Totally agree with MrTris. I have a 2.5i as well, I understand that want and need for more power…I get it. it sucks sometimes. However, after lowering my car on coilovers…Its the best handling car I've ever driven. I absolutely love curvy back roads. puts a smile on my face every time.
On another note, another 2.5i driver told me this through the forums: "the 2.5i is a lot like a civic (i know…it's not easy to hear
) but if you keep the RPM's high when you really trying to push it to the limit and play with the sport mode… you will love this car and be surprised with what it can do." …..
So,…I gave it a shot. I went down curvy back roads with a friend in a WRX and he was having a hard time keeping up…. I just kept my RPM's high and was usually in 2nd gear. the coilovers gave me an advantage… hope this helps. sorry for rambling..
