There's one particular car that gets the juices of Subaru fan boys bubbling and that is a 2 Door STI. Not to be confused with the highly collectable and way more expensive 22B, this Version 5 STI is the newest addition to the Mighty Car Mods Garage, it's far from perfect, which makes it perfect to modify! Today we take it for a test drive around the track.

  • I sold my wide body Type R last year to a company who raffled it off as a prize. It was amazing only 34k miles on the chassis but a forged engine pushing out 420hp with the 6 speed box. Interior was unmarked and it had the Lamco gauge set and boost pod... It was mental.

  • What is the model code, which should be on a plate next to left front strut tower. If it’s a JDM model it should read GC8E2DD. WRX Type R STi V4, they came with DCCD, (drivers control centre diff) couldn’t see any evidence of this. So if it hasn’t got that then you have a watered down version of the 2nd most special version, also came with a close ratio gear box. They were homologated models.

  • There were a ton of 4-door WRX STi’s imported here in the UK, and they were always rated at 280 - 300bhp. Definitely not the ‘gentleman’s agreement’ power limit. No manufacturer really stuck to that anyway. On paper, yes, under the bonnet, heck no. The other special 2-door that was maybe only made for the UK market was the WRX STi P1, by ProDrive who did the WRC team cars. Awesome machines.

  • I've got a similar alarm system in my Bugeye WRX Wagon. The code switch dies after a few years, they're cheap metal domes that fatigue and break. What's even better is taking it to a garage and explaining how the system works. You can guarantee that 10 minutes later the alarm will be going off and you'll have to go back and sort it out. It does make MOT's very fun.
