Well..I have done both motors in my 2000 RS...currently I have the USDM WRX motor in mine....I had previously done a Minnam stage 2 on my 2.5 motor....Without a shadow of a doubt I am Very Glad I have the USDM motor in it far as low end...Bahhhhh....I disagree with that....I have more power and torque in my 2.0 than I ever did with the RS motor even with a aftermarket turbo kit on it.....I am coming on boost at 1700 RPMs.....Full Boost is about 2300.....My car is as fast as a STi is new....I do have a few upgrades to the motor tho.. ...BPM Turbo back, Uppipe, UTEC, Deadbolt Speed Turbo, Extrude honed manifold, Port matched intake and Intercooler, Perrin Goodies (inlet pipe and intercooler hoses) for flow..and 16.5 lbs of boost... ...and the most important parts
is the RS gearing... and the lighter weight...Oh...Dyno'd HP to the wheels....242 with 245lb of torque at 4100 RPM's... so I personally think its a matter of what you like.......
