    What sort of 1/4 mile and 0-100kph time...?

    I'm curious as to what the 1/4 mile and 0-100kph time would be for my car, details are as follows.

    1997 JDM WRX - 205kw

    Some of the v3/v4 WRX's came with the vf22 so lucky this one did .

    Mods are pretty minor but...

    Cadillac convertor removed and downpipe fitted
    3" Exhaust from cat back
    Running 1.1 bar of boost
    K&N Air filter

    The nearest track is some distance away but hope to get on one in the near future. I've been told the JDM's should do high 12's with similar mods and with a decent driver, perhaps low 13's with an average driver? I know someone has done a 12.7 in a 1997 JDM WRX and I was told it was 'fairly' stock but am not too sure on the modifications. Apparantly they were a really good driver though.

    I'm guessing the 0-100kph time shouldn't be too quick because of the bigger turbo which has more lag but larger top end power?

    Anyone know what the figures should roughly be?

    Cheers

    Well a vf22 can push a USDM WRX into the 12's so I'm guessing a 1997 (lighter car I believe) should hit high 12's. If it's your 1st time as the track I would be more then happen with low to mid 13's.

    Quarter Mile

    Ok, take what everybody say's you "SHOULD" hit, (other vf22, friends on the forums, magazines, etc) and add .5 = Your quarter mile time.

    So like how Error said you should be able to reach high 12's. I'd say you run 13.0-13.5. Now go run it and get back to us. If you come back with 12's, you better have vid! Have fun doing it.
