Most of us have heard that the 09 WRX has the VF52 turbo in it. What about the 09 STI? Do we know what turbo it's getting or what kind of gains it could give a WRX? ??? ???

From what I have read it is the same as the 08 STI. AFAIK no changes are in store for the 09 STI (so same turbo as 08)...though I cannot confirm this 100% as I have not seen an 09 STI under the hood.

That is correct I believe. I think that there is a difference in the turbo housings according to the "Drive" magazine that Subaru sent me. I think the 09 sti is still rated at 305 engine hp.

In Aus the STi costs about $50000US so its a shame that it come with its $33000 US brothers turbo!? I mean I own a wrx but that would kinda suck for the money + insurance differences!?

That's what i was thinking, does that means you would be paying 1.5X the cost for 30hp? and some handling mods ???
