so with ur suspension mods can outhandle a stock evo at .97g on the skidpad? dream onOriginally posted by boosted 4
Why? As far as straight-line accelleration they've both got 2.0L motors and 4 valves per cyl. One is inline vs the other an H4. The EVO's motor may be a little stronger with a forged internal part or two but there are also WRX's right now putting down 400"W"HP on stock internals.
Where suspension and brakes are concerned, the EVO does come with a stiffer stock set up than the WRX. However, I've only put on lowering springs - 1.5" (front) 1.3" (rear) and set my camber to -1.75 (front) and -1.00 (rear) with 225 45 17's and my car handles surprisingly well. The stock brakes on the WRX aren't all that bad either if anybody cares to dig up some data.
Now the let's talk about AWD on the EVO vs WRX. They are set up the same way. Both have an open front/Viscous center/ and LSD rear.
Is there any thing that I'm missing and the WRX costs less.
and evo's through the years have dynoed over 500whp stock internals. come on the evo is better than the wrx just accept that, that is not taking anything away from the wrx which i think is a great car.
