    given that the wrx is a 5 speed the gears are a bit taller but 80mph=Bull****

    WELL ALL I HAVE IS THAT BLACK FIBERGLASS HOOD AND THE TURBO BACK. THAT IS TRUE YOU WILL NOT SEE THIS SPEED IN SECOND GEAR WITH THE STI BECAUSE OF THE SIX SPEED, THATS WHY THERES A LOT OF PEOPLE WHO SAY (IM NOT ONE OF THEM) THAT SAY THE WRX IS BETTER FOR DRAG LESS SHIFTING MEANS FASTER DRAG TIMES. ITS A LOGICAL THEORY THOUGH. HEY DOES ANYONE KNOW WHERE THE THERMOSTAT IS LOCATED ON THE WRX I JUST BOUGHT THE 160 THERMO. THANX

    yeah............. I'll take the 300hp STi over the wrx in a drag race anyday.
    Do you mean that a modded wrx has more exceleration potential (given it has the same hp as an STi) because of the gear ratios?
    Interesting.......

    its a good idea to get some engine management or a tune, you would net 50hp 60tq with a good tune

    not really, the STI tranny is going to be just as fast to any given speed.

    the potential for the STI is real power the WRX tranny can not handle any real power it breaks way too easily

    anybody who knows anything about WRXs knows the Tranny is the weakest part of the drivetrain.
