Sorry to threadjack, but is the STI ABS pump different/better/less intrusive? I have an '06 STI 6 speed, with DCCD pro etc. and was wondering if that would be a worthwhile upgrade on my 03 WRX.
Yes the STi ABS is way better than the 02-03 WRX ABS which sucks by comparison (when ABS engages it releases too much braking to the other wheels because it's not 4 wheel independent). I'm pretty sure there was a (not recall) bulletin that Subaru would swap the the ABS computer on the early WRX models for free.
