I personally hate that new grille, but the chargespeed kit eliminates it which i like. Nice choice of car. No change in engine, but i believe the drivetrain has been modified a little bit

They tuned a stock 07 to 271whp/330TQ BONE STOCK!!! Its the ECU its crazy :)

And it still makes the exact same amount of power...300hp to the fly? That's what it says in current magazines.

I know the 2.5 L wrx was underrated, so I assume the sti is also then?
The JDM Sti is underrated, not sure about the USDM model though. Most USDM models are detuned for emissions purposes. The JDM Evo MR produces something like 330hp while the USDM only makes a lousy 286. What I don't understand is, that JDM cars have to be handicapped when they come over here, but we are still building big displacement gas guzzling v8's that have worse emissions probably than any j-spec car. What a bunch of American hypocrites.
