    0-60 in 5.3 seconds and like what a 14.0 1/4 mile?
    in an 'suv' sounds fun and it's pretty cheap. thoughts?

    are you sure you have the numbers right? i thought it was 0-60 in 8 secs and it only has 210 hp? or maybe i read the stats for the baja? but the new forrester looks pretty good :bigthumb:

    You've gotta get a diff turbo, piping, IC and a few other parts. I'm sure you can GET the power rating from less, but to completely replicate the STi drivetrain, that's all you need.

    I'd probably take it over the similarly priced WRX wagon. It's more of a sleeper, has more torque, and is more practical. I could always do something to the suspension later.

    It's not a Porsche. It's a station wagon.

    Never said it was a Porsche. If you've ever driven one you'd know that they are very tipsy cars. You need to beef up the suspension alot in order to make it handle well.
