    My WRX vs. Supercharged Jetta

    This is an older video when I still had stock upipe even, and small diameter STI dealer muffler at the end of my turboback. Car still felt almost as fast as it is now though, I ran an 13.44 with it in the old setup, but my last time at the track(past Sunday) with my new mods(upipe clutch/flywheel) I only ran an 13.5@100mph. I don't think I had my best run in though.. I'll have to go again sometime.

    Cool vid! I've also got a A4 (most recent model) Golf GTI w/a 2.0 that I'm thinking about doing a turbo conversion on. It will be much quicker than the SC'd one you raced but it all comes down to money.

    Anyhow, looked like the Jetta got smoked
    2002 WRBP WRX

    Old setup = BPM GT turboback, PDE up-pipe, Unichip w/custom map, cooler plugs (NGK range 7), Walbro 255LPH FP, MBC (15 PSI), and custom built turbo utilizing the 13G housing (Internals: Hitachi compressor wheel, Mitsu 15G turbine lightly clipped).

    1/4, 12.88 105.10 - 1/8, 8.09 85.96

    New set up = Now w/UTEC and STI Injectors

    1/4, ? - 1/8, ?

    Ajdaman it wasn't on Van Nuys..

    And Shibby, it was the volkwagon. I don't think I've ever chirped or spun my tires in between shifts, only during drag launches sometimes..

    arent u the guy that 'lost' to that srt-4. im curious, it seems ur car is pretty kick ass and fast, 13.5, the neon shouldnt have been that hard to catch up, even if he had the lead from jumping the horn. im confused, do our cars suck THAT much from a roll?????

    damn, i need a turbo upgrade

    Stock Neons trap at 98-100mph mph stock in the 1/4mile.. my car traps at 100mph usually, plus Neons are lighter and FWD so they have an advantage on an roll of course. I have an advantage from an stop so it evens out sort of

    Anyway, I think the results will be different on the next vid anyway But if you get an turbo upgrade, pick me one up too ok!

    Wow! i totally couldnt even see the jetta in the first race. your adams apple was in the way.

    Seriously though, Paulrex is like the man with the videos .. save for that little "race" from a roll with the neon.

    Thanks for posting all the vids though, they are all very cool.

    I really need JDM wrx seats, they are alittle more slender, and have more upper body area support. For money/airbag reasons I guess, we got the seats from the JDM/UK Impreza NA IIRC.. I don't think the seats in our cars come on any other wrx besides Puerto Rico I think.
