    wrx KILL of the night

    okay fellas, ive posted before who would be faster a v6 6 speed accord 05 coupe vs a 2006 wrx. and well i have the results.


    im crusing toward the highway, at about 12 am, and i see the HIDS' in my rearview, so i slow down pull to the other lane and well its an s2k with a wrx right behind it, we were both goin eh about 40 at the time, and to me it looked like he wanted to race the wrx, so he downshifts, and guns it to cut me off, and as do i, we stay about even till 85, and as soon as i put it in fourth, i start passing him easily, and we get to about 120, and i was about 1.5 cars ahead. and then we both slow down to a stop light.

    at the stop light, the guy couldnt believe it, and he asks me what i have done to my car, and well...its 100% stock at 3500 lbs, and he was shocked, and light turns green and he guns it and rockets ahead, and i find myself goin about 20 next to a 06, 07 look wrx. he looks and downshifts and smiles, and as do i, we both in first gear, both step on it, he gets a lil jump, i was about .5 car ahead by the time we reached 60, by the time we reached 80 i was about 1.5 cars ahead, and by the time we reached 100 i was about 2 cars...

    so i just thought i would update you guys and ive seen a lot of people saying they but buss lenghts on v6 accord, which i highly doubt, (unless it was auto) which is completely dif story.

    so i thought id share my kills with u guys, leave comments or call bs if u want.

    I'm confused - what are you driving?

    The new v6 accord makes 268hp/248tq. With 2wd and a close ratio six speed I would imagine they do well from a roll. The main problem the older honda engines had, in my opinion, was the significant lack of torque. The newer engines seem to have rectified this somewhat.

    A 14.3 @ 96mph isn't bad.... meh

    I'm far from stock, though not really pushing the limits on the ej205, and on a slipping clutch with a bogged/failed launch I drove it down the track and ran 14@103. Next time I go to the track I should be somewhere in the 13's I think.

    Downshifted to first? Don't blow your engine, and I have to be going less than 10 for the car to even let me think about first with out rev matching like crazy.

    Nice kill, but did you check the welds on your intake manifold to make sure they held up after sustained high throttle/high load (HTHL)? There's a TSB about this.

    No Accord, Micah. S2K

    Also, for the OP: this is the wrong forum for this stuff. I really smell blood in the water here

    Edit: N/M I guess the op is driving an Accord? and raced an S2K

    Edit: N/M op was driving an S2K? and raced Vin Diesel?

    The problem is, they'll most likely be able to tell the manifold weld damage was due to fast driving. The service department will be furious with your request for warranty work.

    at least the work won't be done fast. Unless It's Paul Walker turning the wrenches.
