Not many companies out there actually produce power for honda owners, especially with the K20 series motors so you have to be careful when purchasing stuff for them.. Anyway, that Si isnt going to run anybetter than a 14 with any of those mods so the WRX will own.

Best street turbo for the EJ20. Blouch TD05-18G 8cm^2 ported, polished and thermal coated by Crucial Racing. I pulled on more than one C6 vette with that turbothats why i want the 18g 8cm housing turbo!!!
so my friend didn't wanna race the guy with the TeH SI so I did.
We went from 2nd gear at 45mph . We were dead even till we hit 100mph after that he started pulling hard on me.
we tried 3 times and every time was the same thing. btw my car it's bone stock.
Now he wants to race some dude with a 08 WRX. What do you guys think about it?

The new SI's have about ~185whp... decent.... NO TORQUE.
2.5 stg 2 ..... the SI doesn't stand a chance.... 1st hand
Maintenance schedule and poke in the eyes:
My buddy has the exact same mods except for the intake which is fujita I believe. We've raced a few times and both from a dig and from a roll I've won. I don't condone street racing at all, but I can attest to the fact that the K20 is a very powerful motor and its top end is very impressive.
