Subaru STi budget build

In Drag, Video by fullboost

The pick of the bunch when purchasing an older Subaru, the 2001 WRX Sti featured factory forged pistons, variable valve timing and a much stronger 6-spd gearbox. With around 260hp on tap they were a solid performer out of the box.

Con’s STi improved on this by fitting a larger top mount intercooler, 3in exhaust and an APS turbo resulting in a quick 12.30 at 112mph quarter mile time on pump unleaded. More recently Con and the team at HCW Automotive have made the switch to an E85 flex fuel system, and a larger Blouch turbo resulting in around 360hp to the wheels.
