    Really depends on what you are looking for, but everyone likes a good Stage 2 upgrade. Throw a turboback exhaust and a tune on that STi and neither of those cars are going to be able to touch you.

    Opps, I mis-typed. Meant to say it SHOULDN'T be a problem (not "should be"). In 2007 they up'd the G35 HP to 300 ... would be a closer race, but think that the STI would still definitely out perform it.

    Sounds good to me lol. Its just going to take some more time to save up the $$ for it but to me its worth it in the end. I'd really like to put rims on it right away but its not a complete necessity just yet. I just really want it to have a real nice sound so I would probably be going for an exhaust set up first an possibly a BOV also. Im not 100% sure but the first step would be to get the STi lol

    Well, I'll just chime in with some real world experience.

    I have a '12 WRX hatch.

    When I was still STOCK, I did get up next to a G35 with exhaust and tune (in mexico).

    From a 30 roll, as he refused to go from a stop, I pulled half a car on him to 95...again, this was a stock WRX...in mexico.

    I think a stock '05 STi would have no problem with either cars mentioned in the OP (assuming they were stock also).
