    This thread is pretty much the way this subforum has always been. Not sure what it is that you're looking for; you've got people with a fair amount of knowledge about the VW/Audi world, presenting personal experience, hp graphs, tech input, etc.

    If you have something fantastic to contribute, by all means do so.

    Please close this thread. You are killing the comparison section with this lame thread.

    I personally think we are going to leave this open for a bit.

    Idk if theres any power loss. Idk what this car would've felt like ive only had it a couple months.
    I have a problem where quickly letting off the throttle at high rpm causes one sharp jerk like i tapped the brakes hard. People said that could be caused by a leak. I chalked it up to carelessness.

    Also feel my hp fluctuate sometimes on slow acceleration, idk, comparable to how vtec feels when it kicks in in a honda, except reversed like itd be dropping out of vtec say (know subarus dont have vtec). You follow?

    And pardon the thread jack.
    We're in the same boat you can check out the links on this thread.

    Boost Leak tool?

    I've driven another dealer WRX and I can totally tell the difference (and power). The dealer one felt consistent and pulled way harder, with little turbo lag. Mine feels like it hardly pulls until higher end, and fluctuates like yours.

    I have yet to build a boost leak tester, and I really want to take it to the dealer and have them test it, when I can spare a day without it.

    No offense to your friend or to your (miracle) car, but somehow I suspect that your buddy is lying or racing parked cars...

    My first new car was a 99 VW Passat with a 5 speed and the 1.8 Turbo. It was never modded, but it was a very quick car and that transmission was AWESOME. Super smooth shifting. It was the best transmission I've ever driven. The car also handled really well, though that's not surprising since pretty much any German car does since they're designed to be driven fast. Driven well, that car probably could have done ok against a WRX with an average driver. With a few mods, I'm sure it would have done very well against one. But an STI would kill it.

    anyways we finally decide to go out for a few runs and were both thinking that he's gonna win because of his other encounters but it turns out that i murdered him pretty easily. we even gunned it on an empty road from a rolling start and i hit about 115 and he was a good 20 car lengths behind and he said he was stomping on the gas.

    so i dunno what it was but my nearly stock subie is pretty damn quick i'm stoked.

    does it sound like his car was running at it full potential or is my car just plain faster??
    He is hustling you. Don't race him for money next time.
