    02 wrx vs 95 cobra

    I didnt know where to put this but i thought id share

    Me and a buddy finally got to race. Hes got a sn95 cobra, cammed, geared, full exhaust ( bassani ), short shifter, and racing radiator. You can see my mods below.
    First race from 25 - 85, this was really one sided and the cobra stood no chance. Second race from 50-100, i pulled on him for a few seconds and gained about 2 CLs on him by 100. Third from 75-115 or 120ish, race was dead even this time. Both cars are not dynoed so i couldnt tell you what hp each makes. The cobra is gettin ready for a vortech s-trim SC and a custom dyno tune. Im workin on a 16g setup atm just doin the homework first on what exactly i want. Another race will be coming after these upgrades.

    Spend a little more and get youself an td05-18G. The 16G is small. You will totally destroy him the next time around with the 18G. It will be as if he was standing still. But be carefully the 18G can destroy your tranny if you start from a STOP. You must go from a roll only.

    Yea would be a better race. Hes gunna SC the 95 once its done snowing and starts to warm up. It will prolly outrun my car on straights and the quarter but no way on wavys roads. Ill make some vids when it gets warmer.

    you have a great set up for your WRX. But honestly I wouldn't push it with the 18g on a wrx... I'd just get the EvoIII 16g, then you have to get it tuned. You will have to get it tuned on either turbo you get though.

    Ive been torn between the big 16 or the td05 18g.. im sure theres to many threads to read on it. I was going to get the 18 then soon after get some RA gears. Think i could be in the low 12s with the 18g?

    I like the ppg gear route, but now your talking money because i would suggest a 20g then lol. My opinion, evo three stock tranny but 18g if your going STi 6 spd. Its all about the $$$

    I don't think the WRX can handle the 20g without bigger injectors, a fuel pump would be nice if you don't have one yet and a bigger intercooler would be a great add in that. And the STI 6 speed. Oh and get sway bars and a better brake kit (Brembo big brakes?). Cause it would suck to have all that power and have it be hard to come to a stop.

    But If I were you at THAT point... I would just sell the car you own now and keep ALL that money you would need for those parts, and just get an 04 or 05 STI for a good price and start all over. It may be way more worth it in the long run.



    But that's just me.

    Tried sellin it for a while, but i got like 3 grand in this car b3tween exterior, and power mods. Im on a 5-7k budget depending on if i sell my bike. The setup i was gunna go for blouch big 16 or 18g, dw 750cc injectors, turbo xs fmic, turbo xs short ram, and some perrin EL headers. Then getta protune.

    And 18G is pushing it for for a 2.0L WRX. And RA gearset is a waste of money as they aren't noticeably stonger than late '02-'05 gears. RA gears are not rated for the kind power anything more than a VFxx will produce.
