Video Is a 600HP Subaru STI Actually Worth It?

Video ✅ The Subaru WRX STI is a car of much debate. From the EJ’s notorious reputation of being either a powerhouse or a wear item – it seems to be pretty divisive car nowadays. I’ve had the opportunity to drive almost every kind of Subaru combination you could imagine – and my conclusions are almost always the same – so what’s different about this one? Thankfully Offtheline Peformance presented me with this Subaru WRX STI Limited – a Hawkeye STI With LEATHER INTERIOR and much more detailed goodies. It also helps that this package makes 600WHP in this four door rally monster. So is it worth driving a 600HP Subaru? Let’s talk about it. ✅ Is a 600HP Subaru STI Actually Worth It?

before we get started I just want to
0:33
give a huge thanks to today’s sponsor
0:35
upside upside is actually a cash back
0:37
app that enables people to get more
0:39
value from their purchases and what’s
0:41
even better is that it improves the
0:43
profitability of local businesses they
0:45
partner with over 30 000 businesses and
0:48
25 000 gas stations in 48 states plus
0:52
Washington DC upside is actually
0:54
extremely user friendly all you have to
0:56
do is open the app and claim an offer
0:58
for whatever you’re kind of looking for
1:00
it’s so easy because all you have to do
1:02
is check in at the business claim the
1:04
offer and then you just use your debit
1:06
or credit card and then just go about
1:08
your day and then you get paid and the
1:10
cash appears in your upside account and
1:12
you can cash out at any time whether
1:14
it’s through bank transfer PayPal or an
1:16
e-gift on Amazon Starbucks and dozens of
1:20
other places and there’s no limit to how
1:22
much you can earn and you can just
1:24
transfer that cash into your checking
1:25
account and it’s real cash back it’s not
1:28
a loyalty program or a point system it’s
1:31
easy to understand and it’s real cash
1:33
back and it’s loved by users and
1:36
businesses alike because it just helps
1:38
out everybody with gas prices so high I
1:40
personally use upside the most for
1:42
getting gas and what’s really cool about
1:44
it is you open the app and it tells you
1:46
all the local prices of everything from
1:49
premium to regular gas prices and also
1:51
the return or cash back from going to
1:54
this gas station in particular to get
1:56
started click the link below and
1:58
download the free upside app in the app
2:00
store or Google Play use my promo code
2:02
that dude and get five dollars or more
2:05
cash back on your first purchase of 10
2:07
or more you know I always say that I
2:10
need to stop reviewing Subarus because
2:12
none of them are different enough and
2:14
I’ve done pretty much every Subaru in
2:16
existence well I finally found a
2:18
different one this is the 2007 Subaru
2:22
STI Limited now what makes the limited
2:25
different from say all the other ones
2:26
well the motor
2:28
is the same it’s more so the little
2:30
details now the STI Limited doesn’t have
2:33
a wing believe it or not it’s wingless
2:35
and at the same time it has a sunroof
2:38
and leather interior if you notice it’s
2:40
a little bit different of a vibe in here
2:42
because usually when you drive the STIs
2:44
it has the blue interior inserts and
2:46
stuff like that so that is kind of a
2:48
nice change of pace as well oh yeah I
2:50
forgot to mention this makes 600
2:52
horsepower
2:55
good
2:59
so this is one of 800 and there’s 400 of
3:02
them in white and 400 of them in Gray
3:05
only GD STIs had the sunroof and the
3:08
wingless trunk and the black calipers
3:10
and even the black carpet is different
3:12
from a lot of the STIs the Turbo System
3:14
is an ETS rotated kit with a Garrett
3:17
g3770 with titanium piping and toway
3:21
exhaust it’s got the OTL virgin motor
3:23
and OTL 600 horsepower package so the
3:26
call was built by off the line
3:27
performance they’re incredible people
3:29
extremely smart and they specialize in
3:32
series but they build just about
3:34
everything the cool thing is about it
3:36
there’s the OTL actually right behind me
3:38
there’s their sign but the cool thing
3:40
about it is they help me with their
3:41
roadkill nights Dodge project with the
3:43
Hellcat red eye Magnum swap
3:47
thank you
3:51
so they can learn to adapt pretty
3:53
quickly and off the line has been
3:55
building faster Brews for over a decade
3:58
so it’s pretty awesome stuff so if you
4:00
think about it this is the Subaru that
4:03
kind of checks everybody’s boxes it’s
4:05
comfortable it has a six-speed
4:07
transmission it’s got a built EJ so one
4:11
big thing about Subarus the biggest
4:14
gripe I have you’ve heard it a million
4:15
times it’s not even the unreliability or
4:18
the quality control it’s more so that
4:21
they use the same engine forever right
4:24
it just kind of got stale and yes the fa
4:26
is different but when it came to the
4:29
boxer platform I typically thought about
4:31
the EJ now the other thing about this
4:33
car is that this kind of proves you can
4:36
actually have these cars launch almost
4:39
perfect as a streetcar Justin the owner
4:42
of this car and also the rsti one of my
4:46
favorite Subarus I’ve ever reviewed
4:49
mmm
4:52
[Music]
5:01
which was essentially the Subaru RS with
5:05
a fully built SDI swap in it making 700
5:08
horsepower Justin
5:10
knows how to launch these cars from a
5:12
dig and when he launched this thing I
5:15
was blown away from how smooth it was
5:21
typically with the evos and the STIs
5:23
when you do a dig launch they get this
5:25
really bad wheel hop and this kind of
5:27
like and then it goes
5:33
[Music]
5:40
this thing just goes it is incredible to
5:44
see it launch also side note we are at
5:47
ice cream Cruise out with 13 20 video
5:49
and he raced a mark 5 Supra with a
5:51
little bit of work done to it and it
5:53
wasn’t even a race by the end so it was
5:55
pretty cool to see this is a back half
5:57
like crazy and Subarus let’s be real a
6:01
big part of it is their personality
6:03
[Music]
6:06
foreign
6:11
this having the wingless trunk it’s kind
6:14
of funny that the special edition one is
6:17
the one without the wing typically when
6:19
brands do kind of upgraded versions of
6:21
their sporty cars they put more arrow on
6:24
it but this time you’re like no we’re
6:25
gonna go kind of more of a sleeper look
6:27
and put less arrow on it which I thought
6:30
was an interesting decision
6:36
foreign
6:52
build I have ever driven typically when
6:55
I drive a fast Subaru and you get that
6:58
wastegate footer you know it has this
7:00
weird chop to it it’s like it’s like
7:03
this chug
7:05
foreign
7:08
[Music]
7:19
of it this one the wastegate sounds like
7:22
it’s doing everything right and it
7:24
doesn’t have as aggressive of that chop
7:26
a lot of times when you drive a fast
7:28
Subaru feel like it’s gonna break at any
7:30
moment
7:30
[Applause]
7:34
oh
7:36
oh man Justin’s RCI was the consider for
7:39
my favorite Subaru
7:41
this one’s gonna be close Also let’s
7:43
talk about the different faces of super
7:45
right the different grills I think the
7:47
Hawkeye is the perfect blend of old
7:51
Subaru The Blob eye is a second for me
7:53
it also rides extremely smooth but
7:56
whenever you ride in the suit where you
7:58
sit a little bit high up that’s one
7:59
thing I’ve always noticed and it’s like
8:01
would you like to see the hood scoop sir
8:04
like it’s like no choice you gotta know
8:06
what you’re driving
8:10
foreign
8:12
[Music]
8:15
the number one thing though about this
8:17
car
8:18
admittedly is the end angered Bay the
8:21
engine bay is absolutely beautiful the
8:25
titanium exhaust work the single turbo
8:28
setup with the intake with the titanium
8:30
colors around it it has a Billet
8:32
aluminum intake manifold that just sets
8:34
everything off as well oh
8:39
[Music]
8:44
yeah the all-wheel drive grip kind of
8:47
throws you off and also the bushings do
8:49
have to be replaced in the shifter so
8:51
I’m being
8:53
tell but you know this is Justin’s baby
8:56
and you gotta be careful at the same
8:59
time
9:00
the same time
9:03
it’s still pulls like a freight train
9:05
first gear is
9:07
a short second gear really gets going
9:09
third and fourth gear are the magic
9:10
gears in this thing Justin and the team
9:12
at off the line when they got their
9:14
hands on this very rare limited edition
9:16
Subaru they put their heart and soul it
9:20
has all the best parts of the business
9:22
the suspension the wheels and tires the
9:25
brakes the taillights are even brand new
9:27
the headlights are the only thing a
9:28
little fogged up but they’re gonna fix
9:30
those as well but honestly this color
9:33
this white color has this Pearl in it
9:35
that’s just gorgeous in the Sun
9:40
yeah when it comes to just like being
9:42
able to drive around town go fast slow
9:45
down it doesn’t feel too race car I know
9:48
that might not sound like a compliment
9:50
but this kind of meets in the middle
9:53
it’s definitely fast enough he has the
9:56
RCI as his race car this still beat a
9:59
whole bunch of people at ice cream
10:00
Cruise
10:01
it checks all the boxes
10:05
come on
10:07
honestly I think
10:10
unless I find a Subaru that’s insanely
10:14
different from this one I don’t think
10:16
I’m gonna review one for a while because
10:18
this one really satisfies and fulfills
10:21
the need of the Subaru and shows that
10:23
the EJ can be done right it’s a
10:26
love-hate relationship to build one of
10:27
these cars I don’t care what anybody
10:29
says it’s just part of the game and on
10:31
that note what do you guys think about
10:33
the Limited STI
10:36
awesome it’s a really perfect package
10:39
for a Subaru in fact it’s a contender
10:41
for my favorite super I’ve driven for
10:43
sure and on that note I’ve bled on
10:45
Tuesdays Thursdays and Sundays and I
10:47
will see you guys next time take it easy
10:49
have a wonderful day goodbye
10:52
[Music]
11:03
thank you
