there are a few
some are fast off the line
some can be made fast by aftermarket modifications
example 05 Scion tC
not that fast stock
but there are lots of parts for them
ive seen them doing 12 second runs
what model are you looking for?
american? import? european?
im guessing import because you posted in the import section
also what is your price limit

I guess i am looking for import and i really like the impreza WRX. I cant determine why the wrx is 70 hp less than the sti. They both have same size engine. Why is this? would i be able to mod the wrx to be like the sti?

from what i know the STi has a turbo
sure you can make the regular WRX like the STi performance wise
but go look around how much all of the dressup will cost
the gold rims
wing
hood scoop
plus the STi engine is made differently to work with the turbo
maybe the stock WRX one is not and you may run into some problems

**** lol i thought i was an idiot but it turns out you ****ers dont know shit accept for my home boy sideways who just talks shit and probably knows everything. The wrx has turbo as does the sti. Thats why im ****ing tripping off how the sti is so much faster because the engines are also the same.

DOnt post unless you know your shit please and recommend some good cars.

uuummmm, okay ... notice the little screwy smily next to my posts ... that represents sarcasm. That's why I said it. I know that the wrx is turbo, and I know that it has a scoop.

Go to this page http://www.grahamberry2.co.jp/impreza_gc8/
You will see that it's got different turbo and intercooler etc etc...
Just because 2 engines have the same capacity, it doesn't mean that they are the same engine, or that they are tuned the same, or that the auxiliary components ....

Happy now? I might not know it off the top of my head, but I found it pretty easily.

Did you even look? Or did you just come in here, expect someone to give you the answer straight away, then spew your mouth off when they didn't?
