    WRX vs M3

    My buddy owns a 1996 M3 with the following mods: conforti chip, full intake, cat back exhaust, clutch fan delete, traction control delete (before mods 240HP, 238TQ)

    My car is an 03' WRX wagon w/ COBB stg1 93 oct, blitz nur spec cat back, Tein springs and a short throw.

    The first time we ran was before i got my stg 1, we ran from a 2nd gear roll ~ 35 mph to 100 (i try to avoid grenading my clutch). he ended up having about 2 car lengths on me by the time we hit 80 then i let off cuz we were approaching a car so by 100 it prob would have been 2.5-3 car lengths.

    Fast forward to tonight about a month later and i just installed my COBB stg1 about a week ago. same road and conditions as before, and i was dead even with him this time at 100 actually even pulled ahead for a second or two in 3rd gear.

    Super happy with my COBB AP, can't WAIT to get my dp/up and switch to stg2

    wow, those are some impressive results on your part. The E36 M3 traps nearly 100mph stock and runs very low 14's and with those mods its doing even better.

    Good run.

    Yeah but the car is 11 years old now so its probably not running like it would if it was new you know?

    No doubt. With the car being that old and probably beat on it could very well be running low compression in the cylinders and not be nearly at full potential.

    yeah i'm not bragging that his car is wicked fast, granted it's quick, but stage 2 will kill him

    it was more to show the diff between the stock ECU and a COBB stg 1 map
