    Stage 2 Bugeye vs Evo IX

    Simple question looking for a simple answer. What are my chances in my 03 stage 2 protuned wrx against a completely stock evo 9?

    WRX should win with equal drivers.

    Good to know.....now i just need the tracks to open up and weather to get better so i can shut up these damn high school kids. Or atleast make them realize their cars aren't "Way faster than your stupid wrx, its not even an STI"

    When they add a boost controller, it's all over.

    I was gonna say. Are they stock, or have they spent $40 on it?

    Those IX's take redonkulously well to light mods, IIRC.

    Well i know he will mod it so im gonna race while he's still stock . He had a cobra that he claimed was 400+ hp but i destroyed that before i was even stage 2, then his parents bought him an evo. His dad has a twin turbo viper thats really sick though.

    I think u gonna need more than 200whp to win. You should have ur car tuned more aggressively. 200hp is kinda weak for a stage 2.

    I was tuned by one of the most renowned subaru tuners around. I trust his tune. The numbers are slightly weaker than some but im happy with my tune. Honestly i really dont care if his evo can beat my car. I still love the subby way more and would not take an evo over it. I know i could go with a 16g or 18g but considering im a college student who has to have this car to get me to and from school and work i dont really have the funds or time for that swap. As soon as this car is paid off and im graduated i'll be getting a newer sti and going up from there

    Yep they do, < a few hundred and they'll cut 11's on pump with no problem.

    Evos are pretty stout, their big 16, even on those with a smaller exhaust housing is going to give a good run for the money to any 18g powered subaru.

    ^^ very much true. a close friend switched from his '07 STi to his new evo very quickly and he claimed that making power with a subby is like chasing a dream, compared to the evo.

    ^^ he said this as well. lol. he's had a few problems, he also had the first gen. evo and it had recalls every two weeks, until it was pretty much a brand new car again. lmao.

    don't forget to take into account the HP tables based on RWD, FWD, and of course AWD. because we of course, do it on all fours.

    Not many places in CO where a stage II is going to put down sea level numbers.

    I was going to point this out.

    Cant expect 220-240 with little air.
