    stock WRX 5spd = 0-60 MPH in 5.4 seconds.

    I know i have the sedan version and believe me its a fast family hauler.

    But the RS4 is lighter with a 6 speed manual so it will be a little faster then the current RS6.

    Anyway, they are saying 550 hp FSI V10 with 7 speed DSG for the next RS6.

    Here some spy pics of the S6 and RS6

    Someone needs to pull up the car and driver article with the WRX vs 330XI vs S4 so we don't have to argue with the above statement. The S4 in that article was faster around the track then the wrx but identical in the 1/4 mile.
    2005 WRX (Short throw shifter, lightweight pulley,STI Splitters,Tein H-Tech springs,Up/Down Pipe, ERZ Catback, Cobb Stage 2, ASA JH8 with Yokohama ES 100s) 13.680@100.46mph

    Oh....and the guy is an idiot for racing thru traffic like that. F'n 2F2F wannabe. Those are the type of fkrs that should be hauled of to jail and their car taken away.

    What a waste of a good storyteller too.

    I talked with my friend (S4 owner) to clear up a few things. The bi-turbo S4's do not have sequential turbos...the two K03 turbos (not K04's, I guess those are the turbo's on RS4s) just run off of one intake rather than two, and that's why it's bi-turbo.

    Modded S4's on the highway are FAST.
    I can't believe that story that started this thread though...I've have to much to say about the stupidity and danger. And to risk the lives of all the pasengers in the car against their will, I'm not even gonna get started.

    I've gotten several chances to race my friend's S4.----on an empty, straight highway, by myself-----From a stop it wasn't too much of a race, it wasn't really close at all. In his words "I kicked the s*** out of him."
    -From a roll in second he pulls ahead right away with his V6 before my turbo spools up. But as soon as boost comes on I pull past him pretty fast.
    -Rolls from 3rd I still pull away pretty fast
    -4th is tough to say, I don't drive too fast on the road, so I never really have time to let my turbo spool up and catch up

    stock to stock on the highway---S4>WRX
    stock to stock 0-60 prob. WRX>S4

    S4 with chip and exhaust v.s. Stage 4 rex with Sti RA gears
    WRX>S4

    stock for stock they are pretty even depends on driver i guess. but when you start modding the s4 engine has such more more potential. i was looking at the dynos of cars with a few boltons and these are just a few i was impress with
    2000 s4 with GIAC x full exhaust rs4 manifold 247whp 290lbs 93oct
    2000 s4 with APR chip full exhust/intake 257whp 262lbs 91 oct

    these are on stock turbo, i dont know about you guys but thats a lot of power
    for the small amount of money spent.
    turbo ej2
