    my 05 rex < evo9

    edit: lol i put < instead of >

    so tonight on the way home from a late night skate session, i pull up to an evo9 at a red light. from what i could see he at least had and exhaust of some sort. neither of us rev, so we just start off normally. of course he then floors it, and as his rear bumper passes me i put my pedal to the floor and catch up pretty fast before we hit the next red light. this time i want him from a dig so i start reving. as does he. the light turns green and i jump ahead. by the end of 2nd, i was about a 1/2 car in front. i throw it into 3rd and continue to pull pretty hard. at 100 when i let off i had around 2 1/2 cars on him. to my surprise he did'nt do the flyby. he just caught up and slowed down, then gave me the thumbs up, and i gave a friendly wave. then we parted.
    btw, i could hear his turbo over my exhaust(which is LOUD), so i believe he could of had more done to it.

    my engine mods: protuned vf-34, sti pinks, txs fmic, aps short-ram, rsr catless dp and cb


    ps: this was done on a completly empty highway. please do not attemp to recreate

    i put down a measly 242/230 on cobb's mustang dyno
    but that was before he fine tuned it on the streets, so it could be more

    The Evo has a loud hissing turbo charger when stock. They (Evo's) are beasts. Nice run by the way.

    depends what dyno you're on. Mustang dynos read very low, so his sounds about right
