 horsepower to the ground and I hope to do it without an engine rebuild...what are you guys getting it for? I've got a weekend road racing habit I have to feed and this is the perfect car to do it in.

So, who's keeping it stock?
Who's 1/4miling it?
Who's auto-xing?
Who's taking this thing around a road course to see how close you can cut it before you lose it?

Well, I saw you comments in the other thread and you don't seem all that optimistic. I'm pretty sure that the 2.5 sti is going to have very similar rods and a crank to the normal 2.5. So I wouldn't expect more than 400 hp and 7000 rpm out of it. I could be wrong though.

I'm hoping for a Prodrive performance pack (maybe even covered under warranty). I'd expect 350bhp or more, and maybe reduced understeer.

If I do get one, I'll keep it stock with the exception of braided brake lines, maybe a sway bar change and an alignment. We'll see about those last too after the car has been around and people have expiremtented with the suspension more.

I will be tracking it and auto-xing it.

Mine will remail mostly stock, except for a few minor things.
BTW the STI 2.5 has forged internals so it should take quite a beating if you do want to mod it.

Because it is only good, not great. And I would hardly call making better braking, tighter turning, and harder pulling...."messing up".

For me, de-gawdy mods first, stereo and alarm second, then more power.
