    not to be a spoiler or anything, but frumaroll is truly getting out of hand if we are now talking about STARTING at 75 mph. Whats next....frumaroll around 125, my car can take yours till 130.

    I guess I'm just old school... Once a rolling start, short duration, strait line race is amalgamated and endorsed professionally, I'll join the crowd. Until then, it's from a stop/a dig/a holeshot. I still laugh everytime I hear that new Toyota truck commercial endorsing it's product for it 50-70 mph or some such nonsense speed. Why don't they just say frumaroll and be done with it?

    I am sure you will be fine frumaroll. I was playing around with a new Siwith an exhuast(not sure if headers too but at least a CB) in my stock 06 on the highway, and while we never raced per-se sp?, he could not catch up.

    I would not underestimate the Type S RSX or the new SI's...the K20 has a lot of potential, it responds very well to mods..With bolt ons it might suprise you...it will put up much more of a fight from a roll but might suprise your from a dig...A I/H/E/K-pro on the K20s will put them in the 13.7ish 13.8ish range...thats not to bad for a 2.0L FWD

    if by bolt ons you mean a turbo kit, or headers, then ya but intake+exaust combo kets the k20 nothing if not robs power.

    on the next topic, i'm the op for this thread, and i was refering to my roomates si. well he decided to flip it a few times, and i didnt buy an 06 tr, so the title should be changed to 07 wrx vs pile of aluminium and plastic. oh btw he walked away. it held up VERY well. i was suprised.

    well, i destroyed him at lower speeds, and he was bragging about his top end, not to mention the speed limit around here is 70. 75 was a good speed for both of us. it put me in the middle of my boost, and it put him in vtec.

    You can over drive anything from a ford escort to a porsche gt3.

    I have to say that is pretty impressive that it can keep up at the higher ends though. I wouldn't have bet on it, that's for sure.

    On a side note...could you please reduce your sig length to 6 lines or less, including blank lines and quotes...in accordance with our forum rules. Thx in advance!

    Yup I/RH/E is good for 200/210hp at the wheels. Add k-pro for some tunning and you'll squeez out another good chunk.

    the RH is a race header... still a bolt on... even if it was just a intake and an exhuast you can still feel a decent difference
