    03 wrx vs 04 STI

    03 mods:
    Sti pink
    255 walbro fuel pump
    perrin fmic w/ perrin shorty
    erz uppipe/downpipe
    greddy SP2 catback

    i dyno around 270whp on 91 cali gas

    04 sti mods:
    manual boost controller
    other parts unknown
    pretty much stock

    We saw each on the street and then his friend ask us if we want to race the sti from the dig. We agreed and went to the a private place and line up. We did a countdown and i got a half a car jump on the sti but then the sti just flew by in second gear and got about a car and half jump on me. I redline on 2nd and 3rd but still lost by a car (it wasnt really a quarter mile but shorter).
    The second time, the same thing happen, i jump a half a car but this time he jump 2 car on me. i didn't redline but my 3rd gear was pretty laggy but when the boost hit, I endup just losing by a car again.
    I'm just wondering the car look stock and wondering how did he put a 2 car lead when i got him from the dig? i heard from the other people that know the sti owner, said he was using nitrous and got way better tires then me (i got ziex all season tires )

    If he was using nitrous... that is not stock at all. Clearly he had something going on you didnt know about.

    planning to get smc alcohol injection and get dan at harman dyno and tune it. about the 50 shot, I'm not sure if my engine and tranny can handle both (alky injection and 50 shot). But I might just carry the 50 shot just incase

    He is not stock, My friend has a stock STi with just a K&N air filter and we raced from a 25mph roll and I pulled from the begining and got 3 1/2 to 4 cars on him by the time we hit 100mph. He also powershifts and I don't. Your setup is very close to mine so he had something done to the car.
