    evo 7 ate my ****!

    So im on the verazano bridge driving home from school going about 70 cruisin in 5thgear and out of nowhere a mexican in a gray evo 7 is roaring catching up to me pretty fast so i drop to 3rd and floor it for about 10 seconds and he dissapears O_o...I thought I was going to have fun but guess not lol so after the toll we end up side by side at a light and hes reving his engine and the light turns and he dumps first and goes meanwhile i take off slowly to save my already f'd up transmission and i end up catching him at the end of my 3rd gear around 7000 rpm and then pass him and get a good block on him midway threw 4th doing about 90..I stopp as soon as i hit 90, way too fast for me on service roads plus I had to turn left but yea I just bought this 02 wrx a month ago and all it has is a k&n typhoon intake, Helix down and up pipe and an HKS carbon TI exhaust.. Would that push out more hp than an 07 evo?????

    We didn't get EVO VIIs in the US.

    And are you tuned?

    Haha, 6's aren't in the US either. It's either a 8, 9, or 10.

    Had to be the slow 8 if you had no problem pulling on him.

    Those mods would still not beat an EVO. You need at least stage 2. Do you have a re-flashed ECU? CHIP?

    A regular lancer? It had to have been an EVO 8. You would have passed a regular lancer by mid 2nd gear.

    You shifted from 5th down to 3rd on the highway and floored it? No wonder you have a jacked up tranny.

    And if you're running 15+ boost and downpipe, etc, you're probably Stage 2, if not at least Stage 1 tuned and you just don't know it maybe... and if you are, you shouldn't need to shift from 5th to 3rd at 70mph damn... most I do is downshift to 4th if I'm already doing 70 on the highway, and I'm only stock tuned right now.

    lol You guys critisize before knowing too much.. I mentioned it in another post, the car had tranny problems going into 3rd from 2nd and it makes winding noises before i traded my truck for it. The car had 3 owners...The original, the guy I traded and myself. The original owner did all of the work and the guy who i traded doesnt know what was done to it so I am completely in the blue. All i know is that the tranny has bearing problems so far from checking out the dif case. Its being torn out and checked at by a master mechanic shop foreman next week. So dropin 5th to 3rd isnt really a concern at the moment if its being rebuilt. It might be stage 2 Im not too sure, turbo pushes out 15 to 18 at times. Then again the retard who first owned it went cheap on guages so I am reading off of a glowshift pod O_o

    not an evo

    it was diff. not an evo i dont think you could have pulled him that easy. but it was prob. a 2003 lancer ralliart, they have a very similar body kit. yet they only bang out 170 HP so that sounds about right for the pull you had.
