Lightweight & nimble > bulky & a garbage ride.

The only downside is that people want too much money for Subaru parts, especially the mechanical LSDs you would find only in the STI Trans/Rear Diff.
That was my original plan but as you said, they cost quite a bit in almost new condition. A friend suggested I should just buy a junkyard Subaru and gut it. On the other hand I'm more toward just using Subaru for technical trails and as a daily while autocross in the Saturd.
