08 STI vs 09 WRX
Another old video that I just found. A quick comparison of my wife's stock
09 WRX versus my 08 STI when it was running Cobb's Stage 2 91 map, with 94
octane in the tank. Runs were done on the same day, same temps, same
sections of road.
The 09 WRX is very impressive. If you watch the video closely you can see
how the stage 2 map on my STI has abrupt pauses in acceleration with each
gear change, whereas the WRX pulls smoothly. My car was definitely faster but the gear changes sort of evened
things out. There is something in the stage 2 91 OTS tune that causes this
- not sure if it is ignition overrun or what but my more recent tunes have
smoothed this out.

To complete our comparison, three editors submitted evaluation scores based
on their driving impressions, which were balanced against the realities of
price, performance and feature content. The results may surprise you.
2015 Subaru WRX STI: The Daily Driver Rally Car Returns! - Ignition Ep. 107
On this episode of Ignition, Carlos Lago tests the latest generation of the
perennial rally car favorite: The 2015 Subaru WRX STI. Much like the new
WRX, this STI has an entirely new and significantly stiffer body structure,
but unlike the WRX, it still uses the same 305 horsepower 2.5-liter turbocharged flat-four that's powered the car
since 2008. Our introduction to the car occurs at the press launch at Mazda
Raceway Laguna Seca. From there, we test the STI to see the performance
improvements and drive it on one of our favorite mountain roads. How does
the new STI stack up? Stay tuned to find out.
Ignition appears every other Monday on the Motor Trend youtube channel.

Subaru WRX vs. Ford Fiesta ST
We've been eagerly waiting a new WRX for a while now, and we've finally got
one! Matt takes the 2015 WRX 6MT out on the road to see how it does as a
newer, bigger, faster model, and
then we head over to Adams Motorsports Park to pit it head to head against
our Fiesta ST in an autocross.

The Harman Motive 3" turboback Exhaust for the 08 STi features full mandrel
bent stainless steel piping, cast bellmouth and high flow cat with polished

Without tuning we saw an increase of 11hp and 9 lb/ft at the wheels. After
a protune using the COBB AccessPort, gains of 34hp and 62lb/ft at the

World's Quickest and Fastest 2015 Subaru STi- TheShopCT
13203 Track Rental
Jimmy Kakaletris, owner of TheShopCT, takes his 2015 STi full-weight, daily
driven car to the track. After one pass of 10.48 @ 133mph the car was
booted from the track. At under 30psi of Boost and on pump gas, the car rockets its way
down the track on street tires making it the Quickest and Fastest to date.
Very impressive from all angles, not to mention an 80 degree day and
humidity over 60%.
