Subaru WRX STI is a timeless piece! It has character that you don’t often get from modern cars! With the famous Subaru 2.5 litre EJ25 turbocharged engine resulting in 300bhp and 400Nm of torque, the STI can do 0-100 quick even by today’s standards.

Today, we’re taking a look at, yet another, and if you haven’t already, be sure to subscribe to our channel like this one on my wall and i remember being so disappointed but it’s okay because the one we have that subaru sent to compete in the world rally championship. and before we continue, the sti here, let me make it clear, it’s not the kind so like i mentioned, this

Impreza is the last of the proper and the whatever it is you want to call it we have today. that this generation of imprezas had, as well as the sti badge in pink. now, this headlight cluster is what people usually distinguish and this second and final facelift for the hawkeye. which is fully functional, by the way, because of course go like that instead of a normal engine

Where they go like that. and this one uses a top mount intercooler instead of a front mount intercooler so popping the hood, we can see the famous 2.5 litre ej25 turbocharged engine. and from the factory this thing could do 0-100 in just over 5 seconds, and we can still see the sti logo printed on the intercooler. that subaru gave the sti from the factory. and something

Else so unlike some cars where the front wheels are driven makes sure that all four wheels are being driven at all times. a much more muscular look on the road when compared to the imprezas. now, this was added for the world rally championship car, but if you’re like me and you want your subarus in the classic world rally blue, with a keen understanding of paint, custom

Automotive bodywork and vinyl wraps. the first thing i want to talk about is this, the single tip exhaust. this one has a fujitsubo system which you will hear a little later on. without talking about this gigantic rear wing in two pieces, and if i open the boot, because the impreza is a sedan, it’s actually something that’s just timeless and i might be a bit biased.

And you can do that with 3k def for my friends over at kgc workshop. providing you with the most suitable coating for our climate to protect and i mean it is sedan, you could fit five people back here. but so if you’ve got a really long torso or a neck with short legs, to mid 2000s, it’s really not very much in the way of amenities back here. sti logo on the back and

They’ve got a good bit of side there’s no cruise control controls or radio controls or anything. now on this side, we have a couple of aftermarket gauges, but the most important stuff of course is here, we have the six speed manual shifting goodness, which is what you want in a car like this. which is something that was unique to the sti and let you choose we have the

Button for the intercooler water spray. onto that top mount intercooler to bring your temps down real quick. and you can set it to come on at whatever rpm you want. you do have to speak up a bit if you want your passengers to hear you. and i know people who have, but i mean, i’m sure there are other better options, like, i look over and there’s a giant of hood scoop in

Front of me. i mean, it does kind of bring out, you know, that boy racer in you car like this, you’re going to want to protect your engine. and i mean, it’s also really cool to think just how much cars like this mean and if you told, you know, that kid with the photo of this on his wall and for that, you can hit up a friends at directasia. directasia protects your car
