well

Maybe that is why they put the rev limiter on the models, because people were revving it to the redline, and then dropping the clutch! Both cars are insanely fast, the WRX will treat you to a better ride, but if you want to feel 100% connected, get the EVO...

you want to put bolt ons

you want to put bolt ons then get the WRX sti. If you are going for pure power then get EVO.

STI's had problems with trannies too, I think the 04 models got it fixed.

I wouldn't get neither of those cars, STi is more reliable but I don't need a car that looks ugly like that.

I love the 3rd gen rx7. They have engine problems but if you swap in a LS1 then the problems go away.

OK already

The EVO is meant to be an agressive-looking vehicle and smokes just about anything out there.

Check out my Avatar -- does it look ugly there?

I agree -- I had tons of tranny probs, even with proper break-in (bad run of transmissions). When it ran, it works well for both race and 4-doorness.

But yes, the STI (big I this year) reigns supreme. I should've gotten one of those instead -- I might still have had it today (bad for mileage tho :P and speeding is just way too easy }

Honestly drive either of these cars and you'll be impressed.

Maximas with 3.5 swap now

Maximas with 3.5 swap now run 13 flat and soon mid 12's.

Basically a 95-99maxima with the 3.0 taken out and 3.5 put in. It will get about 20mpg around city and 30mpg on the freeway if you drive it right. Now that will smoke an evo.

rh77 have you seen the famous video of a civic hatch smoking a yellow EVO??? This just proves you don't have to buy a 30k car in order to go fast.

For roughly $10,000 I was smoking the **** out of Mustang GT's and nearly all 4 cylinders with my Civic.

If you're willing to do the work yourself, you don't have to spend that much to blow away the competition.

The funny thing about this is that there is a guy a few minutes from my house that took a 2.2 prelude engine and is making 793whp...

Good lord. But If he used a 2.4 liter he would be boosting 650whp and be about the 1/4 mile time. Having a bigger engine will have a bigger torque curve most of the time. That's why NA maximas with 3.5 engine can beat supercharged 3.0 maximas

Small block

I'm still waiting to see someone try to shoe-horn a small block v8 into a civic or something. Kinda like when they put big blocks in a Datsun way back when.
