This is a discussion on 2004 STi vs 2006 M3 within the Comparison: WRX vs World forums, part of the Community - Meet other Enthusiasts category; Originally Posted by Wrinklechops +1. E46's have what, 343hp from the factory stock? 333hp As for 300 whp, most stock ...
I get told on the forums that my stories are not true... but there's no point of me making up these stories.
I've beaten lightly modded C5 LS1 Corvettes, M3's, SRT4's, GT mustangs, lightly modded 5.7L GTO, 6.0 GTO, etc... I've also lost to some of these cars as well.
Anything can happen. Oh and just for reference my car is pretty well modded with the right parts and tuning included. My race gas map on my STi makes 330whp and 400wtrq on a dynojet.
How's it going man?
Oh, and for further proof I'm not lieing I have a video here of me racing a 380whp 6.0L GTO 6speed on the highway from a 60mph roll in Mexico. I was neck a neck with him right up to 125mph.

If you fast forward to 2:15sec you can see the run
I'm not surprised you beat up on SRT-4s or Mustang GTs (joke of a car. Try a Cobra, Mach 1, or a Saleen) if you really have 330whp and 400wtq. Little harder to believe the GTOs, Corvettes, and M3s though... (and I assume those are all E36 and E46 M3s? Ever try on the E92?)I've beaten lightly modded C5 LS1 Corvettes, M3's, SRT4's, GT mustangs, lightly modded 5.7L GTO, 6.0 GTO, etc... I've also lost to some of these cars as well.Car to post a dyno sheet? Also, are you tuned on E85? Or just 105+ octane? If so, bet that's expensive! Are you running meth or nitrous or anything?Anything can happen. Oh and just for reference my car is pretty well modded with the right parts and tuning included. My race gas map on my STi makes 330whp and 400wtrq on a dynojet.
Can you tell us all your mods? Within reason... like your power mods. I don't care to know what scent your air freshener is.

I run race gas when I want to play and no it's not expensive as long as you do buy race gas every week. lol.
I run a pump gas tune daily and I was tuned for a 109 octane tune as well.
I just don't see how you're getting 400wtq and 330whp from "breather mods" and a larger TMIC, race gas or not, on a stock VF39. Like I said, would you mind posting a dyno sheet? Or at least listing your mods very specifically? Most everyone on here will know right away the estimated power levels if you do that.
Also, who was your tuner? If he is one of the best, I'm sure we all know his name. Surely he's well known, so you don't have to protect his anonymity.
Getting my popcorn for this thread....

And in all seriousness I don't feel like I need to prove myself to either you or anyone on here. If you don't believe me then it's okay suit yourself.
I'm not here to brag or show off... I'm just here to state what kind of encounters I've had with other cars.

And the video is not proof.
At least just list your mods. Why is that so hard?
EDIT: Also, I'm not familiar with your tuner. You named the company, but not the specific tuner. That's important. Granted, I may not be as up-to-date as some on the who-is-who of the tuner community, but like I said the company name rings no bells, and you did not provide an actual tuner's name.

And you have 330whp and 400wtq?As far as my mods go I have: intake, downpipe, full exhaust, fuel pump, port and polished Grimmspeed headers, Upgraded TMIC, 2 step colder plugs, etc, etc.....
I used to have a friend who put the VF39 on his 06 WRX. He didn't even make 300whp. I think he made 290-something on a really high reading dyno. You would need a bigger/better turbo than the VF39 to be getting 330whp, even on a high reading dyno. My friend also only had 340-something wtq. Again, there is no way you made nearly 60 more wtq than him on the VF39.
You see, all I am getting at is that if you cannot even convince us of your power numbers, how are we supposed to believe your wild car-beating stories?

I don't think the numbers are too far off. Just a quick search turned up a similar setup with similar numbers:
2007 STI - 322.14whp/373.89wtq - IWSTI.com: Subaru WRX STI Forums
What am I missing?
