    To beat him from a dig = cobb stage 2.5 w/ protune and an AWESOME launch.

    To beat him from a roll = something along the lines of an 18G.

    btw how much boost am i running stock?


    Not flamming you, but you need to use the search. All these questions are all very common among WRX owners and all of them have been covered many times over. Use the search feature it will give you all the answers you need.

    Just some info tho, your looking atleast 3k to be in the neighborhood of that SS. Those are tough cars and run strong in stock trim.

    take a look at this thread.. This is a sticky that has a lot of good information.

    You need a Hemi Cuda. That's only about $100K or so these days...

    As far as the stock turbo not being able to do 20# of boost, there are a few people doing it. You have to have bigger injectors and a higher flowing fuel pump plus a good tune, IIRC. The stock turbo flows more than it has been given credit for. But if you're keeping the stock turbo, you'll want to have it ported and polished, have your exhaust manifolds P&Ped, and a few other things. Also, you want the car to be as light as possible, so check out threads on lightening. Lighter pullies, flyweel, and rotating assembly will get your engine revving faster to get into the power band faster. Lighter wheels will offer less rotational resistance.

    You want a good balance of power to weight. It's not all about horsepower. 100# = 1/10th on the strip.

    Our TD04 can run at 22-25 psi if your at 3500 - 4500 rpm, after that you have to get it back down to 16 b4 redline. There are quite a few people that have run crazy high boost with the td04 but only for a short period of time and then falls off quickly to redline.

    Buy an '06 with the 2.5, and you'll be close already! There's a couple guys on here with stock '06s running in the 13s. One guy ran a 13.749!

    At the Gateway International Raceway, I ran 13.1@108 with my old bone stock M6 2000 SS. I'm at the GIR every Tuesday evening and I've yet to see a stock WRX getting into 13s.

    Ah, so you're in the STL too huh? Where at?

    I've never seen a stock '06 run in the 13s at Gateway either, but here's one of the guys I was referring to. Check out the link.

    Since when does a 13.7 @ 98mph make you "close already" to a 12.9 @ 109mph?
