Thats because the 05 RS and 05 GSR now have the 10.5 turbocharger compressor housing compared to their old 9.8.Originally Posted by scubee
MR's and GSR's are cool and all, but the evo to be REALLY worried about is the 05 RS, they only come in red and white, and have no spoiler and they are the lightest model of the 3. I roll with Southern California Evolution owners club twice a meet (socalevo.net , I'm ScoobySteve) and romping an 05 RS with a WRX is one hella tough thing to aspire. I have a TBE, UP, and cobb relfash, for stage 1, (not 2, I'm saving for a UTEC) but I ran my friend's 03 RS, from 1st to 3rd we're dead even, after 4th, he's just gone. Our stocker TD04 just runs outta oomph top end compared to a stock evo's 16g.
I thought I could roll an 05 RS with my setup and was extremely humbled. He had an 05 RS with the 10.5 housing, TBE, intake, EM. Despite the fact that the RS is the lightest weighing car of all 3 EVO's, his RS was 150 lbs lighter than a normal RS, replacing everything that could be, from steel to titanium.He owned me from the get go.
But I can still womp most of them on the touge, especially on downhill
