well, a coworker of mine ended up getting an 06 stg2 STI FROM A DEALERSHIP. Not saying something is wrong with it, but a modded car from a dealership nahh.
Back to the point.
when he purchased the car they claimed that it has a complete cobb stg2. They claimed that the suby put 300whp/310wtq on a dyno jet. (this is what the salesman said to have been told by the guy that traded it).
Tonight, we got off work and we decided to do couple of highway runs. Since i dont have good tires, and it was wet, i would not even think of running an STI from a dig. By the way my 350z is 2007, with technosquare reflash, APS TD, test pipes and JWT (clutch/flywheel, and pop chargers) i dynoed 290whp/265 wtq
Thus, here is what happened.
We did a 60mph roll, and i pulled him by a CL by 130. He said that he miss shifted.
Second roll, we started form 50mph, and he did better. By 120 I had him by a fender.
Third roll, 30 mph (since it was 11 pm, there were not cars, so we could safely slow down to that speed) 30 mph is kinda crappy speed for the Z because of the gearing. However, by 100 mph my front bumper was by his front tires. I let go after that cause my radar went off.
here is my question. I expected a stg 2 to have killed me, but i ran better than him. My buddy is an experienced driver. He drag races his father's chevelle (10 seconds car) He had a 2004 VW R32, which he had t-boned recently. So, by the way i am describing the STI running against a 350Z (on the highway ) does it seem legitimate stg2 ? like i said i thought that it should have been faster.
