    racing from a roll is gay as hell. they dont race from a roll at the dragstrip do they? its just what frontwheel drive cars "made up" to try to make it seem like there car is even with a car that is faster. tell them to shut up. and put there hazards on and " shut down"

    im not an sti guy, definately not into honda's, i give them one thing and only one thing. but i would say at 9 psi he could run a 13 on good tires and knowing how to drive. considering a turbo hatch on 9 psi could do low 12's

    i think edelbrock has a kit that puts 265 hp down to the wheels i believe. Not sure if the kit includes internals, b/c its not extremely high priced. That is enough power to slay a stock sti.

    http://www.edelbrock.com/automotive/...act/index.html

    3 pages of info and last page has turbo options with power ranges from 200-280hp for 1.6-2.5 or 250-320hp for 1.7-2.7

    Anything is possible...

    like 3 years ago in my area there was an EG hatch (Turbo SOHC VTEC) that went 12.6's without nitrous. I'm pretty sure he was using a T3/T4, but either way he owned most anything he lined up with... when he was running slicks.

    The guy in that post isnt using the dinky t28 that comes with the edelbrock kit:
    Garrett T3 .42/.48 - 9psi
    <-- from his sig. My guess is he's pushing more than 175whp, and that starts making a power to weight ratio that surpasses the STi's.

    I am a fan of VTEC though... if I didn't have my WRX I'd have an all motor B-series honda without a doubt.

    The really fast ones are ussually just totally built for boost. High compression NA stock motors and forced induction dont really mix.

    Ok for one thing I used to be a big Honda fan and still am but the reason why I love subarus so much is the simple factor of mass and really good power gains, imagine if u put the same amount of money in a sti or even a wrx u will be killing everyone also.... put a couple thousand in a civic its good put a couple thousand in a STI it would be better

    True, though the STI costs a bit more to begin with. Put enough into a Civic to match MSRP of an STI and it would absolutely kill it. BUT! ...The STI is safer, would do WAY better on a track or autocrossing, better in bad weather, better in pothole laden streets cause of it's chassis, components would last longer on the track, better interior, etc etc.

    my old highly modified 02 (EP) Si would OWN my WRX. I was beat by a greddy turboed 05 (EP) Si that I owned several times in my 02. I didnt have nearly the cash into the Si as I do the WRX (MSRP + Modification wise) Mainly because I worked at Honda and I got a sweet a$$ deal on a K24 but still, you either love honda or you hate them, but you got to respect them. The second you dont the riceist one will own you.

    STI with a good tune on a stock turbo can see 300 - 315 whp on a dynojet. Upgrade the turbo on the stock block around 400 with the right turbo. Upgrade the pistons 500. I think you get my point. It seems like everyone has this point to prove that they can beat a stock sti...Don't here to many people bragging about beating modded sti's.
