Hmm do you know anything about Subaru amazing that the WRXs were just as stout and cheaper than the STi. Saying the STi is the only one worth talking about is ignorant.

TO bad half the information is wrong I have the dealer books on those cars hell I was in Japan when they were released. The RA never had the option of A/C period trust me I asked. A throw away engine hell the JDM 205 is twice the engine the USDM is. Besides the fact there are more than a few around pushing on 400ps I don't think they are that disposable. It might amaze you to know that most WRXs prior to the Neon look are alot faster than the STi!!!
yeah, your mostly right, but the 205 isnt better compared to the 207. the reason for the designation change between the STi and regular WRX in the V5 and up was because the regular WRX motors below the V5 could be easily caught up to the STi with a larger turbo. the 20g and 20k blocks were the same for the STi version and the WRX. the 205 is weaker than the 207. and in all technicality, the JDM 205 is only 1.1 times the engine that the USDM is.
250/227=1.108 but it does have better response and torque.
