I loike the bug eyes. But I don't think he was asking about looks. I think e was wondering about driveability and stuff like that. I'd turbo a legacy over buying a wrx just for the comfort of a bigger car. Not to mention those wrx cloth interiors get all dirty and nasty compared our nice leather...

oh and insurance on a modded leg vs. a stock wrx should be a factor too. I bet the wrx will be more each month.

You’ll see an excellent view of the tail-lights should I encounter you on the beltway

Just kidding… You’re welcome to go for a ride anytime.. Question is, do you want to ride under the stock (wrx) turbo power, or in several weeks after I get the neck splitting VF22 installed?

Stock Wrx power. I have two other projects that vere far right from factory engine swaps. I still want the Scooby to be my DD if all else fails.

Currently stock turbo and injectors still. Got a VF22 with modded 820cc injectors, and an alky kit waiting to be installed.
