Don't question the horizonally opposed engines. They are neater than a 90* V

Acceleration is ferocious, with a 0-60 time under five seconds, onetime supercar territory. The American-spec engine, at 2.5 liters, is larger that that used in other parts of the world, and is also different from that used in the regular WRX. Four valves per cylinder with variable valve timing, and plenty of boost at 14.5 psi result in high power output and remarkable civility. I spent far more time in commute traffic than on uncrowded fun roads (welcome to the real world...) and the STi was no more difficult to drive than any other stick-shift car. The optional short-throw shift linkage for the six-speed gearbox is highly recommended, as it markedly improves shifting. Turbo lag is not a problem at engine speeds over 2500 rpm, and from there to just past the 6000 rpm power peak power is instantaneous. With the hefty midrange torque available, there is no need to get acquainted with the electronic rev-limiter. Fuel consumption is reasonable with light throttle; keep the boost up and you'll pay at the pump. Just add it to the entertainment budget.

Realisticly , they can handle more power than stock without problem.
(If the car is well driven and maintain)


The guy i know have only broke one thing on the engine, and you cant even imagine how hard he drives it.
And its a 11 seconds car.

I would buy one right now if i had enought money.

2.5L. 2.0 in Japan.

I think of the boxer as the "180 degree V".
