    2004 STI VS 1999 Camaro SS

    Sup guys, as the title says im taking my buddy down to the track in a couple weeks. 1/4. I know i can get him on the launch, but will he catch me at the end of the track? Also how will this turn out on say a freeway run? My mods are AEM CAI, HKS BOV, HKS Carbon Catback Exhaust, Front&Rear strut bars, and lowering springs and shocks. Any experience?

    Depends on his mods. I'm stage 2 and could beat my buddies z28 until he got cammed and headers. Now he runs 12.7's and I'm still 13.0's.

    If he is stock you should be able to beat him or edge him out.

    If he is modded, you will probably lose.

    F-bodies are strange though. Decently driven they are only high-13sec cars but well driven they can be high 12's or low 13's.

    With your mods you need some engine management to help. They really don't do anything until you've got something that's controlling them.

    If you get a Cobb AccessPort, with your mods you can do the stage 1 map. That will potentially decrease your 1/4 by a tenth or 2 and increase your trap speed by 1 mph or so. However, if using the AP, it would be highly recommended to remove the CAI and go back to the stocker since most CAIs on Subarus need custom tuning.

    If you get a DP, then you'll be able to load the stage 2 map. Again, decreasing your 1/4 by a few tenths and increasing your trap speed by 1-2mph.

    You'll smoke him out of the hole, but he'll catch you just over half way..drivers being equal. On a freeway run, you won't be able to hang at over 60.

    well my buddys SS is stock. And he just got it a week ago so he isnt that great of a driver, and its his first manual car ever. So from a stop by what gear do you guys think he will be able to pass me up?

    I'm surprised nobody has asked to have the BOV removed too and the stock one put back.

    Anyway, like everyone said, get some EM to go along with the exhaust work and reflash that ECU. That should help you out a bit.

    I didn't say anything about the BOV cuz I assumed it was common knowledge. +1 on the EM & DP though.
