    2008 sti vs. 2002 wrx

    wouldn't u assume that the 08 would be faster?...well i happened to drive by one the other day..i admired it as i was passing it..he pulls up next to me again like he wants to run..as we do the whole look at each others car thing we get a red light....green shines...we both go for it...it was farely neck and neck buy my 02 wrx kept in front

    he said he only had it for a month so i wouldn't doubt it was stock..mine is pretty stock as well ( AEM intake, bov, some gay muffler a guy put on before i bought it) <<that stuff wouldn't make that big of a difference would it?

    fyi the roads were a lil wet..if that helps any

    If other one was an sti, that driver sucked major monkey balls at driving. The sti should have beat you no problem.

    says no to street racing.

    plus your intake and bov do nothing but hurt your car, especially since you are untuned.

    how weird. a 06/07 wrx would already lay the smack down on a 2.0l wrx.

    2008 STI could be slower if the SI drive is in Intelligent mode.
