News 2007 STI Limited Edition (Just the Facts)

I wanted to start a thread to clear the air about the 2007 STI Limited Edition. Too many threads are getting bogged down with petty comments and opinions. The real information is getting lost in the muck.

I ask that people only post factual information and leave the negative or positive comments to other threads dealing with this car. Let's try to make this a non-opinion posting thread. Just do a search and you'lll find threads for that.

Thank you.

Hey guys... this might be a noob question and all, but why did they detune the new sti to 293hp????

Sorry, just joking.... it has been asked so many times that I had to do that... I can just picture the looks on everyones faces as they read that!

Also, I am sorry if nobody thought this was funny.

Not yet, however, I did hear from my salesman today about getting an estimate for the 3M clear bra put on, per my request, so I think perhaps he knows something but doesn't want to get my hopes up just yet... He originally told me late Sept/early Oct, but it seems they have been showing up about 2 weeks early for others I've spoken too.

Steel lower control arms are probably both a cost down and stronger than aluminum at the cost of weight.

Just thought I'd show these... I know they were mentioned in other threads but since these are Just the Facts, they should be in here to.

2006 STI 6-speed
1st - 3.636
2nd - 2.375
3rd - 1.761
4th - 1.346
5th - 0.971
6th - 0.756

2007 STI 6-speed
1st - 3.636
2nd - 2.235
3rd - 1.521
4th - 1.137
5th - 0.971
6th - 0.756

As you can see... slightly longer gearing. I don't have the numbers for the old gearing but I do for the new ones.

2007 STI 6-speed (redline speeds)
1st = 35.4
2nd = 57.6
3rd = 84.6
4th = 113.2
5th = 132.5
6th = 170.2

Means the 07 STis should be a little better in the 1/4 mile now and we should be able to end it in 4th gear.

Saw the '07 STI Limited at the dealer tonight. Air pump is definitely there, but I didn't see the connectors for the tumblers like on my 04. Unless they were on the back side of the housings and I didn't see them... ???

Other than that, looks really nice. Love the rear lip.

It pumps air into the exhaust system for better cold start emissions.
