I was out tonight wasting gas as usual and I see a familiar Red 350Z getting on it some. Had a nismo exhaust on it (at least the muffler said that on it) and as far as I know that's it. It was an auto, but I'll admit it sounded very very nice. I pull out in front of him, let him catch up to me and rev the ole wagon up a little to show I'm interested. He follows me out and we don't really have much room but he punches it and pulls out to pass me. He gets a little run on me, I go into 2nd at about 40mph, and he pulls about 1 car or so on me and then stops pulling when I start getting into the boost. We let off around 60 and I think I was just starting to catch up to him. We mess around like that off and on a few times and finally turn around and head back.
Empty road ahead, I pull out beside him with both of us going about 15mph and give it a little gas, as does he. I punch it, then hold it at about 1/2 throttle to make sure he's going to go and once he does I floor it again from about 20mph or so. I don't know if I jumped ahead because of traction problem for him or if he wasn't in 1st gear or what but I got about 2 car lenghts by the end of 1st gear. I wind out 2nd, 3rd, and take 4th up to about 100 at which point he's maybe 8 car lenghts back. I take it up to 115 and he fades back even more, not sure if he had gotten off the gas or what.
The WRX has a borla header, sti up-pipe and a stromung 3" turbo back exhaust with 2 high flow cats in it. I also have a cobb tuning accessport and a K&N filter. We both had the passenger mod as well.
