we both started from about 20mph in 2nd gear...by the top of third he was still right behind me. At that point I shut it down as I was going over 90mph. This is exactly the result I expected with basically a TurboXS stage 4 + TMIC ( and a few other goodies and tweaks but still TurboXS unichip ) vs a Porsche turbo. For the unbelievers, my WRX will do an average of 4sec flat to 60mph with a good launch and shift to second...that is within a tenth of any published porsche turbo times... plus my car weighs a little over 2900lbs since its gone on a diet vs the several hundred pound heavier Porsche.
Of course the Porsche is going to eat my WRX over 100mph, there's absolutely no doubt about that. But for bang for the buck it is pretty awesome to have a 4 door 2L subaru than can hang with a Porsche turbo to 100mph for 1/4 of the price! ..that was definitely the most satisfying little acceleration contest I have ever had.
