    ...LT1's were rated at 275hp (285 for the 96-97 model year). and subsequently put down around 240-250 at the wheels in stock form, on a car that weighs roughly 3400lbs without the driver. i think an STI should have no problem holding off an LT1 powered vehicle. LS1's...thats a "slightly" different story...

    if your "check engine" light isn't on, you're not driving hard enough!

    Old thread... but as for LT1s there are a lot of big claims of high 13's-low 14s. A lot of stockish or bolt on ones are complete dogs. I know my STi would pull on my friends bolt on LT1 from a roll all the way up until top of sixth.

    The LS1 is of course a different story. I have seen a few dogs(high mileage, poor condition, 2.73 auto, flowmasters etc..) that are not up to par with mild built or stockish STis from a roll and of course not a dig. But a regular wrx... eh IDK. Huge horsepower deficiency there and I dont know if stage 2 could make up for that.

    I know I've played around with subies from a roll in my Trans Am where they probably thought I was wot, that probably posted their stories here at one time. But I generally think it would take a substantial amount of motor work and a swapped turbo for a wrx to take on stock and bolt on ls1s in fair condition with a competent driver. Always worth a try though!
