    ^stage 2 can beat the mustang on the street, but the strip it will be close.

    What do you mean by "exhaust"? Did he have different mufflers? Or was it a full O/R setup? Any other mods?

    I think you caught a bad driver. I was stage 2 at the same time my 05 GT was stock. SOTP from driving both of them is that it is a driver's race.

    Nice job

    i ran a 13.6 in my stage II which seems to be about average, haven't seen any stock stangs run 13.6s besides cobras obviously, and on the street the mustang is alot less likely to be as quick as it is on a track where as the wrx is probably nearly identical.

    I'm just saying... I own BOTH cars in that identicle trim and they both felt right about the same. A driver's race.

    You can quote magazine numbers all day, it doesn't prove a thing.

    The problem with these types of comparisions is that people say "mustangs run this, and car and driver got that"... Yes, the stangs run mid 13's on a prep'd track with their tires warmed up... On the street it is different if you are going from a dig of very low-speed roll. On the track a GT and stage2 wrx would be a good run, on the street, the strang losses something, whereas the wrx does not.

    At lower speeds or a dig my (friend of a friends) GT stang cannot keep up with my stage2 + protune rex. The topend however is a different story.

    Either way, I think a stock GT and a stage2 rex would be a good race either way you put it... aside from a highspeed frumarole.

    Of course, depending on setup.

    I am not quoting magazine numbers, i am telling you what I RAN and what other stock GTs have run at the same track i ran at, i NEVER SAW A STOCK GT RUN 13.6s without slicks period. You can tell me all you want that you saw stock GTs run 13.6s but not at the track i run at. And the best stage II i have seen in the 2.0 wrx's was a 13.3, i highly doubt any stock GT has ever run a 13.3, i think the wrx is faster on average in the 1/4, average stock GT will run upper 13s average stock wrx will run mid 13s, a great driven stock GT will run mid 13s a great driven stage II will run low 13s. These aren't magazine numbers these are what the cars run at the track period. And it is impossible to feel a couple tenths of a second when driving a car on the street, take your cars to the track and then tell us what is faster, your butt dyno is less accurate then magazine racing.

    Wow... you realy took that personally...

    I can't take my stock cars to the track... the WRX is stage 2, and the Mustang is 440 RWHP of supercharged goodness... and I don't think anyone here would consider that a fair fight....
