    thats tight that there really fast evos, but to make a car fast all you need is enough money. Someone is always going to have more. And drag equals=sux.

    Well yes and no. As a previous poster said, the Evo has 10 years on our shores with the 4G63 (except changing the main bolts due to crank walking). Give it some time and we'll see what kind of potential our blocks have. Right now the weak link materially are the ringlands, and even then, good tuning makes it a non-issue. I give the Evo props for some serious history and modability. But I still like my STi better!

    I'll never understand why these cars have such short gears; moreso the STi. The 2.5 makes a ton of power in a wide rpm range so why handicap it with gears that get you 10 mph and it's time to shift? Space the first 4 out reasonably, give it a 5th that reaches till at least 140, and then a deep 6th for interstate cruising. You'd move the driving feel of these cars up to another level.

    because everybody in the wrx community complained about wrx's tall gearing

    The same gears people ***** about at stock power levels become much loved when you make double the hp.

    People complained that a 6spd Stealth is quicker than the 5spd because with the 5, you can go to 90 in 2nd gear and 120 in 3rd. Everybody wanted a 6spd conversion. Now they're realizing that with massive hp, the 5spd can really make use of the power and not have to shift nearly as much.

    At least the WRX and STi get to see 7000 rpm; they limited my poor car to 6500 for some stupid marketing decision.

    i saw a direct port injection wrx on a mag made me drool. i think it ran low 11's high 10's. sti turbo supporting mods and n2o its very doo able
    If you are talking about Curt in his EVO running a 10.9 on the stock turbo then you are incorrect. This was done without N2O.
