what is the diff between the st185 and the st185rc wich one is beter would the st185rc be a beter swap to do than the st205 regular mondel not the st205 wrc

st205 engine will always be better.

st185 and st185rc, i think the rc has a little more hp, but i am not totally sure, when i was looking at clips, all i saw were st185rc's at 225hp

the jdm st185 is 225hp 200 lb ft torque
the usdm st185 is 200hp and 200 lb ft. of torque

i think that the WRC version is mostly just different body panels like the bumper and such

BUT on the ST205 i believe the the RC version like 500 made or something is like 260hp or so.

and again just like the st185 has WRC badging n such

the group a wrc 6th gen gt4s had 280hp and were about 100lbs lighter. the Best Motoring videos on the alltrac.net site are made with a group A gt4. the car has non functional anti lag and intercooler sprayers

and yes, there was only a limited production run of the wrc version of the 6th gen gt4.

as for the 5th gen wrc vs non wrc, i dont know of much differences besides body panels

Actually, the production model WRC GT-Fours had the same amount of power as the regular GT-Fours, which is 251 horsepower at 6000 rpm. They are not lighter, and in fact are probably a bit heavier due to the engine's antilag and intercooler spraybar. wink.gif

And there were 2500 WRC GT-Fours made by the way. smile.gif

that is correct. the water/air intercooler allowed for more build up potential. other than that, there aren't a whole lot of differences. i think the suspension might be tuned a little differently. the RC version is a nice swap, but it's about the same price as a ST205 engine cuz they are really rare. www.japandirect.com can get them, i'm not sure of anyplace else. www.jarcoinc.com probably can, but it might be a while.
