    well i would sure hope that a stock WRX driver could pull one in a race (stop of course).

    97 VR's are pathetically slow with or without N/A mods, but come FI things can get interesting.

    a stock wrx has potential to be *perfectly* driven into high 13's

    a modded i/e/c bla bla 97 vr? mid 14's if he can drive.

    the newer ones respond better to mods, so hopefully this kid races him and sees how things work out

    The 97 VR6 was only 170hp, the newer ones are 200, so they will do alot better, especially from a roll. With 200hp at the crank they likely put down around 170-175 at the wheels stock, and weighing about the same as a WRX, with the extra 10-20whp that intake/headers/ecu might give them they could deffinatly run with or beat a stock WRX from a roll. You're right though, the older ones are pathetically slow even modded, if its not 2001+ dont even worry about it keeping up with any wrx unless its been turbocharged...

    A newer VR6 w/ 6spd manual and bolt ons (intake, exhaust, chip) will give a stock wrx a REALLY good run for it money uptop if not beat it. A stock wrx is nothing special at all, and 1.8T or VR6 can play with one with minimal mods.
