    It's pretty amazing that just adding the 20G and the MIVec makes the Evo IX, able to run 400 awhp on the stock turbo. Variable Valve Timing really helps, it's the only reason Hondas don't need much boost at all to put down some decient hp numbers.

    every time i see one of these videos i ask myself the same question.... would i be happier had i bought an evo instead of my wrx??
    sure i can beat stock evos in a straight line race with my vf34, but if we were to go to a track, id get my ass handed to me no matter what.

    <<<serious evo envy over here
    I want my subie back.

    It's not really the valve timing as much as it is the compression ration that allows the hondas to produce high numbers with low boost. You see a lot of cars that are NA from the factory and they have high compression ratios so it only takes like five - eight pounds of boost for it to make good power. The horsepower from a turbo car has less to do with valve timing than with the compression ratios.

    I call fat camera guy.

    But Maybe the STI dyno curve was peaky while the EVO's was nearly flat. You never know until you get all the facts! I could list other things but I am sure you can already notice my denial.

    It doesn't get any gayer than running two high-powered AWD beast from a roll everytime. I want my almost 3 minutes of my life back.
    My car looks just like this without the skirts and roof wing! Yeah baby!

    Sliq dude, what mods are you running? I am still stock and am probably going to pull the trigger on the warrtalon/buschur package ($1300) to get to "330 awhp" but that is still not going to put me in the 11s like you. Obviously driver has something to do with it, but what mods are you running is what I have got to know dude.

    Blah, I wouldn't spend the money on that. Look at Dan/Fimotorsports on EVOM and what he's done to his DD IX to make it move. It may be the fastest stock turbo IX out there with the following:
    3" downpipe
    Ebay 02 housing
    Helix test pipe
    GSC 272 exhaust cam
    Forge MBC
    AMS LICP
    AMS 100 octane tune
    SS clutchline

    He's running the stock Catback. You could get all that exhaust stuff & a tune for < 1K. Definitely would suggest the SS Clutch line as well,but that's a PITA install if you have larger hands.

    After seeing him pull this off on the stock CB I'm more than likely going to be reverting to mine.
