    Impressive numbers!

    250whp/280tq stock makes my pants tight. Those are basically STI numbers.
    The only thing I don't like is hot quick the hp drops after 6k rpm's... It redlines at just over 7k right? I am sure an exhaust and bit of tuning will have that holding to redline though.
    Word on the street is that when the new cobb AP comes out for it and exhaust components are more readily available people expect 300whp/330wtq on an exhaust/ecu/tune setup
    I would LOVE to see one of these go into the 12's on the stock turbo/internals and on street tires. I have feeling we will see that.

    im planning an AEM CAI and a TurboXS stealthback early next year.

    After that maybe TurboXS FMIC, boost control/tuning

    enkei racing lightweight wheels

    would love to put coilovers on this thing if they existed other than the expensive mazdaspeeds...

    Basically useless?
    you know nothing.
    My friend has a 2.0 GSR-t in his EM1 civic putting down 400 whp.
    his basically useless car will stomp the **** out of your car.
    he also owns a 03 wrx.

    for the record he has beat
    e46 m3 smg
    07 audi s4 5speed
    05 WRX sti
    Modded Evo 9

    I love it when people think AWD is the godsend of automotive technology.
    If you know how to drive you can rip in FWD
    AWD with 300HP vs FWD with 300HP
    FWD will eat it up on top end cuz their is less drivetrain loss.
    thanks for your $.02 though

    STI on slicks vs Integra on slicks

    I have owned AWD FWD and RWD, If you have something to say just say it.
    but the fact is that AWD doesnt make your car the best in the world, it just makes it easier for noobs to drive fast.
    and better launch in the rain

    I'm with Tom. I have absolutely no use for the above-described car. I'll keep my crappy old WRX, thanks.

    I guess if you're Sammy Streetracer, and really into bragging rights, then it would be a great choice. Yesterday I watched a suped-up Integra nearly lose it hitting the gas after a corner, and come inches from understeering into the car in the other lane. It gave me a sudden appreciation for my godsend of technology.

    Give the ego a rest, sport.

    The integra won by ~.1 and 16mph. He did a lot of catching up. And that parachute is just hilarious. Good job posting a useless video. Take the same cars and go off road. That would be a good vid!
