What should you know about this Subaru WRX STI?

The 2017 model of the Subaru WRX STI, with its robust 2.5-liter engine, underwent an impressive transformation into a powerful machine with 650 horsepower, thanks to a thorough upgrade of its drivetrain. The engine was completely rebuilt with high-quality components, including reinforced pistons, connecting rods, and a modified crankshaft, allowing for a significant increase in power without compromising reliability. For optimal performance and precise tuning, an advanced Motec engine management system (ECU) has been installed. This system provides extensive capabilities for fine-tuning fuel delivery, ignition timing, and turbo pressure, essential for maximizing engine performance and maintaining durability under demanding conditions. An integral part of this power enhancement is the installed 'rotated turbo' configuration. By rotating and optimizing the turbocharger for maximum air intake and pressure, the engine's potential is fully realized, resulting in quicker throttle response and improved power delivery across the entire RPM range.
