    Found out the diff. today between a new WRX vs. an Ej20!!

    I was on the highway today and I ran into a bugeye WRX w/ SPT exhaust, some sort of intake and some sort of BOV. But NO Cobb ap or anything like that, so i'm sure that played a huge part on the outcome of the race. Anyways, we went from about 65 to 100-105. I put AT LEAST a buslength and a half on this guy, I mean it was embarrassing (for him anyway I'm sure).

    Bottom line, I can't wait for next week when I go stg. 1 (or stg.2, haven't decided yet.) I'm bone stock right now and I really pulled on him HARD!! I told him after the race to look into a Cobb AP (yes, at highway speeds we talked, not the smartest thing, but there wasn't anyone around.)

    I gave him a thumbs up anyways, just because it really was a VERY nice subaru and I love wrx's.

    From what i understand the 06s are better down low but up top they are virtually the same as the 2.0s, but i haven't raced one so i wouldn't know. Maybe it sas an auto?

    it's comments like these that really irritate me. Do you really think that I'm that stupid to not be able to tell if he was actually full throttle?? Please dude... like I said, the car was freakin' loud, I could tell when/if he was "racing". Plus, we were playing around a little bit before we raced, I know that he knew it was on. I wasn't ridiculing the 2.0s or anything. I clearly stated I gave him his props even though I won, and he was cool about it, so why can't you be??

    And as far as the 2.5s being the same up top as the 2.0s... I'm not gonna argue, but I will say I was pulling on him hard nonstop right past triple digits. He did have a passenger though.

    EDIT: Oh, and it was definitely a 5MT, no doubt about it.

    I know you are stupid for street racing. Just because a car is loud doesn't mean it has performance parts added. I never however said anything about the 2.0 being great than the 2.5. It is obvious that the 2.5 is faster than previous models.

    I'll never post a new thread in this forum again. People freak and you'd think they never broke the speed limit the way they talk.

    +1 i agree with PJ 100% the kid wasnt sayin he was flying in and out of traffic on the shoulder and ****. He was just explaining that the 2.0 arnt quite as fast the 2.5 and he thought that he would share a kill. Hes not sayin that subarus are sh!t hes not sayin that hes going to own teh world. What makes him stupid. Yea street racing isnt the smartest thing in the world. But i jsut read a thread by DTR against a mitsu and a lot fo people said oh nice kill. If you cant keep yourself from being a d!ck then dont post.
    Tomorrow isn't a guarantee.

    2) had to find out that the wrx with more hp and tq is faster through street racing
    3) this thread
