    Stage 2 2013 wrx vs stage 2 2005 sti

    So I raced a 2005 sti stage 2. He had headers, full exhaust and so on. I beat 1/4 mile and we raced from a roll dead even. Then he upragded to a 2013 sti turbo. He was somehow pull on me. How is that? I thought 2013 wrx's turbo is not that smaller than the STI's?

    Did he get retuned with the new turbo or did he just slap it on?

    I have a stage 2 09 wrx and I am faster than a recently submerged stage 2 05 sti and another stage 2+ (maybe) 05 sti. Guess I have a legit tuner

    Both drivers gave me the sehks, so it was all good.

    Maybe his turbo was just that worn down?

    I would hope he would get a retune.

    But what if I have the same mods as he does. I'll list all of his mods. Where does the wrx stand? I mean. I did beat him twice in a 1/4 mile before the turbo upgrade. We were dead even on top end. I definitely don't want to buy an sti and start over again. But my point is or question do these new wrx's has potential to be a track car?
