How you you guys with RS-T's compair your cars to STi's? The feel of the STi's are crazy good. don't even feel boost kick in. do our cars turboed feel the same or not as good? i know alot of that is due to tuning but, still. Let me know.

when my car is tuned the power is super smooth, all the way to redline... it gets screwy when I get someting new and try to test/tune myself and the power is choppy... its all about tuning, the better it is tuned the smoother/btetter it will run,.

to be honest I haven't driven an sti. I am assuming it will feel like WRX that has about 260whp, that is tuned correctly. or an RS-t that is tuned with about 260whp.

Haha, kinda funny that someone posted this since I was just talking about it to a friend of mine. To be honest, going from the RS-T to the STi wasn't that much of a change. I was running a custom TD05h-14b setup at 4-5psi. It had a very nice top end, but midrange was just ok. It was definately not as fast as the STi, but I think the power was more noticable since it wasn't as smooth. The STi has a nice midrange but dies off towards redline and it's so smooth you barely realize where you are. As a result, it feels like it isn't terrible fast but the speedo says otherwise. The big difference is in the driveline, the 6spd rocks...especially once you get used to all the shifting you have to do.

As for the guys saying their's kicks in way harder...I don't doubt it for a second I'm not disappointed in the power of the STi, but I think the driveline makes it perform the way it does, not the engine. That's just my opinion.

i'll say it once and i;ll say it again... you will never be able to build yourself an STI with the same amount of money and build quality as the STI... out of the box.. the best... its all the parts together that make it what it is...
