    Legacy vs Volkswagen R32

    I'm bored so i'll share kill story. I was out driving around Boulder the other night trying to fix my fuel settings since the car was bogging down under boost. Finally managed to get a good enough setting to run about 14 lbs of boost and ran into a nice R32 and kinda played with it for a moment before coming up to a red light. At the light the guy told me he wasn't ready "back there" so we decided to run from the light. No launch off the light as I'm still getting used to the turbo, didn't look like he got a launch either as he was by my door and starting to pull ahead until i hit about 4500 rpms and the car raised up in the front, the external wastegate opened and gained about half a car length on him between 4500-6000 rpms. Then shifted to second and could start to see him in the rearview and shut down. We attempted to talk for a moment but it was too noisy for either of us to really hear. Cool guy, and i like the car.
