Reading this whole thread gave me a good chuckle. Reminds me of the old Supra discussions so long ago regarding comparisons to domestics. Blah, blah, blah less cylinders, blah, blah, blah, forced induction. Today we have 1500whp 3.0 6 cylinder Supras. I can't wait for the aftermarket to catch up to the STI like it currently is with the EVO. We will have some monster STIs out there. It's already happening and is very exciting.
Well we've seen Supras, WRX's and STIs eat forced induction muscle numerous times. A car made for turbocharging has an advantage over a car that necessarily wasn't. Look at the current Mustang Cobra which has incredible potential because of its blower/engine combo. Hell I have an article from Hot Rod magazine where the STI BEAT the Cobra in the 1/4(Mainly becuase of traction issues) I would never go on Mustang/Camaro/Vette forums and talk that trash. I have BIG respect for American muscle and know the potential they posess. You're entiteld to your opinion, just don't try and pass it off as fact--We know better.
