Last night both my room mate and I put our two cars to the test.
The stats and mods of the two cars are:
Eclipse- cold air intake (not properly tuned for the intake)
Both- good set of summer tires, nothing special
Overall my Wrx pulled ahead at every speed, though the most trouble was doing a 2nd pull from 30km.
From a full stop I felt like my WRX turbo spooled up quickly and by 3rd gear (90-100km) the wrx would reel in my buddies Eclipse V6.
The question I have for the club is what could my buddy do. I told him a proper tune with the intake would solve his problem, is that correct.
Also after a cold air intake, a turbo back exhaust and a proper tune what is my best option for performance. I will be upgrading the sway bars and possibly the shocks but what can I do for performance that wont stress my engine.
