Default UK is getting 2.5L Turbo power!

The UK "Type 25" is getting the 2.5L Turbo motor, but it's tuned differently and gets a bigger turbo compared to the North American STi motor. The suspension has 18 way adjustible struts, and it has that sweet new JDM front lip I want so bad!!!

Yes but they are offering the whole car. They are not a tuning company but an import company.

You can still take your money, and get a shiney new car with warranty, so it's a pretty complete deal.

I dont think thies gray market cars are covered under warranty...

And they have been fixing up and selling spec Cs for a while now, I think all they did was slap a 2.5 block on there spec Cs.

This type of company used to bring in Japanese spec high performance cars which were not usually available in the UK. Compare the difference nowadays to EU cars which are covered by European law and are pretty popular due to the savings.

There was a huge import market that developed in the mid 90s especially with the WRX and STI versions 4-6 and the Mitsubishi Evo series, but dealerships were refusing to service them "on principal". The boom is over and the dealerships just take the work if it's there.

Independent "insurance" warranties are available, but not from the manufacturer. When I left UK in June, an importer had a Jap spec 350Z 6 months ahead of Nissan UK, but was asking a fortune for it.

I had an import Evo VI, from Japan, via the Middle East. It turns out that most of these cars were "stolen to order" ...

No, not high strung at all. That was the point of these cars, was that the 2.5L motor would give the UK Spec C unmatched low end grunt. In the Feb 17th issue of Autocar mag. they compare the acceleration of the car to the new baby Lambo. 0-60 sub 4 seconds, and acceleration from 3000 RPM onwards that would make a Gallardo blush.

Im wondering if its got any block work... but I guess if they are making peek power at 6.9k it ok to keep the rev-limit to 7k.

I want to see one of the big build 2.8L blocks with a 8k rev-line in thies cars.

Apparently there's very little modification to the engines. These engines are the North American STi 2.5L. The changes are higher flow heads, equal length headers, and a ECU reflash to take advantage of the awesome high octane gas they get over in the UK.

It's true that there gas is very expensive, but at least they have high octane gas availible. Man, I wish there are places around here to get true 94.

I just think it's funny that after all these years of wishing for STi's over here in North America that after we get ours, the UK is importing our take on the STi!

Now, if we could only the a Spec C...
