    I will definately keep you all posted on the results. With my Cobb my boost kicks in a little faster which helps the low end a bit more than before. It can hit as early as 2500 rpms and usually holds through all the gears. It definately feels strong with the EMS so I figure that will help my top end out. I dont know if being an auto has anything to do with it holding the boost well as I dont have any experience with a 5 spd. WRX but I figure with an uppipe downpipe combo and stg. 2 I should have a descent chance. I guess there is only one way to find out!

    Well it looks like one of my SpecV buddys wants to race the WRX as well now. He was an 04 with I/H/E/S'AFCII and I'm currently stock ( just bought my rex 15 days ago). He obviously doesn't want to go from a stop, so it's going to be from a 40 roll. I thinking it's going to be fun to see happens.

    Of course.

    I'm currently at 680 miles, so it will be in about 2 weeks plus an oil change before I run him.

    Thanks for caring WRXcelration

    from a 40mph roll to lets just say...... 100mph. I would put my money on the sentra.

    Yup from a roll you're probably going to lose. With I/H/E/SAFC he's probably putting down 160 or so whp, more torque and weighs 500lbs less. Add in the 6 speed for better gear selection when starting from a roll and you've got yourself a formidable contender.
