These models were upgraded from the standard WRX in many categories, including blueprinted performance tuned engines, transmissions, and suspensions. The STi versions of the WRX were immensely successful in rallies and popular among street racers but were only sold in the Japanese market. Often referred to as the forbidden fruit in the United States, it has been a long wait for these rally car icons to reach eligibility for import. Having just crossed the 25 year threshold this wonderfully preserved STi is a legitimate time capsule. The V3 STi had seen major upgrades as opposed to the prior two variants. Multi-point Injection, a new IHI Turbo allowing more boost to be added, larger intercooler, Molybdenum Piston coating, and revised camshaft timing and lift. The brought the HP and torque numbers up to roughly 280HP and 260lb-ft of torque. The brakes were also made larger to accommodate for the increase in power. An automated spray system was also added to keep the intercooler cool. With under 85,000 original miles, this STi is an incredible find.  For rally car enthusiasts and collectors this offers the opportunity to own a true piece of 90s JDM history. Whether your goal is to daily drive or have a clean base to build off it’s always best to start with a well maintained example like this one. These are extremely difficult to come across in Japan in general. If you are in the market for a JDM unicorn this is the one for you.
