    Thanks alot man. Yeah the SRT-4 was moving very well, 315fwhp and 375fwtq on 93 piss pump gas, but traction was such a B**CH! Coming out of a corner I had to keep playing with the throttle to keep the front tires from spinning. I had 235/40/18's on there with Nitto 555 tires and Tein Coilovers and 2nd gear was absolutely useless, not to mention 1st gear.

    I got so pissed off I said hell with it. I went for fun to drive and EVO IX, and that was all she wrote. The handling, brembo brakes, Recaro seats, AWD, it was the car for me. It has 1,600 miles and so far I added a Buschar Racing 02 housing and a 3inch turboback exhaust system, along with a K&N drop in filter.

    My buddy's SRT in the pictures with the "Bling" wheels has the following:
    Injen Short Ram Intake
    Mopar Stage 1
    Mopar Short Throw Shufter
    3inch turboback exhaust
    AGP Waste Gate Actuator running 17psi spike down to 15psi at redline
    Upp Pipe with HKS SSQV and AGP Block Off Plate

    We raced from a 40mph roll when I was BONE STOCK down to the paper air fliter and I beat him all the way up to the end of 4th gear, which is around 120mph and when I shifted into 5th he started to pull on me. By 150mph he had 1 car on me. Now with just a drop in filter and a 3inch turboback he will not catch me with the mods he has. We are going to race friday to see what happens.

    Thanks for the compliment :)

    You had the blue SRT-4 right?

    And if I got an import it would probably be an evo or a 240sx. Nice!

    Yeah that was me, I had the Blue SRT. The last pics that I posted of it on this board were old, I did some more things to it before I sold it.

    I don't know much about turbos let alone Evos. It is a single turbo located underneath the car in the exhaust with a front mount intercooler right? And I didn't know they were AWD so it is very comparable to an STi?

    It is a single turbo

    The turbo is in the front of the engine (by front I mean by the front bumper), which makes it failry easy to get to.

    Yes it has a FMIC

    It is AWD and it's main competitor is the STI.

    Both are great cars. STI has a nicer interior, the EVO comes with wider tires, faster on the track, responds better to modifications. The EVO is a 2.0 turbo and the STI is a 2.4 turbo.

    The argument has been beaten to death, you have to drive both to see which one you presonally like better. For me it was the EVO.

    I have really nothing bad to say about the STI, I drove it and drove it hard. The MAIN decision in my purchase was that I got my EVO for $30,200 brand new out the door while the STI was $36,000 out the door. I was looking at the STI limited, link to features here: http://www.subaru.com/sub/misc/2007/sti/index.html

    Here is what it looks like:

    I have never regretted my purchase once. The EVO puts a smile on my face everytime I drive it!

    I don't know how they drive, but the evo definately has the edge looks wise.

    Thanks man.

    I posted on the SRT forums and the majority of the people said nice trade up. Only a few haters said why an EVO, so my response was drive your neon to a Mitsubishi or Subaru dealership, test drive the EVO or STI and you will have your answer.

    thats exactly what happened to me :) I got my sti for 21k w/ 12k on the clock in 04, thats why I went suby over the evo...but evo would have been my car of choice.

    I still think that EVOs are Ugly and SRT4's are FUGLY...But thats because i REALLY hate evo interiors and the Horrible turbo lag the new evo has.

    ....Dump the Evo and ditch the wing and it would look pretty cool...evo wings kill the car
