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).
