    04 STi vs The Neighborhood.... ??

    I just recently bought my STi and I haven't yet had a chance to run it against anyone. I know it'll hold it's own against alot out there, but there are a few around here I'm not so sure about....

    I've got: Deadbolt vf39, drop in filter, up pipe, down pipe, Turbo XS catless, and a reflash puttin down around 287 at the wheels (so im told), along with a slew of suspension work.

    Had an early 90's Mustang 5.0 roll up next to me last night and proceed to burn out for a sec and roll on in front of me and flash his brakes. As much as I could tell he was running exhaust and who knows what else... Outcome?

    Had an 04 ish Mustang Cobra teasin me on the highway yesterday and after he passed saw a Pontiac GTO roll by with him. I know these guys are puttin down some serious numbers, but how bad would I get spanked?

    The last thing I want is to go up against some guy thinkin I've got him and then get killed. Tell me the cars to stay away from, and I'll be all set

    why are you afraid to race and find out? You win, you win, You lose, you lose. Race them and you will be surprised. I ran against a bike on the highway to mess around and he only got me by 1-2 cars. We stopped at 135 mph and he gave me the thumbs up.

    dude it's hard to tell with mustangs... some only have exhaust and are no threat, while others will gobble up a quarter mile in like 8 seconds... in reverse.

    True... buddy of mine had a 'stang GT that would damn near break your neck from the acceleration whiplash if you weren't paying attention . Looked stock from the outside except for the exhaust... but could easily run low 10s.

    He ended up having all kinds of mechanical problems with it and traded it in for a BMW .

    Well an 03/04 Cobra will murder you from a roll, unless the dude sucks at driving. The GTO will also if it is the 6.0 L, if it is the 5.7L and unmodded you would most likely take him. Like said before, the 5.0 could be anything from a 15 sec rat to a 10 sec monster. Next time just go for it and either win and be proud or take your beating like a man and add more mods to avoid it next time.

    Or race from a dig. with your mods you would take out a stock 04 Cobra or stock GTO. just not from a roll.
