Subaru R-STi - JDM vs USDM: A Friendly Rivalry -- /TUNED
In the US, we never got the best Subaru of them all, the first generation
WRX coupe, getting stuck with the fun-but-not-fast 2.5RS version. One of
the more popular upgrades for those cars is the "R-STi" drivetrain swap. In
the season premiere of Tuned, we look at two approaches: the USDM
drivetrain swap, and the JDM drivetrain swap. Which is better? You decide.

Access Port piggyback ECU and track tuned suspension. This is my third WRX,
I purchased this car with the mods and tune done. I know there is more but
this is all I know. The car ran an 11.2 QM and reaches 60 mph in aprox 3.2
seconds. My 65 year old uncle who has raced cars his whole life and owns
multiple 600+ HP cars one of which is a wheelies Kit car with a blown 454
producing 650 WHP took a ride in this Subie and said after the ride that it
was the fastest car he had ever driven. I am sure he has had a few 10
second cars or even high 9 sec. He said it was the fastest car he had
driven but I doubt it. I would say that it is the fastest 0-100 he had ever
driven. Old dudes have no idea what horse power can do in combination with
AWD. He was blown away. I just got the car last month and have already
raced a new Z06 Vette from a 2nd gear roll and pulled 5 links on him to 145

Picked this car up off a friend of mine 2 years ago. I believe it used to
be called "SVXtasy" or something along those lines. I just call her
It's sat in the garage for a while now, so I decided to take it out for a
quick warm up, drive around the block, and the ubiquitous "idle and rev"
video (this one).

the gearbox and the weather WAS NOT turbo weather with ambient temperatures reaching
