    Sure, it's noisy at 90 mph. Slow down! :P

    I'll take all the power outlets I can get. I need 3-4, at least 3.

    No, it's noisy at normal road speeds. :)

  • ateixeiraateixeira Posts: 72,587
    Define "normal". :D

    Speed is relative.

  • rshollandrsholland Posts: 19,786
    40 – 70 mph.

  • I really like the improvements Subaru made to the WRX in '06. That said, I can't help but wonder if Subaru made one small step backwards. When the WRX first came out much was made of the 113.5 HP per litre out-put that satisfied the notion that real performance motors are capable of at least 100 HP per litre. Seeing how Subaru already has a 250 HP version of this motor in their stable, and that the rest of the market has dramatically raised their HP ratings why not keep that criterion afloat and use the 250 HP engine. I seriously doubt that using this motor would really steal sales from the larger Legacy. I can't help but feel the Legacy appeals to a different market share. Perhaps in '07 we can see this upgrade. A front LSD and a 6 speed gear box would be nice too. An STI wagon would really be the ticket!

    We're talking about stated output, dyno charts have shown Subaru has sand-bagged a bit in the past. The supposedly 210hp version of that engine actually made more HP on the dyno than the 227hp 2.0l did.

    A lot of it is just marketing.

    I can't wait until Subaru uses the new SAE methods, which will hopefully be more accurate.

    As part of our forums reorganiazation, we're closing the general, everything in one pile discussions like this one and breaking out smaller discussions that deal with various aspects of the ownership and upkeep of the Impreza.

    Here in the Subaru Impreza Group you will now find discussions such as:

    New Subaru Impreza Owners - Give Us Your Report!
    Subaru Impreza Test Drive - What Did You Think?
    Subaru Impreza Real World MPG Numbers
    How Much Can My WRX Wagon Carry?
    Subaru Impreza Accesories & Modifications
    Changes You'd Like To See in the Subaru Impreza
    to mention a few.

    You will also now notice the Subaru Impreza Maintenance & Repair Folder which you can find above the list of discussions on the main group page. In that folder you will find the "problems" discussions set up to cover the major areas where you may have a question or problem, such as:
    Subaru Impreza Engine Issues
    Subaru Impreza Brake Questions
    Subaru Impreza Tire/Wheel Questions

    When you are ready to post, please check the discussion list for the appropriate place for your comment or question. If you have a question or issue that doesn't yet have a discussion set up for it, please use the Add A Discussion link to create a new one. This is especially true of comparison discussions. Rather than try to set up all the possible combinations of vehciles you may be shopping beforehand, these will come up as users create them for vehicles they are comparison shopping.

    There will be a bit of dust until we get things moved around, but we're getting there.

    Thanks for your help in making this group a great source of information on the Impreza.
