My buddy is bringing his turbo wrx to the race track in Feb or March. He has been a little smack talkin rasberry quief tart! We are going to race for money , so i can shut him up. He has already flaked on me twice @ the racetrack. But he always wants to race when we are chillin somewhere. I say everytime "save it for the track" penis face. He has a wr gay with a downpipe, boost controller, & intake. What will this fisher price, non torque mobile run in the quarter? Should I be scared or should I blast some Mudvaine, do a FAT burnout, launch @ 4,000 & be waiting at the finish saying "wait till I get my intercooled vortech" :lol:

WRX's (STi's included) are not really that fast. Stock. But since he has a boost controller might wanna find out how much PSI he is running. However, if you were running against an Evo 8, might wanna pick up that Vortech.

Not true sti's are fast. THey will beat a stock 03-04 cobra in every event. Not by much, but will beat it none-the-less.

There is a debate going on over on SVTP about this today actually. Many say cobra will smoke em, some say the STI. Either way, if I run into an STI and get beat, or any other car for that matter, that is just more motivation to install the next mod, or to look for the next mod.

My thought is this, if you are running sub 13s as you are right now, you will probably get the STI unless the driver is good or has a great shifting auto. The fact that the dude never wants to run you at the track, and only talks smack when you are chillin combined with the fact that you are running sub 13s in a GT, kind of points me to a conclusion he can't drive and you can. Either way, run him. If you lose, put on the vortech and then school him. If you win, put on the vortech and school him again even worse.

A stock 03/04 cobra will smoke a stock sti in a highway pull. When the STI loses the advantage of awd

stock WRX's run high 13s to low 14s stock. The thing is, is that stock turbo'd cars are EASY to increase hp. They come stock with a lot of air restriction for emissions. With a simple turbo-back exhaust (i know on my car and the STi's) can pick up almost 40whp... no joke. With his boost controller, the stock boost isnt going to fluctuate thru the boost controller solenoid so he will be holding more boost all the way to redline == more hp. I would be willing to bet he has shaved anywhere from 0.6-1.0sec off his ET from stock with intake, exhaust, boost controller, and tuned it. I would be willing to bet he is faster than a stock STi if he knows what he's doing.

Oh, and if he launches properly, he WILL beat you off the line. WRX's have awd and he won't spin. Just so you know and don't think you're king **** with a 4,000rpm clutch drop.

It will be a close race, but you should come out the victor by about 0.2-0.3sec.

Thanks for the help (answers) I thought sti's run like a 13 flat, guess I was wrong. I wish I could pass smog with a turbo. I want one so bad instead of supercharger.
