Talking about that EJ20 engine

with the pending arrival of the US-bound WRX, can anyone speak to the prowess of that engine? How does it compare to the Toyota 2.0 liter 3S-GTE engine in the MR2 turbo? that engine can easily support 300+ rwhp without internal mods (per Scc). I plan to own a REX when it becomes available, and will make it my next project car, but the engine is unknown to me.
Any help out there?

The engine has been around for seven years in turbocharged form. Try http://bbs.scoobynet.co.uk for the opinions and experiences of people who have actually owned an EJ20 Impreza turbo (note: the "old" car is not called "WRX" in UK, Europe etc.). Many of the owner/drivers come across as aggressive thugs with depleted manhoods, but you can't have everything, can you .

Andy,
thanks for the tip! I'll check them out (and keep a wary eye for thugs).
