How do these babies compare? It looks like they are both going to be street rippers, although in one magazine it was blurted out that the Subaru will no longer have 280bhp, but 300bhp! Any opinions?

STi owns the US Mitsu VIII. perhaps if Mitsu sent over the japan-spec EVO VII, it might be a contest.....but as it stands, the STi will decimate it. i mean, think about it, 300 HP Turbo 2.0L Six-speed with AWD, 3 differential settings(Snow,Dirt,Track), Limited slip......all for 30k[bigeyes]

looks like the G has some competition![:D]

Definitely STI. I considered waiting for one, but wasn't able to get beyond the huge "boy racer" wing and pay over MSRP. Plus the G is much more suited to my daily driving habits. The STI would be a great AutoX car if you're into that, something I doubt I'll ever do.

BTW, the US STI is a 2.5L and should have a good bit more low-end torque than the 2.0L Evo and modded WRXs. The Mitsu does have a twin-scroll turbo for faster spool up, but I don't think it will hang with the STI except in handling, which it may be superior. One of these days I'm going to go test drive an Evo just for kicks, I just love the feel of a turbo kicking in.

I'm feeling that. My last car was a turbocharged G20T with an SR20DET motor. Was pulling 25lbs with a T3/T4 hybrid, and I miss it already. Been only 1 month...
