But yes, dual clutch Subies would kick major ass. It would definitely help improve the fuel economy to get more of that horsepower and torque down on all four wheels. Anyway sorry... getting a little off topic here.
Oh it still uses that ancient 4 spd...terrible. How bout instead of shoving the sti body kit on your cars subbie, you update your powertrains and improve your interior quality since your starting to fall behind. They have a new updated boxer engine too, but from what I rear it puts out the same power and only gets 1 mpg better then the last one...not really sure what the point of the upgrade. Sorry very off topic
