WRX Frenzy

Japanese WRX or standard turbo?

This section deals with the Japanese specification WRX which is available in the UK via grey import routes. Some markets such as Hong Kong, Cyprus and New Zealand get these as standard, as of course do the home Japanese market. These vehicles are NOT the same as the normal export New Age WRX or the older version Australian WRX which for the purposes here is the same as the UK 208/215bhp specification.

Before I go any further regarding Japanese imports, an important message.

Do NOT run an import on normal 95RON unleaded.

Anything less than Super Unleaded (and some advocate Super PLUS an octane booster addative) or Shell Optimax and it will go bang.
