    LT1 != LS1. Big difference, as regarded by the V8 community. Notoriously underrated from the factory. 300'ish at the rear wheels on most dynos, unless I'm mistaken. Your verbage was that "it wasn't even close."
    If it makes you happy to believe that you're in that league in a stock WRX, then great! I wouldn't make any big bets at the strip, though.

    I wouldn't want to be in the mullet league.

    Now if you want to argue that it gave him more low you might have me on that one.

    Also, Raysfield, he did indicate he had SPT exhaust (probably worth nothing) and cobb, which I assumed to me an accessport which would make him stage one, not stock.

    Thanks That's the best video I think I've ever seen. Stupid crazy and dangerous but wow that's fun.

    Good luck face raping my Porsche. I've driven a lot of high performance cars and even with 400+ whp/wtq good luck. There's a lot to be said for stock designs that can do 3.5 secs 0-60 and 200 mph out of the box. Damn I need the extended warranty to run out so I can chip it so 600+ numbers are what I drive.

    From the description it seems pretty clear that he's either losing boost fluid or venting plasma from his warp core.

    Pff, that's nothing special Scott. My bicycle could put down similar numbers if I had calves like Ray

    Well if it's your goal to burn fluids other than gasoline then I'd say your car is running at 100% Possibly even more!

    considering i don't even own the srt anymore. it's all speculation anyway. but 2900lbs 450hp awd vs 2700lb 560whp fwd sounds like a pretty easily decided out come. awd pulls a few cars from the start then gets pulled in quickly. then for fun put in some race gas make 630+whp for when you get some parts.
    but in the end you may lose to a neon but your still a winner in a 911 x50 lol.
