    So the 3.0 is heaps faster but it's hard to realistically achieve those times in a manual AWD anyway, because you have to take off slower otherwise you'll cook the clutch. Either of these cars would probably be better in Automatic because of this, however I just looked at the automatic version of the 2.5 and it's a full second slower to 100 then the manual. But that would be my reasoning. While the 3.0 is a lot faster the fuel economy drops to crap and used ones are still very expensive, around 15k for a good one. I got mine in mint condition for about 10k so for me the 3.0 wasn't even considered because of my budget.
    Ahhh thanks man, The fact is that it is still a damn nice car!
    I have driven a manual 3.0 and it was pretty fun, had some ridiculous mods for an N/A pushed 171 at the wheels on a dyno a couple of weeks ago

      There's more you can get out of it but like anything you've got to have the cash to do it.

        I always thought Australia had the 2.0 version like the JDM ones

        So you have a 2.5 non turbo?

          Used to have a 2008 2.5i in the 4spd Autobox, it was terrible. The shifts were slow and the box is often indecisive with the Sportshift "manual" mode refusing to hold gears near the redline.

              The auto is meant to be faster, with the sport mode or something but I don't know how it engages or anything. To me the manual version seems crazy faster to 100km/h then the auto, I don't know why because I've watched video's of the auto accelerating to 100 and it's like the computer doesn't want to go to the redline...

                So putting the KE70 aside for the weekend and the Liberty is going to get some attention. Putting in 2x Fusion 12" 1000w Subwoofers. Mounted the fuse this afternoon and going to wire in the adaptor tomorrow.



                Will have pics and a video maybe when finished. Should be complete in the next couple of days.

                These are coming from a mates Commodore, he's upgrading so I'm getting these cheap



                Note that they were still powerful enough to crack his spoiler, so I can hardly complain.

                      I googled those rims and they sure do look good, how much did they set you back?

                          I had CR Kai's on mine for a month or two, then they went onto a gen 3 sedan, then a gen 3 STi wagon. I think I sold them for 1200 or so, so not bad pricing.

                            I do want to put different wheels on it, but I think I'll most likely go with a second hand set that are just clean, nothing too loud

                              You can buy mine for $1,000... haha I find all my Subaru stuff through SubyClub, awesome forum with awesome people. Liberty.asn is also helpful, but the people are a little less friendly.
