I have had my 03 wrx for a few months now. With the exception of having an RS Subie I have mostly had Honda's. This wrx has a turbo back exhaust which was on it when the car was purchased and it is nothing special, 3 inch down pipe 2.5 mid(crappy muffler shop special) and an STI axle back. Other than that it is stock. So anyway I was driving home the other night and this guy in a new model Mustang GT with exhaust just kept riding right next to me trying to instigate a race but seeing as how it was a main street I used my maturity to brush off the urge. Before getting to my house he turned on a side 2 lane road and I decided to go out of my way to see how fast this giant engine was. We raced from about 15 mph until about 90 and to my surprise I was slowly but surely getting the edge until I had pulled a fender length ahead. Super happy since everyone has been playing them off like they aren't the same old crappy V8 with a 3500 pound body and no LSD as they have always been. Technology baby!
