I'm curious as to what exactly these "stages"? Sorry for sounding like a total noob, but I am accustomed to hearing specifics. Maybe I just need to read more
What is really hard for me to find is the flow output the Subaru engines produce. That is the main thing. I am really interested in how the cylinder head looks like too. I do not want to steal this thread.
Sounds like a good run you had with the EVO. Also sounds like you got a fun ride.
Nice. I do think that the STi's are just a tad bit quicker and stronger than the EVO, although about 50 percent of the road tests suggest otherwise. The fastest roads test comparisons I have seen have the STi a bit quicker.
The only time I met up with an EVO was when my car was faily new and I was on the highway. It was a newer EVO, Im assuming a 2006 and my car is a 2006 STi. I got behind him and he floored it, and when I floored it I was pulling right into him and would have hit him unless I moved into the other lane. When we punched the throttle a second time, I was in the other lane and was slowly creeping away from him...this was from around 80 to 100 mph. I had no doubt that my car was stronger. All good fun though...I got off the gas at around 120 mph. I was satisfied. Although i was def. pulling away noticeably, it wasnt night and day like a few cars or passing him like he was standing still. I was pulling away and would have passed him completely with no chance of him catching me if we had kept going.
Just remember sti's and evo's are different cars. exhaust, intake and boost controller...puts an evo 9 in the high 11's with an exceptional driver. Good job beating him stock though! I'm stage 2 with a hyperflow tmic and a few other small things and just barely edged an evo 9 out in 3rd gear. His only mod was an intake.I highly doubt any kind of engine management,
