Well I finally picked up my WRX (hehe spent over $1000.00 on it before I even owned it) off my friend but he needed a ride to pick up his 2000 s4. We test drove the car and WOW is it loaded. That thing has it all and the red display is sweet. But after the test drive it just didn't feel that fast but it's a heavy car and that always makes it feel slower.
Well on the way home we did a few pulls from about 85 mph. First pull I stayed in 5th and he pulled about 2 cars on me to about 120. The second time I down shifted to 4th and pulled about 2 cars on him up to about 130mph. Well our fun got cut short since RT80 in Pa was at a dead stop for some reason. So we got out and talked. We were both shocked at the WRX's top end power compaired to the s4's 6cyl TT(and here I thought it was a single turbo). I thought for sure he was going to pull hard on me at those speeds.
My mods are.
TBE BPM GT Spec
Unichip w/ stage 2 map (Utec goes in tomorrow)
Hallman MBC (15.5 PSI)
and running crappy 91 octane.
The s4 was completely stock.
It was the 1st time I got to drive it since I only picked it up from him 2 hours before. Also downshifting to 4th I felt the rear lock in a little hard. I'm guessing I need to be a little smoother with shifting or is this normal?
In any case my first chance to roll the WRX and I'm happy with it.
Oh and we had a Sunfire roll up on us with, get this twin glass packs running out the back. I wouldn't believe it. I haven't seen a set of glass packs in years let alone on a new car. Sounded like shyt and was back firing like mad. I waited up for him thinking he might want to run but he just rolled by.. I hope he had a good sound system in it cause the poacks were loud at hell..
