Are you trying to compare the performance capabilities and of a vette and a wrxOriginally Posted by boostinmywrx
A wrx has trouble getting into 12's on the stock tranny... and Forget about getting a wrx into 11's without rebuilding your motor or dropping in a built ej25. Hell, not even STi's will get into 11's on the stock motor, and a lot have trouble getting low 12's since any turbo you could swap in will make more than 350whp which means your bottom end will not last much longer.
On a vette however, N/A mods will earn you 11's easy! And that is without boost. My cousins bolt on's, cam, tuned, C5 w/ LS6 motor plows into the 11's with ease with trap speeds that some of the fastest wrx's known that are "track only" have barely get. And he is N/A. I dont think I need to even bring up what boosted vette's are doing.
As for you "getting the power down" statement. As Magikman already pointed out, with the right tires the vettes will cut 60' times rather similar to that of a wrx because of the gearing and incredible torque... Go the track and you will see bolt on vette's with street tires cutting 1.9/2.0. A lot of the more powerful ones with seasoned drivers will cut 1.8's
You just simply cannot compare the performance of the two vehicles. The wrx was BUILT to do more than make big power and drag... In fact its not a very good car to do that with at all.
