    I originally started this thread to ask opinions and tell what happened. I wasn't looking to bash anyone. I didn't say I was the best driver or my car is the fastest. When this event happened my car was bone stock. Everyone is responding by calling everyone liars and that sort of thing. I don't have anything against the srt-4. I actually looked into purchasing one before I got my rex.

    how do you dyno what something has to the flywheel? do you pull the engine? I have never heard of this--
    I think what you might mean is that a stock STi dynoed 240whp---I dont think a stock wrx (even an 06) would be hitting STi territory like that.

    stock for stock the SRT wins, add $3500 your up over 330whp, If I put the money into my SRT that i've put into my STI I'd be looking at a 9 sec car Alot of people see a NEON when they look at the SRT but I wouldn't give mine up!!!

    Basically a stage one is only for the 03 year, it upgrades the car to 04 specs:230hp-250trq

    stage 2 w/o toys: 260hp, 280trq $859.99

    stage 2 w/ toys: 265hp, 280trq $1389.99

    stage 3 w/o toys: 310hp, 325trq $3019.99

    stage 3 w/ toys: 355hp, 365trq $3624.99

    No, I know what I meant. Every magazine that you may read is talking about horses to the flywheel. When anyone says an sti has 300 horses, its to the flywheel. I dont remember exactly how many horses it has to the wheels but I think it's around 265. I'm not trying to sound like a prick, this is only what I read. I'm sure that if you read around someone will tell you that most horsepower ratings are talking about the flywheel unless specified otherwise.

    I test drove a 06' WRX TR model and I was impressed with the added low end torque. It did have a little more grunt than my 02' WRX did stock. But a stock SRT-4 would kill a stock 06' WRX from a roll. A race from a dig would still be drivers race.

    kill it no, have a slight advantage yes. a 1-3mph differnce in trap speed is more a drivers race and conditions of the race then anything else. as much as i luv my srt4 the new wrx has stepped it up. i'd own one tomorrow if i could.

    aside from that, another advantage it the srt has is it has more horsepower and weighs less

    Actually the low end and total torque helps the SRT-4 more.
