I think it's more evidence that here in the States we're finally getting some of Japans better automotive technology, and that we're going to see US vehicle line-ups grow...It's about time...Personally, I like the STi better, but the EVO is no slouch...

i really like the evo8, i think that mitsubishi couldn't have done much better with the design. the evo8 could out-muscle the sti anyday, especially because it runs about 18psi stock, which is adjustable, whereas the sti runs about 12psi, and it's not adjustable.

30 bucks for that and you have adjustable boost

As for performance.

The evo turbo is a TD05HR-16G6-9.8T which isn't very big. On the other hand the STi 2004 model has a T22 ( Think thats what they call them) which is a pretty good size turbo for a standard car.

So I don't think a evo8 would out muscle a STi. STi is heavier but has more power. As for adjustable boost from factory. Thats news to me and 18psi, that news to me again. I think you'll find its more like 12psi like the STi. 18psi and 271hp is pretty lame. Sr20det @ 10psi can put out 250hp.

You can have a small turbo running 18psi, yet a larger turbo running 12psi will make more power.

I'm not even speaking about which vehicle could beat the other...I think it'd be pretty even and a good battle...My only reason for saying I like the STi better is because if you parked 2 next to each other and told me to pick one I'd take the Subaru...I respect the EVO's capabilities, the STi is just more appealing to me...

57ock raised a lot of good points, that until previously i was unaware of. but, in the end, both of them are very respectable imports. if i had to choose, i would still go with the evo.

id take the evo over sti, although i would get a front grill conversion to the evo 7 one, i think it looks dumb with the little bit in the middle, looks like a holden.

I don't know, I don't like how the newest Impreza looks like.I think Subaru should've stayed with the round headlights instead of the new kind of blocky ones.Here's a pic of the one I like.
